My ps3 turns off a couple of seconds after it is turned on then the red power light blinks


If your PS3 console attempts to turn on, then beeps and a yellow light comes on and then your Sony PlayStation 3 shuts down or does not power on at all or shows no video means YLOD or Yellow Light Of death has occurred! A guy had same problem with His console 6 months back, He was able to fix it for 15 bucks ! without sending it to Sony for costly repair.

Ps turns off straight away. was midway though a game when suddenly shut down and then when trying to restart the system, it automaticly turns off. no ejection option available ...or anything for that...


It sounds like yellow light of death. If you answer yes to these questions then thats what it is. I have a step-by-step instructions on how to fix it.

1. When you turn your console on, when it turns off does it beep 2 to 3 times before shutting down?

2. When it does shut down right before it does pay attention to the lights, do you see a yellow on blink once for a split second?

3. Afte the console shuts completely off does the red light just sit there and blink?

Yellow light on start up then shuts straight down


I think that the ac adapter or the 3 pegs might be broken. Buy a new ac adapter then.

My ps3 keeps shutting down. It is ventilated. What


If it is blinking a red light this is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know). This is caused by the unit overheating causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

From what I understand its a problem with the backwards compatibililty(the engine/drive that lets you play ps1/ps2 games)on the 60g.Sony says they have never heard of this problem yet these models are no longer in production.I have had mine for 2 years and it died today,same problem.
