When I turn my ps3 on, when its suppose to turn and stay green all the time. It just back fires and turns red again, so the order goes like this : red, green, red !

Also known as the PS3 RROD. Probably due to overheating GPU or Memory chips. Cleaning might help. Turn off the switch on back, hold down eject and power at the same time and turn on the rear power switch. Keep holding till the fan runs at full speed. There will be a noticeable increase in fan speed, this might help clean internally. If not Professional disassemble and repair will be needed.

When you turn it on the light stays green for 10 seconds then turns red and goes off.

Sounds like you may have the YLOD or a bad power supply.

If your system is still under warranty then i suggest calling sony to fix it. Otherwise you can take your chances fixing it your self or paying someone like myself to fix it for you.

When i turn on my playstation, it goes from green to stanby.

if its an original ps3

then its overheated and shutdown and some parts have bassically melted

then sensors for them have been proved to not be very good which is a shame seeing as the tech has been arround for a very long time on pc's

best thing to do is take it to a repair place and get the mto test the hardware then either get the broken part replaced or buy a new ps3
