    why ps3 logs me off automatically then dont log be back on and the lights flash green yellow red why?

  • boblohn Feb 21, 2009

    same thing. and as far as i know, there is no do it yourself solution. you have to send your system into sony to get replaced. for about $150 if its out of warranty. if its in warranty, you might get lucky and have it replaced for free.

Send it to joegoods.com. it is a motherboard issue and requires a complete reflow of the motherboard.

Hey teahupoo , I have seen many "guides" that claim to fix this. But as far as I have seen, there is no quick fix for this. People refer to this problem as the PS3 version of the red ring of death that plagues the Xbox. Call Sony, they may replace it for free! Hope this helps. Good luck.

My ps3 turns greenlight then goes yellow and keeps flashing red don't want to switch on how do i fix it


This is called the YLOD. It happens by the system overheating and the solder holding the cpu and gpu to the motherboard is loosened. The only way to fix this is to void the warranty and take the system apart and reflow the motherboard or send it back to Sony for $150.00.

Ps3 will not turn on


Your playstation is oficially broken and needs to either be replaced or repaired. Sony will fix this problem for $150.00 through their website(under warranty its free). This problem happened because it overheated and the soder melted to the point where the componets shut down and the unit went into safe mode :( :(
