My playstation turns on and the green light comes on but it turns to flashing red in about three seconds. It never comes up on the screen


It could be a failing hard drive...Try to remove the hard drive from the system and restart it without the hard drive if you can at least get to the main menu then it is your hard drive that is causing the problem.

Hi.when i turn on my ps3 it freezes at the main screen.please say i dont have to buy a new 1,i dont have the money. :(


Ok, if it is simply the image that is freezing and it is still staying on then there is hope for the PS3.
If however it is turning off with 3 beeps and flashing the red light then that is serious.

Please try the following if it is just the display freezing :

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep one more time and turn off into standby mode (red light on)

Release the power button

Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and this time there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

The PS3 will start up asking you to connect the controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then continue.

After doing the above a menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". This will re-install the PS3 software if it has become corrupt. Ignore any messages about corrupt hard drive, this is normal. If this step does not work try the above again but select option 4, then 5 if that doesn't work.

One of these options should get your PS3 up and running again.

My playstation 3 refuses to start up. When turned on it reaches the main menu but freezes up. Then the system flashes a yellow light and shuts down to a red light. I want to get my ps3 up and running...


2 days ago i got the yellow light of death when the 2.50 update came out rendering my ps3 to a 500 dollar paperweight.
I contacted sony about my problem and my console is under warrenty so it would be fixed for free so it didn't bother me to awful bad
the are sending me a box right now but i have fixed the yellow lights on my ps3 myself and it works now without a hitch
What i did is i took my 120 gb hard drive out of my ps3, Saved it to my cpu tower and did a full format of that drive
then i took my hard drive and put it back in my ps3 and it ask me for the system software 2.50 disk so i downloaded the 2.50 update off of the ps3 website installed it and boom my ps3 work like new
this worked for me so far and have been playing my console for 6 hours now with out a hitch
maybe this will work for some of u aswell

Old ps3 wont turn on, want to retrieve game saves for new ps3


You have the yellow light of death (YLOD). You won't be able to turn on your old ps3 until you get it repaired. OR you CAN put your old hard drive in the new system then do the backup option from the system menu. It will have you upload the data to an external usb drive or Ipod or flash memory drive. Then put your new hard drive back in and do the system recovery option. Hope that helps.

No picture, sound or menu on PS3


Try booting the PS3 with the hard drive removed from the drive bay ( on the side) you just remove the small plastic piece hidding it and remove one screw. It's easy. Let me know what happens. Also make sure you also plug in the original red white n yellow cables too to check if it's just an hdmi issue or system wide.

Menu will not show up


Yes you can!
TRY THIS cmfin and trey!
Shut the system off in the back then un-plug and re-plug all cords.
Turn the power on in the back.
The ps3 should have a red light on in the front.
Push and HOLD the power button in front!
It will go through a red light to green beep at you then go back to red.
This should HARD reset it.
If you have ever changed tvs or played on a different tv the ps3 will sync itself to that tv.
SO a regular tv is different then my hdtv so it would need to be reset to play on a different tv!
I hope it helps!
