There is nothing wrong with the PS3. I read in the users manual that when the the green light on the PS3 turns yellow or flashes yellow the PS3 is too hot and you need to turn it off. It has never happened to me because I keep my PS3 in a open area.

When the PS3 gets to hot you need to let it sit and cool for a little while and then you can turn it back on and start playing again. If the PS3 cools for a while and it still doesn't work you need to call Sony.

Ps3 problem : wont turn on


First Try these steps for basic troubleshooting, your PS3 has got "Yellow Light of Death" hardware fault

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again

2) Check if there's any loose cable.

3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.


The problem you have encountered needs professional service and repair, so do not try fiddling much with your PS3 at home, if the above steps do not work please send your playstation 3 for repairs to Sony.

Wishing you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

Actualy it means that the Ps3 overheated and the saunter that was connecting the mother board to the chips has melted off. You could repair it yourselve or send it into Sony for a reapir

Playstation starts but stops


There's nothing you can do unless you have electronics experience. Save yourself the grief and call Sony @ 1-800-345-SONY

It could be: the power supply, hard drive.

It's probably: the motherboard.

Flashing red light


Go to you www.youtube.com and you may be able to find helpful videos on this. But if you bought it new it is under warranty and they will fix it. You just pay for shipping.
