Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the RED LIGHT OF DEATH ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

TV comes on and then shuts off,and a small red l keeps flashing.


If its flashing red repeating groups of three then the lamp door is not detected .
If its flashing in groups of four then a fan is not starting.Look in the vent in the back and spray some canned air into then big fan on the left(looking at it from the back) .That fan may be failing and has gotten to a place where it can't quite start again and just moving it a little with some air will make it work for a while.
If its not one of those two things let me know.

Ps3 turns off beeps twice but there is no yellow light only red!


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.

Flashing red light


Your power supply is faulty I'm afraid. Unless you have soldering skills, I am afraid you will need to contact a professional TV repair person. If you feel confident to try the repair, contact me with the model number, and I will let you know what components you need to change
