If in the process of coming on briefly or shutting off, it displays a yellow light on the LED panel of the game, this means your system is probably overheated and you did not allow the console to have sufficient space or room to be well ventilated.
There are many various ways to solve this problem by yourself using home techniques or methods but most of them are to be done at your own risk.
Below are a few links that can help you fix this problem

hope this will help you but if you do not want this, you can send your console to an expert to fix it.

Playstation turned itself off then when I tried to turn back on shuts itself off within seconds


PS3 Red/Yellow Light

If you are seeing this error it is because the GPU and the CPU have overheated and you will need to stop the heat to fix this. You can send the console in and they will fix it for you but it does take about 4 weeks to fix.

You can quite easily fix this with a few household tiems from home.

My ps3 turn off by itself while Im playing a game


The auto shut-off will usually cause this because of overheating. Make sure the area around the PS3 is well ventilated and feel the PS3 right after it happens. If its really hot to the touch, try getting a cooling device.

I was playing for like 3 hrs and turned off by it self and then I try to turn it back on and it did but it shut down at the same time


If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...

System shut down by itself during a game, and now when i go to turn it on it keeps shutting itself off


There are many reasons cause PS3 shutdown itself. Your PS3 hardware need some kind of fixes. Send back to Sony is expensive. You better repair by yourself. I suggest you bought this guide, you can learn how to trouble shooting and disassembly your console and fix it at last. Good luck!

Hello, My PS3 just keeps turning itself off. I have tried to reset the system but it keeps flashing red and yellow lights and then turns itself off into standby mode? HELP......


Try removing the game inside your disc. then try removing other external hardware and slots and try again. If problem persists it might be a system problem. Please go to the shp from where you bought it and ask them for a replacement.

PS3 switching itself off


Let me guess...

You get a blinking red light then it shuts off.

Your system probably overheated and unfortunately Sony has it setup so that when it happens you have to send it in for service.

Are you still under warranty?
