I sure wish I could because I have the same problem. I purchased an almost new ps3 from a seller on ebay and all I get is standby then when I try to power it up, I get the blinking red light. Sony wont help because I purchased it from ebay so I am not the original owner. The seller wont help, he swears it didnt have that problem when he shipped it. Ive tried removing the hd, holding down the power button, unplugging it in the back, and nothing helps.

My playstation 3 wont turn on. The console beeps like normal, then the light quickly turns from red to yellow then immediately back to a blinking red. What does this mean?


If ur ps3 console wont start up....then the things to check are>>> 1.check ur power cable 2.check whether u have inserted the disc properly and precisely. 3.check the insertion of memory card... 4.check the video port.......

check your console and making sure those fans are not blocked off. If you notice a lot of dust on the console, clean it off right away. Once you fix the blinking red light of your ps3 and your console is working again, you will want to keep the vents clean and unobstructed.find the hard drive on the side of your console and remove it. Wait a few seconds and replace it. In some cases this may fix PS3 red light. If you still see the blinking red light, there is a chance you have more substantial damage inside your unit.Then unplug the console from the wall for about half an hour and then plug it back in. This doesn't always work, but some people have had success with problems other than overheating.

Ps3 wont power all the way up


if you have moved your ps3 to a different tv or something, the video setting can get messed up, thus having to reset the video settings. here are a few steps to do so.

1. put your finger on the reset button and wait until the ps3 is in standby. (Keep holding your finger on it, don't let go)

2. turn off the ps3 completely by switching off the power switch (make sure your still holding your finger on the reset button)

3. turn your ps3 back on (while still holding the reset button) and you will hear a beep. keep holding the reset button until you hear a second beep. let go of the reset button as soon as you hear the second beep

this should reset the video of your ps3. ive done this to my ps3 before because when i was installing linux i almost screwed up my ps3. when i turned on my ps3 no picture or sound would appear. so i called sony and this is what they told me to do and it worked.

Red Blinking Light


This is a general warning code. Try switching off the power in the back of the system, waiting a minute, then switching it back on. Try turning the system back on and see if it happens again.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

No sound on my PS3 after update 2.5


I had that problem, this worked for me: first switch the system off and on at the back( so the red light is on) hold down the power switch at the front until you hear two beeps. It will reset the ps3 and bring up some display and sound menus,just follow the instructions and it should work. I hope this works for you!
P.S This will NOT wipe the harddrive

Wont turn on


I don't think the outlet you are plugging it into has enough power to support the ps3. Try plugging it into a different outlet and see if it works.
