You can do this fan test.
Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it, it will beep
The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.
After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and blink a red light.
When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.
Let me know how this goes!!

P.S. It will not harm your ps3, It's testing the cooling fan.

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.

When i turn on my ps3 to choose a user it doesnt show any of the users i have, so obvioulsy i cant do anything on my ps3. All it shows is the wavy background, Help me pleaseeee!


Try doing a master reset of your system.
1.) Turn off the hard switch on the back of your system and wait 30 seconds.
2.) Turn the hard switch back on so that the PS3 displays the red "stand by" light on the front LED.
3.) Hold your finger on the soft "on switch" (above the red LED) for about 10 seconds until the PS3 emits a beep.
Good Luck!

Ps3 problem, ps3 doesnt turn on (stays in red light flashing)


More than likely your system has overheated. The thermal compound has heated and moved away from the CPU/GPU and the heat sync keep the heat from being dissipated via the heat sync. Eventually you will get the YLOD which is the equivalent of the Xbox 360 RROD. This is due to heat sysnc problems. Your CPU and GPU will more than likely need to be reflowed. I got the YLOD on my PS3 around the first of March 09. I also fixed my PS3 in about an hour. I have had no problems since. You can slow the YLOD but i dont believe it can be stopped. It seems it will eventually happen to all PS3's. One tip do not stand the PS3 on its side keep flat. This will help keep the thermal compound from moving as much when it heats up. Also i run a home based computer repair business in southern California. Feel free to email me at dwdpcrepair@gmail.com.
