This is the equivalent of the Red Ring of Death on an Xbox 360. Contact Sony and see if it is still under warranty. If so, have them fix it for you.

Lights flashing when turned on, replaced batteries,fuse, in drive position


the amount of flashing lights will give you a Flash code. If the the lights are going up and down, you may have a locked joystick. one method is to turn on and (within 10 sec.) push the horn button twice. Push the power button then push the joystick forward until there is a beep sound then back until you hear a beep sound to unlock.

WHEN POWER ON CHAIR SPEED LIGHT BLINK .BOTH BATTERY WAS REPLACE AND JOYSTICK.SAME PROBLEM


The battery meter lights will flash a flash code when something is wrong. If the lights are flashing the same number of lights each time. get that number it is a flash code. if the lights are cascading up and down that indicates that the Joystick is locked. unlock by turning on the joystick and pushing the horn button twice within 10 sec. of turning on. Or push on button and hold the joystick gimbal forward until it beeps then back until it beeps. This should have it unlocked, if not Pride Jazzy Tech 800-800-8586

After pressing the on button it turns green for 5 seconds then it flashes yellow/orange for a second then it flashes red.


Yellow Light of DeathThe "Yellow Light of Death" or YLOD is the common phrase people use to describe the following sequence when they try to turn on their PS3:

  • Press Power Button
  • Red Light Flashes Three Times
  • Yellow Light Flashes
  • Green Light Flashes
  • Beeps Three Times
  • Red Light Flashes

The sequence above may vary a bit but you do see the flashing yellow light (sometimes shows up as orange) that normally you would not see when operating your PS3. The YLOD is a general hardware fault that can mean a lot of things. However, one of the problems is cracked solder that leads the PS3 to think one of its internal chips is not connected or is broken somehow. Cracked solder can happen when the chips get too hot (RSX most likely) and leads the motherboard to start bending, which may crack the solder. Changing the power supply (lower the average wattage going to the chips to lower the heat) and better thermal compound (heat dissipates faster to the heatsink) may prevent this error from occurring. However, if your PS3 has already had the YLOD, then you can reflow your motherboard every few months to keep it working (but it is not a permanent fix as the YLOD usually comes back).

Tv will not power up


yellow flashing power light codes: flashes 1 every 5 secs = one of 3 fans not spinning. 2 every 5 secs.= lamp cover open.

5,6,7,8,9,or10 x per 5 secs. are power supply voltage errors.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.
