Hi.
This has happened to a few other people, and the solution was always the same.

Turns out that the power supply inside the PS3's aren't as good of quality as the rest of the machine, and everyone that has had a problem like this has had to have the PS replaced.

If the unit is still under warranty, then return it and get a replacement.

If not, then your best bet is to take the unit to Fry's or BestBuy. These two companies both have techs trained in working on game consoles. They both are skilled at the repairs, and seem to be equally as fast at getting the job done quickly, so that you can get back to gaming.

I hope this helps you out, so that you realize what's the deal, and good luck !!

PS3 froze will not turn on.


Usually, this problem comes from either having too much dust on your hard drive or not having correctly functioning power cords. Take out your hard drive, carefully dust the inside, reset the hard drive, and put it back in. To check the power cords, replace the ones on your computer with the ones from your ps3 and try to turn it on. There are various guides online if you need help with the hard drive reset and dusting the interior. I am not sure if this voids your warranty or not so be careful. Personally I would try this first though, because Sony charges $120 to fix your machine and it could take months for them to do it.

My ps3 wont turn on. when the power button is pressed ,it turns green for 2 seconds then yellow followed by a rapid beeping with a blinking red light occurs


The PS3 YLoD can be caused by a number of things. Most commonly, it's a result of a hardware failure, overheating, dust build-up inside the system, and occasionally just due to loose cables.

Let's start with the easy stuff first to narrow down the cause. Follow the steps below:

1. Assuming you were playing your PS3 when the YLoD happened, move your PS3 into an open area with a lot of ventilation and let it cool down for 20-30 minutes. Once it's cool, try to turn it back on and see if that helped. If not, go to Step 2.

2. Unplug all of your cables from the PS3 including the A/V and the power cord. Also unplug the power cable from the wall. Now try to plug them all back in and make sure they are all secure. Turn the PS3 back on and check if it's working. If not, go to step 3.
How to Fix PS3 Yellow Light on Your Own

3. Get a vacuum with a hose attachment and vacuum out the vents on the system. Sometimes dust build-up alone can cause your PS3 to stop working properly. You might also want to take one of those cans of air and blow it in there to get some of the stubborn pieces of dust out.

If none of those solutions worked, the problem lies within the PS3 and you will probably need to take it apart to fix it. The most likely scenario is that your heat-shield overheated, the chipsets got shifted due to heat, and your solder could be cracked.

the causes of the yellow light of death
Here are some of the top causes of the PS3 Yellow Light of Death:

* Overheating - The unit gets too hot. Sometimes caused by too much dust buildup in the vents.
* Blu-Ray drive failure.
* Bad power supply.
* Hard-drive critical errors.
* Hardware malfunction on the motherboard - The solder starts to crack due to excessive heating and cooling.

if you have warranty then take it back if you dont then you can either try the repair yourself how ever this is not very easy to do and can cause more harm than good you will need special tools to take it apart and its not easy you also need an understanding of heat seal paste and heat sinks due to this being the part you need to remove and put back

i do the repair for about 25pound plus parts so if you are paying someone to do it then your looking at least that price, i only charge if the problem is fixed so try and get the best price you can.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Ps3 wont work


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.
