Turn the system off completely and then back on with the main power switch on the back off the console. If that doesnt work call Sony technical support for further help.

The power wont turn on the power light goes yellow how can it be fixed?


You have a problem that is referred to as YLOD (yellow light of death). You can fix it by sending your ps3 to Sony, or attempting to fix it yourself (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U70SgRDVcBo). All you need to fix it is a couple screwdrivers, thermal paste, and a heat gun.

My ps3 won't stay on. Everytime I turn it on it turns off.


Yellow Light of Death problem.

It's related to the GPU on the motherboard ( in almost every case)

Sony's the best place to get it fixed right the first time.

1-800-345-SONY

I wouldn't recommend you repairing it yourself.

My PS3 wont turn on it just flashes a yellow light then red light that beeps cant get disc out


I found a way to eject the disk:
  1. Power off the PS3 on the main switch on the back of the console
  2. Press and hold the Eject button
  3. Turn on the main power switch
  4. The PS3 LED will go green and the fan will spin at max speed
  5. Wait a few seconds and press the eject button a couple of times, the disk should now eject
  6. watch the PS3 die after 30s or so…
This procedure did not fix my PS3 but at least I got my disk back before sending it to Sony for repair.

No signal on my TV


try connecting the ps3 to the HDMI only, now when the ps3 is off and all but the single red light is on rest your finger on the on button for about 8 seconds, as soon as you touch it it will turn on but just wait a bit and you'll here the a second beep- this should reset your ps3's video output settings. Try it out, it works for me when i go back and forth from av to HDMI.

Please remember to rate my response if helpful.

PS3 won't turn on


hi there king

This is more an amber coloured light and in the gaming world its known as the YLOD the yellow light of death,

You can send the console to Sony to fix for around $150 4-6 weeks of waiting time.

The More popular choice at moment is to fix it your self at home using a PS3 repair guide made by a professional ps3 repair man for the complete beginner costing around $30 - $40.

You can see why its more popular and why gamers are turning to repair guides everyday.

Go to GAMER FIX and you will find a full description of your problem, also Sony's details if you wish to contact them and the most recommended ps3 repair guide on the web.

You will get back to gaming with either option

Best regards
