Remove the power for 30 seconds and try again. if no ligths are on it you are looking at a power supply, fuse or motherboard failure. It could be the power cord but that is not likly.

Hi

Try switching off the master switch in the back of the unit and then switch it back on again after that you should be able to start up normally. .Also double-check to make sure the power cable is pushed all the way in to the back of the console. Also, try another power outlet and make sure to use a surge protector if available.

PS3 has been built to shut-down by itself when it senses the internal temperature is dangerously high.It is suggested to call sony.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

if your trying to play a ps2 or ps1 game then your ps3 is not backwards compatable so it will only play ps3 games that goes for most ps3's that are 20gb or 40gb cause we have 2 ps3s in my house my sons is 40 and mines is 80gb and his wont play ps2 games but mines will and thats the reason why.

My ps3 beeped 3 times then turned off, now it wont turn back on and a yellowish light appears when i try to turn it on, then it shuts down, i am in australia, what can i do about it?


The Yellow Light of Death (YLoD) is a fatal error that occurs when your Playstation 3 (PS3) overheats.
The welds that connect vital components to the system board soften and break.

It's manifestation - a blinking yellow light on a PS3 that refuses to do anything else.

You have 2 options at this point:
  1. Return the unit to Sony.

    if your PS3 is still under warranty, the fix will be free; otherwise, Sony will charge a flat fee of $150.

  2. Fix it yourself for less than $80.

    This list contains the necessary tools and components to effect your PS3's meteoric rise from it's YLoDic grave as set forth in this free YLoD Repair Guide.

Hi my name is Juan and unfortunately your ps3 is dead what happen is that for some reason it got so hot and the processor stop working when you turn on the ps3 it does a self test and if something is not working right it turns off immediately with a green yellow red light so don't spend your money in another power supply I can guaranty to you is not the power supply I do sell and fix playstations and this is why I know this this problem is common on the 60Gb and 80Gb also in 40Gb but not like on the 60and 80Gb

PS2 games not working on 80G Platstation 3


Though the ps3 80g is backwards compatible,it does not play back all ps2 games. go to sony's website,i believe they have a list of games that are,and are not compatible.also make sure your ps3 has all the latest software updates.if you have it hooked to the internet im sure it does
