It seems as a hardware problem, if you still have warranty you should contact SONY and they will replace your PS3 with a new one. Otherwise, you can try opening it and cleaning the fan if you feel comfortable with this or have an expert open it if you don't.Philip

I had the same problem a few months ago. Unfortunately, this is a sign of wear and tear and as a result your PS3 motherboard is overheating. Signs of this include loud fan noise and large amounts of heat being dissipated from the venting holes. If this is the case you need to consult Sony or a qualified technician to repair the delicate hardware.

My ps3 has ylod and i cant get my game out is there any way i can open it.


Assuming it is one of the older style ps3's you can usually get it out without opening up the machine:

1. First shut down the system by flipping the power switch in the back off.

2. Hold down the eject disc button.

3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.

4. When the green light comes on, wait a few seconds then tap the eject button a couple times. The fan will run on full power and the disc will eject.

When ever i turn on my ps3, it stays green for a few seconds then beeps and a light green comes on and then it turns it self off.


Your post is a little confusing. So youre saying that when you turn your PS3 on and the green light comes on...the system then beeps and then turns itself off? nothing shows up on the TV?

If that is the case, its definitely something wrong with the system/OS. Did you download anything or install anything from the net THROUGH the PS3? Or have you hooked up any external drives that may be carrying a virus? Linux systems are not 100% protected from viruses these days so getting one on the PS3 is not unheard of.

You may want to check and see if your system is overheating. Make sure its well ventilated and also use the air-in-a-can **** to clean out some of the dust

Same **** happened with my PS3. So I returned it, and got the newer version of it. I went home and plugged it in: The fan came on along with a green light. BUT THEN..... 5 seconds into it, the damn thing shuts down and flashes red along with the three beeps. Not to mention the yellowish orange light. Even the brand new version did the same ****. I am in your same position and I would love to hear a way to fix this. Pretty weak.

No sound or picture for ps3


You both sound like you have an over heating issue. Mostly if the fan does not stay on. The PS3 always has a fan on, just the first setting is very quiet. Do you feel any air being blown out of the back (where the power cord goes in)?
