Try using the controller to turn it on by pressing the PS button on the center of the controller.

If this does not work insert a disk or eject a disk.

If non of these work then you may have to contact Sony if your machine is in warrenty. To me it sounds like the front tabs on the controll board are bent too much from pressure over time or its shot completely.

If you can get to turn on do you get anything else happening ie. beeps and yellow light?

Mine wont turn on


Hello, did you check the battery? Tu get the full charge, the headset red light must stay steady on. If you get it charged you can pair it: hold power button till the two leds blinks, now scan for bluetooth from PS3 and choose your mic setting. Other than that I'd call madcatz technical support. Good luck, Peter_Rei

This is called the yellow light of death. Cause is sever heat damage to the internal components. Either send it in for repair or replace. Sorry about this but the truth is brutal.

PS3 HAS POWER BUT WILL NOT STAY ON. WILL TURN ON THEN TURN OFF WITH RED LED FLASHING IN A STEADY PACE OF 1 SECOND APART.


Sounds like the Yellow Light of Death. It is faulty solder on the graphics chip. You need an Infra Red BGA reflow of the solder underneath the chip. Best place in the UK is: http://www.playbackups.com/Playstation3-xbox-360-repair-repairs-manchester-bga-solder.html

Hello. Make sure your PS3 is in standby mode. (Steady red light on front) Press and hold the power button for about 15 sec till the PS3 turns on beeps twice and turns off. Then touch the power button again and it should turn on and be reset to standard resolution. Good luck and thank you!!
