This is a common occuring problem what has happend is you have the ylod better known as the yellow light of death. This means the solder on the motherboard has come loose and won't supply the needed power to keep the system running so you need to either send it in for repair which is $110. It's gone for two weeks then back just as good as new

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Blinking red light


General hardware failure. Usually the red light means either bad power supply or bad hard drive.

You can start by pulling the hard drive out and then power on the system.

More than likely it's a power supply / motherboard issue, in which case you'll have to contact Sony for repair.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

PS3 does not turn on. When I press the on button, red light turns green thne to yellow then to flashing red.


This is called a System Error. It is about the same as the Xjunks ring of death. You need to call Sony if you haven't broken your seal yet.
