Question about Sony PS3 PlayStation 3 Game Console 40gb
My Sony PlayStation 3 40GB will only display a red power light. The power light is suppose to be green but mine is not, its only red. My ps3 is also experiencing a very loud fan. From the time I start to play a game until i turn the console off the fan is extremely loud. Ive also noticed that the back of the ps3 is very hot as well.
PS3 power light not green, blinking red light problem are common issues that you can try to fix it by yourself. Take a look to the following website to get the answer : PS3 Red Light Fix

Does the PS3 still work while the fan is running. This is typical with PS3, especially if the fan is dirty. It comes on and off to cool down the processors.

Sounds like the PS3 is bricked. Try using the recovery menu, Directions here: http://www.xtremeps3.com/2009/01/28/how-do-i-access-the-playstation-3-recovery-menu/

Sounds like an overheating issue to me. Make sure to keep it in a well ventilated area. Also, the next time you turn it on, put your hand near the vents to see if any hot air is being expelled through them. If there is NO air being expelled, you have a bad fan. It may also be that the heatsinks aren't conducting enough heat from the processors...this could be due to bad thermal paste. You may need to send it in for repair for this you can call 1800mysony.
I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

I'm afraid you have gotten the Yellow Light of Death ( YLOD ) you will need to have your PS3 repaired by a technician or you can Google YLOD and you will find a repair guide.
