    The console just crashed mid game. Now if I try to power it up it switches off instantly, the green light going yellowish for a couple of seconds, then the dreaded flashing red light. Its a 60GB model I have if that helps anyone. Any help is appreciated.

My PS3 was working fine, its the original PS3 model when it first came out in 2007. Was playing black ops, then it just froze, so i switched it off. Switched it back on, flicked to HDMI channel - nothing....


One of the biggest causes of the blinking red light problem is placing the console with the fan vents sitting against the floor or up against a wall where air cannot flow freely in and out of the console.and to fix PS3 red light blinking is to unplug the console from the wall for about half an hour and then plug it back in. This doesn't always work, but some people have had success with problems other than overheating...

Updated system last night and this morning when i powered it on, it came on and worked fine for about 3 mins then it shut off with a flashing red light... now it wont start up at all...


Oh man thanks SONY, right?

Well you should try a video reset first and if that doesn't work then pull the hard drive out and try booting the console with no drive.

For the video reset: While the PS3 is off (solid red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know what happens.

My ps3 is coming up with a red screen and saying a serious error has occurred. Contact technical support for assistance. The last time i played was last night fifa 10 everything was fine turned it this...


Hello kelsbels1982

The exact cause of the RSOD (Red Screen Of Death) is not exactly known. Sony acknowledges it is a problem, and will repair or exchange your PS3 unit. Whether or not it will cost you anything depends on if your PS3 is still under warranty.

Sorry there's not an immediate solution to your problem.

PS3 Turning off at random(overheating?)


your ps3 could be in the process of breaking i got the ylod just last night your warranty has expired you could just run your ps3 untill it breaks then open it up and try to repair it but thats a tricky thing to do. and dont leave games in it incase it breaks they will be trapped inside, my modern warfare 2 is stuck in mine -.-

Ps3 turns off beeps twice but there is no yellow light only red!


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.
