Playstation Won't Stay Turned On

5 Replies 4,839 Views Created 21-02-2010

Wondered if anyone casn help me out here. I was just playing a game on the system when it froze and I got 3 beeps and the system turned off leaving the red light flashing on the front. I pressed the on off button and the red light stopped flashing. I tried to turnit back on again, which it did with the green light coming on, but it then flashed the blue light on and gave me 3 more beeps before getting the flashing red light again. I've tried ejecting the disc to turn the system on but again a split second after the green light comes on it beeps 3 times and turns off.

I've turned it off fully at the back and left it for 15 minutes but when turning it on again, you guessed it, 3 beeps and a flashing red light.

Does anyone know what wrong with my PS3 please ?

 

Thanks

Does a yellow light appear between the blue and green lights and the flashing red light?

Sometimes for about a nano second. Me thinks it's broke. I'm going to take my hard drive out that I put in a few months a go and try the original 40 GB and turn it on. If it works the hard drive going back. If it doesn't at least I know it's the machine itself and a call to Sony beckons. I'm devastated.

parkins - if you are getting the yellow light, or if the PS3 won't turn on and instead rapidly flashes the red light, then these are the symptoms of the 'YLOD' failure.

For ideas on what to do next, click my 'YLOD' link, found in my sig line below :)
