I've got the older ps3 and I've tried 2 different discs now and I can't get past the start screen before it just beeps and turns off. The yellow light blinks before it goes off. What can I do to fix this. I am hooked up to the Internet wired, and just can't get this to work.
Welcome to the PlayStation Community.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your ps3 has suffered YLOD, meaning Yellow Light Of Death, your PS3 will need to be sent to Sony or a third-party for repair, espcially if B/C is important to you, if it's not then a new PS3 may be your best option, any save-data not already back-up will also now be lost, any trophies earned since your last sync are safe.
