Fully backwards compatible ps3 shuts down with 3 beeps and flashing red light when trying to play ps1 games


Hmmmnnn, consider the reason they pulled the rev compatible system off the market. It is possible to be getting the symptoms of YLOD without it actually happening with some games. The older games spun faster(sometimes) and made the system work harder. It could be heating up and shutting down right at the point of failure. I've seen 2 different revers compatible systems YLOD the same way. Good luck.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: i had a power cut whilst playing ps3 , now it wont...


First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 if off (red light solid) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if this works, otherwise we'll try step 2.

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 -.-

Red flashing light


Red flashing light is an over heating issue. Try unplugging and leaving for a while if not take a look at this. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721

Playstation 3 shuts down as game loads


Generally there are a couple of things that can cause this. Bad installs of games, and more commonly thermal damage. The bad news is it will probably have to be repaired and Sony generally charges about $150 for that. Hopefully its under warranty? =)

There is some talk that the new firmware download may have altered physical parts that control the temperature inside the unit. Although that's just heresay i've been hearing more and more people thinking this is the case.
