    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.

    Hi,
    You can try to do a system recovery on your PS3. this will set your PS3 back to factory settings as the settings may have been changed during the use. Here is the process in which you can do a system recovery.'

    PS3 Recovery Menu


    1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
    2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
    3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
    4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
    5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.
    I think you choose option 3 and then repeat and choose option 4. Once you are done with this, try out your PS3.

    Why does my playstation 3 keep turning off and the red light keeps flashing?


    This can can be any one of numerous issues. The first step toward setting everything to rights is to discover what the light is trying to communicate, outside of the obvious fact that your system is not working. First, disconnect everything from the unit, power cable, HDMI, component cables, controller-charging cables or anything else you may have connected.

    Allow the unit to sit and cool off for a few minutes before re-attaching all the component wires. It is a good idea to begin with just the connection to the television. You can also try a manual reset of the system if the above steps do not work, simply press and hold the power button for ten seconds.


    If none of the above works, you are dealing with a serious PS3 flashing red light issue. This could be a faulty power supply, dead hard drive or malfunctioning CPU just to name a few. You will need to check all these components out and determine if they are still functioning correctly. Screwdrivers and a few other common household tools may be required.

    HI there,
    Has your console been shut down during an update?
    If yes, this is the problem.
    If this is not what happened, this may be a software program.
    This you would have to deal with Nintendo for this as No one can repair this.

    Most likely, your system is overheating. Make sure you have several inches of space all the way around your system (except of course underneath it) and that it's not in an enclosed space. The system will shut itself off to keep from breaking. Good luck!
