    The rear swich turns on, the front switch turns green, then yellow, the blinks red and beeps three times. Thats all it dos it won't start. It doesn't matter what game it's the same for all. I think it's the hard drive or power supply?

    I have a similar problem. It started in the middle of playing Disgaea 3. But now it won't even give me 30 seconds before shutting itself down. It won't eject the disc either.

    Well I know its the PS3. But what game is doing this? Does the PS3 do it with any other game? You have to be more specific with your question.

How do i determine the meaning of one long and two short beeps on a dell inspiron 2650 laptop ?


Hi Glen Growe,

Request you to try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.

    Now check and let me know if there are any status lights and if the computer still beeps. If yes, observe what type of beeps are emitted from the computer.

    Thanks and Regards.

Ps3 turns on then turns off and beeps three times


Sounds like a power supply issue. Unless it is showing any other colours after the green light. Red would be ylod which means a phone call to Sony. Try a new power supply and see if that fixes it.

My Sony PS3 will beep three times and shut down on its own shortly after it is turned on, any idea what it is?


It sounds like the "yellow light of death". After beeping three times does it flash to a yellow light at all? If so your hard drive is no longer good and will either a. need to be replaced by a professional, or b. buy a new ps3.

It is what we all fear on the ps3.

If there is no yellow light, the ps3 is probably just doing a hard shutdown because something is freezing. a few things you can try are. 1. put in a different game, loading that game may be whats causing it to freeze. 2. do the fan test to make sure its not overheating

I turn on the playstation and then it beeps and turns off again


One common error that many PS3 players experience at some time is the beeping error that some call the "three beeps of death". What happens with this error is the PS3 will beep three times in short succession, and then suddenly shut down. Sometimes the unit will restart and play normally after about ten minutes, while for others, it will refuse to turn on at all.
If the three beeps error has happened to you, you are likely wondering if this a serious problem, needing to be sent in for repairs, or whether it is a problem that can be fixed at home. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer for this question because there are potentially multiple causes of the three beep error. If you are lucky, you may only experience this error once or on rare occasions and you may just choose to ignore the problem and deal with the rare shut downs that may occur, as unpredictable as they are.
However, if the three beep error happens repeatedly, you have a more serious issue that is going to need some proper troubleshooting and repairs.
One of the most simple fixes for the three beeps of death problem involves resetting the PS3 hard drive. In other cases, however, the problem may be the result of dirt and dust building up inside the unit, causing it to overheat. By properly cleaning your unit both internally and externally, you may be able to resolve the problem. In the most serious cases, however, you may be facing a motherboard issue that is in need of professional repair or replacement.

PS3 wont stay on


Your PS3 may be overheating. Check the exhaust of the ps3 where the hot air comes out for any excessive dust. If you have a 60GB PS3, you can blow them out by turning off the PS3 by the back switch and then turning it on using the back switch with you finger on the eject button. The PS3 should beep 3 times and your fans should go at full tilt for about 30sec to 1 min.
