If you are trying to say it powers off immideatly with a yellow light flash then you have the yellow light of death (ylod) I fixed mine using a youtube video. You would be better off sending in to sony for $149 for a refurbished one to solve.

I cut my ps3 on and it beeps three times then cuts off

There is a malfunction with the hard disk, or internal proccessor board or chip itself. The hardware is not booting properly so it shuts down so it does not damage itself further before repair is performed.

Hi there traycarla

The Problem you have described is the Red light of death, AKA the RLOD. This is caused by the GPU and the CPU chips losing connection with the motherboard due to overheating.

The video keeps cutting out and back in on my XBOX 360

Make sure there is nothing wrong with the video cables. It might me loose, or the wire might be damaged. Check the cords and the input on your television.

Ps3 wont stay on.

HI, if you are getting a yellow light during this ordeal, i would suggest purchasing a mini cooler for this unit. it is overheating at this time. this will destroy your power unit soon. If you are getting the red light at this time, the power board may be already damaged.

In this case, contact Sony for a power unit replacement procedure.

Power cuts off

Might be a faulty power supply mate , when you turn the xbox on observe the power indicator on the power brick.
Green means its okay
Amber means the console is in standby
Red means the Brick has had it.

Try a friends power brick to see if it does the same.
