Would has to open the unit and check for bad power supply , if the power supply is ok ( no bad capacitor ) the problem would be the main pcb or the hard drive

PS3 error 2beeps and blinking red light


hi there,
it sounds like its a common problem you have with the ps3, its hard drive related, luckily if that's all it is there is an easy fix. once it's not a flashing yellow light known as (YLOD, yellow light of death) then it should be a simple matter of just removing the HDD and re inserting it again. Find below some youtube videos on the cause and how to fix it. Hope this helps

I have a insignia lcd color tv & dvd player & the hdmi port wont let me play my PS3 system


If your sure the PS3 is not the problem. You can try uplugging the television for about 5 minutes or so and plugging back in. With the PS3 hdmi hooked up to tv turn on tv. IF it still doesnot recognize then you either have a faulty main board on the television or a problem in the PS3.

You can reset the PS3 to make sure its not causing the problem.
With the PS3 turned off, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 quick beeps then release and press power again. This will reset the PS3. You will not lose any stored information doing this!.

Hope it works!!!

I turned on my ps3 and nothing is happening it is not giving me the option to sign in or anything. just the blue backround nothing else and now it wont let me turn it off.


Sounds like you PS3 software has become corrupt. Follow these steps to sort it but I must warn you, you will lose all your save games!!
Step 1. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later then beep once more and turn off. Release the power button when it turns off.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. As soon as you hear the two beeps let go of the power button.
Step 4. Your PS3 will now boot into recovery mode. Connect you controller via USB when asked and press the PS button.
Step 5. Select option 5 from the recovery menu, "Restore PS3 system". This will rewrite your PS3 software and hopefully should sort your problem.

My playstation 3 wont read any discs, films, games, or music. The machine just stopped whilst playing a dvd and now refuses to work


Dear,
you may try to use the PS3 recovery options.
The PS3 stores a copy of firmware drivers on the hard-drive and will reload any corrupt files. To access the recovery menu, do this:
  1. Make sure the PS3 is turned off
  2. Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off.
  3. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try)
  4. It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable,
  5. Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu.
Be aware that you may lose all your data previously saved. Good luck, Peter
