If you were playing for a couple of hours, then it may have overheated, in which case, the PS3 would automatically turn off so it doesnt get damaged by running hot. So then it wouldnt let you turn it back on because its still hot.

Play station three will not turn on on then off when power button is pushed.


First, old PS3 or new slim PS3?

The old models have a power switch on the back that must be on. You'll know its on if you have a red light on the front of your console.

To turn the PS3 on, press the power button. A light should turn green, and you're good to go.

To turn off the older PS3's, you must hold the power switch down for several seconds. For the new slim model, just press the button quickly.

Try this : When you put your ps3 on, hold the power button on the front of the console until it beeps 2 times, then the screen should start flashin and after that u'll get the chance to choose what resolution u want and so on.

When you hold down the power button like this, the screen goes back to default. Should fix your problem!

Turn the power off on the switch on the back, and then back on again. Hold down the power button, keep on holding it down after the first beep, but let go once another couple of beeps sound. It should then take at max a minute but then it should show a screen set up section.

Red lights flash when i power it on and wont let the disc enter


im sorry to tell you but it has probalbly died, it happened to me 3 months ago while playing cod5. sony still havent gave it back. i suggest to leave it and if it does boot up, clean away any dust and it should stay well, but if it doesent, you are going to have to ring up sony and tell them EXCACTLY what has happened and will get a new one within 2 eeeks or longer, and the game, it depends as i havent got it back for 2 months. So if you get a new PS3 , clean it regurley or get a engine cooler so it doesent overheat.
