There is no tray on the playstation 3. It's slot-loaded drive; meaning it pulls the disks in and spits them out without opening a tray like you see on a desktop PC or a Xbox. If it's just beeping then that usually means there's no disk in there. The best way to check is if you see a blue light beside your red/green power light, then there's a disk in there. If it's just your red/green power light, there's no disk inside.
Hi there, try to do a hard reboot on your system. I suggest you have the system turned off, and when you power it up from the system itself hold the power button not just push it. It will beep and turn on but while you are holding the button it should beep beep again and turn back off continue to hold the button and it should boot up 1 more time. or you may have to let go of the button and hit it 1 more time, but it may help your situation
no the floppy disk is not faulty, it is normal and required that the floppy disk drive light blink to indicate that the drive is working. And about the power on the power button might be stuck inside that is why it keeps turning on immediately you connect to main power
try removing the hard drive then booting it up then putting it back in and booting up again.
then try holding the power button while the ps3 is in standby (red light) till it beeps,... then beeps again,...then turns red again,....then let go and hold the power button again real fast you should hear beep....then a double beep beep. let go of button and you should see recovery console. choose rebuild file system. it will reboot and go through the rebuild steps. then if it still doesnt work go through the steps of recovery consol again and choose rebuild database.
This is to do a factory hard reset on PS 3 all files and systems settings will be deleted and restored back to factory this should hopefully solve your hard drive a problem. depending on the system reformat clould take 3 1/2 hours do a full format as to clear
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format.. You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset)
try safemode hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.
once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.
after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)
6 long beeps indicates that there is a problem with the memory, take them out, clean the contacts and the DIMM slots and reseat them. Hopefully this will resolve the problem, if not new memory may be required kind regards
I think you may mean the Hard Disk light not floppy, although, if you have a floppy disc drive, check there's no floppy disc in it as it will stop the boot up.
But if it's not the floppy, and the hard disc drive light stays on, possibly the hard drive is faulty, maybe damaged sectors.
The other maybe is a possible memory fault, although the beep codes can only be identified if you know the motherboard make.
