    well it was running perfectly and then randomly it made three beeps and shutoff. the red light kept blinking but I just turned the power of from the back and restarted it. then after about 5 mins it randomly just turned off again, beeping three times and the red light blinking. now it has gone even worse where you turn it on and 2 seconds later it beeps and turns off, still the red light blinking. I can't even get my cd out.

Red light blinks and wont stay on when push power button


You can do this fan test.

Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it and you should hear a beep.

The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.

After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and the red light will blink. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.

Tell me how this goes!!

Was playing a ps2 game when the PS3 suddenly shut off. When I try to turn it back on by the back, the light turns red. As soon as i press the power button it beeps once, I hear a whir, then it powers off....


does the light blink red?
if so you have the TERRIBLE BLINKING LIGHT OFF DEATH
you have a few options:
1.call sony, send in your ps3, recieve a refurbished ps3 for $150
2.find a local to fix it for much cheaper
3.buy a new console

PS 3 Won't turn on blinking light


Are you trying to turn the PS3 on via bluetooth controller? If so, attempted to turn PS3 on from console itself. Sometimes the controller will get out of sync with the system and not allow for turning on remotely.
