I am not sure why but hopefully this will work... Shut down the PS3 make sure it's shut down... Unplug the main power cord and after a few minutes replugged it and turn it on! I hope it works! I usally have crazy problems like that but as soon I reset it and I forget the problem!

Ps3 turns on then turns off and beeps three times

Sounds like a power supply issue. Unless it is showing any other colours after the green light. Red would be ylod which means a phone call to Sony. Try a new power supply and see if that fixes it.

My ps3 goes to boot up an then shuts down beeps three times shows a blue light then a quick yellow light then goes to blinkin red light

You could try pressing the power button and holding it down. You will hear the first beep when you press it but hold it down until it beeps a second time it will take 5 to 10 seconds. This will reset the console and it may boot up. If this does not work you can go to and check the user knowledgebase and/or support for a solution.

When you turn on the playstation 3, the green light shows up then it beeps three times and goes back to red light / off

turn it off from the back then turn it on, hold the eject button down not sure how long for maybe even up to 12 seconds what should happen is the playstation has a mode that blows the fans in reverse to clean out the system, thats how i fixed mine that was doing the same thing.

When I turn on my Playstation 3, a green light stays on and then the fan goes into "Turbo Mode" for about 30 seconds, the Playstation 3 beeps 3 times and the green light blinks. -No yellow light appears.

have you ever had the playstation taken apart? Maybe you need to replace the Thermal past on the processors. It is due to an overheating problem. I have one right now that does that.

Camera will not stay on.....

the 3 beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.
