You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:
Turn off Playstation®3. 2. Hold the power button down; the system
will turn on and turn off once again. 3. Once the System has been
shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps 4.
When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button. 5. You will
be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS
button 6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
The current Recovery
Menu supports: • Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System. •
Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default. •
Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files. •
Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3. • Restore
PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch. •
System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System
If the above
steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update
Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).
on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle
then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others
as well as cookies.
You could also try this as well: put the
PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and
switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button
still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working
this may cool it down. It might be over heating.
But if your
problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further
Hey there they way i see your Playstation 3 might be overheating usually thats not the problem with this type of console but there is always a possibility. If your warranty is still in effect i would give Sony a call. I know you have a year of limited warranty on the console so if you are still covered you should take advantage of that. Its most likely your ps3 overheats or something. Make sure all the pheriperals are all the way connected too. Well let me know how this turns out. oh and one more thing if you wanna call Sony make sure you have the serial number of your console and all that info it helps a lot when you have it on hand already. Make sure you have at least 30 to an hour of your time to deal with the problem over the phone with Sony cause it does take some time. Good luck and let me know how that turns out.
