Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Turns on then turns off with the red light flashes with two beeps
It could be a corrupt file partition in your HDD. Have you upgraded to the newest firmware from PSN recently? If so, it could be the problem. You will have to download the latest firmware from PSN website onto a thumb drive, then start your system in safe mode. There are several videos on youtube that explain how to do this in detail. Good luck. ^^

PS3 has overheated and the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and heat sync need to be replaced. the gpu and cpu may need to be reflowed as well. Had the same problem and fixed mine. The thermal compound was pretty much gone when i opened up the system. Also dont keep your ps3 on its side leave it flat this will help keep the compound from moving as much.
