Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When turning on the PS3 it does not turn on..red button flashes then turns back off!!!
You're getting a double beep as it turns off, right? This usually means that your console is not recognizing the HDD (hard drive) for what ever reason. A PS3 will not turn on if it thinks further damage will occur. Here are two things you can do;
1. Try accessing the repair menu. Here's how you do this: With a solid red light showing, hold down both the power & eject buttons. You're going to hear a single beep, then a double beep. Once you hear the double beep, release both buttons. You'll get a message on your TV saying "connect your controller using USB". Following all the instructions will lead you to a 6 item menu. You are going to choose number 3. If that option doesn't work, pick number 6. BE WARNED!!! Number 6 will delete ALL of your saved memory! I know that really sucks, but this may be the only way to save your console short of repair. You can "back-up" your saved data using a "USB storage device" Like a memory stick or even your iPod.
If none of this works, or the console won't let you do the "double button" thing, it'll need to be repaired. You can contact PSR repairs at www.psr1.com. They are really great! They do both warranty & non-warranty repair work for a very decent price. I hope I helped. Good luck, Pam!

This problem usually appear in older versions of the ps3, you can solve this problem very easily.
All you have to do is to disconnect your hdmi cable from the ps3 and reconnect it after a few seconds.
This is called blink ps3, and it has to do with the connection between you LCD TV to your PS3

This is called a System Error. It is about the same as the Xjunks ring of death. You need to call Sony if you haven't broken your seal yet.

hi..Seems like your Power Supply went dead or either a faulty button..
Since those are touch pads those sometimes wear out. Another issue
could be due to overheating..
