My ps3 system made 3 beeps, then shut itself off but the red standby light is flashing. wen i press the I/O it stops flashing but doesnt turn back on. press it again and it turns on for about 3-4 secs...


Does the red light turn yellow at anytime soon?
If so it's a classical case of YLOD (Yellow Light of Death, you can find it all over the internet).

Best thing you can do is contact your Sony PlayStation support department for your country.
The number should be listed in the manuals that came with the unit.

I hope this works, please rate.

I dropped my ps3 it works but when i turn it on the green light apperas then in two seconds i8t makes the reset noise then turns yellow then red. The red light then continues to flash. What do I do now


Hello

With the PS3 in Standby mode (Red light on), press and hold the Start button until you hear a single beep, followed by double beeps.

Connect the controller using USB cable and press the PS button on the controller.

Now, the system restore screen will come up

You have several options here for restoring the system, some will unfortunately wipe up all your data, others will make you lose the file naming.

Good luck

My ps3 froze and now doesnt show anything on the screen and controller doesnt turn it on. nothing happens


try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

Flashing red light


Hi Sean,

This is a problem with the PS3 hard drive, you can do 1 of 2 things.

If the unit is still within it's 12 months warranty then speak to Sony and get it repaired/replaced or you can do it yourself. You will need to take it apart and remove the hard drive, then boot it up with out the drive in and turn it off, then put the hard drive back in and start it up again, from what I've heard that's only a temporary fix however. Below is a link to someone who's having the same problem on a website that I regularly visit.

My ps3 doesnt work


if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...

hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)
