Question about Sony Playstation 3 (40 GB) Console

PS3 won't turn on. Red light is on. Green light won't come on

PS3 won't turn on. Red light is on. Power button is not working and the controller won't turn it on either. The power button and eject button stopped working a few months ago. It is still under warranty. I have been using the controllers to turn it on. It seemed too much trouble to take it in for repairs since it was still working. Thanks

My ps3 it goes green beeps twice then goes red and flashes on/off


you might be holding the power on button to long. you hold the power on button until it beeps to reset the video output. try turning it on by using your controller. just press the ps3 button and if the red light is on then it should come on.

Only Green Lights PS3 dont turn on


Usually the "red light of death" on the PS3 as it is called by some people is due to hard drive (HDD) connection errors. Here are a few things you can try to do to fix it and get your console working again as intended, just check out this short video I made (it's less than 4 minutes and contains useful pictures etc)



For more information and advice on how to fix your console, if that does not do the trick for repairing your system, check out my PS3 red flashing lights repair blog.

Hopefully you get your PS3 working again ASAP!

Ps3 problem


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)
