This could be any of a number of problems try these solutions one of which may work. If they all fail to work you can contact sony directly at:

  • Remove any obstructions from the vents.
  • Allow at least 4 inches of clearance on all sides for the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Remove the PLAYSTATION 3 from any cabinets so it is out in the open.
  • Shut the PLAYSTATION 3 down completely and let it cool down to room temperature, then try running it again.
  • If the fan cannot be heard before the system shut down, the PLAYSTATION 3 may need to be sent in for service.
  • If there is no airflow from any of the vents, the system may need to be sent in for service
Hope this helps.

Playstation3 will not connected to tv


Please try the following steps to cure your problem

Step 1. Turn the PS3 onto standby mode (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep immediately when you press it and then beep again about 5 seconds later. When you hear the second beep let go of the power button.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start up

This procedure resets the video to standard definition and should hopefully solve your problem

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

KDF-50a12U Powers off then standby light blinks 3 times


Please recheck Lamp Cover and make sure it is fixed in its space securely as 3 times red blink shows lamp cover error.
There is small safety switch in TV cabinet under lamp cover that has to be pushed by lamp cover if it is fixed in its position properly. That switch is not being pressed by lamp cover and causing this error.
Thanks.

The red power switch keeps flashing,, no picetc


The Red light is due to the HDD (hard drive).


There is one of 2 problems:
1. The connection is loose or
2. The HDD is just bad.


This was an issue that has been discussed over in the Playstation forums and it seems that re-seating
(removing & reinstalling) the HDD has solved the problem for many but some people have just
received bad hard drives period.


If you reinstall the HDD & it still beeps 3 times & gives you the red light, then you will have to replace
your HDD.

T.v on standby, red light flashing 3 times, wont switch on


Shutdown with a 3x blink pattern occurs if the 12v from the power supply (GF1 or GF2 depending on model) is lost at CN6153/pin 6 to the AU Board Q1224 to Sub Micro IC1205. The suspects, in order of likelihood, are (1) Power supply and (2) the AU board.
