My ps3 ver:4.21 suddenly beeps for three times while i am in the middle of a certain game then it will shut down by itself. at first it only happens like randomly but now it happens every time. what should...


It's because your ps3 can not cool itself efficiently.


youtube a video on taking your ps3 apart and give it a good clean out. Or if it is under warranty send it in to sony to get it repaired.

I was playing with my ps3 and the suddenly it shuts down....and when i ever turn my ps3 on again its shuts down automatically.....


I would go to playstation.com and go to customer service, unfortunately it sounds like a serious problem, but they may send you a new ps3 or figure it out.

Hi. My PS3 suddenly started turning off randomly in the middle of play (grrrrrrr) but I know its not overheating since the red light didn't flash and there was beeping. It just died. No joke. Does anyone...


There could be an issue with the power cord or the power outlet.

Try to get a replacement cord and plug the PS3 into another outlet. Turn on the PS3, and let it sit on the menu screen for a while. If it does not shut down it means that it was a power issue.

Your PS3 only frezzes or lags another words when you leave the system on longer then a day or play it longer then a day non-stop i recommend it letting it cool down

lucky you have the ps3 cause xbox 360 aint so forgiving on over-heating

My Playstation 3 will not turn on. I was in the middle of a game and it suddenly turned off. Now I can't get it to turn back on.


Sounds like it overheated. I see this alot. Just let it cool down for a while and then put the console somewhere a little more spacey. So the hot air can escape

HELLO. I was playing on my ps3 When suddenly it just turned it's self off in the middle of playing tekken 5 DR oline. Now when i turn my ps3 3 on it just's beep's and turn's tisefe off.....HELP ME PLEASE....


Your PS3 probably overheated during game play.

No it's stuck in the "off" position.

There's isn't much you can do besides trying to reset the video.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

Hold down the power until you hear the second beep, quickly release.

Hopefully you're one of the lucky ones.

If not you need to contact Sony @ 1-800-345-SONY

for repair.

It's more than likely a motherboard issue.

Best of luck!

Controllers not working all of a sudden


I think you should let it cool down for a day or two, and then see what happens, in a night it could have overheated.

PS3 wont work


How long were you playing it? if you were playing for a couple of hours, then it could of just overheated, in which case the ps3 will shut itself off suddenly to keep from damaging something. It should work after about half an hour, adequate time for it to cool down, if not, then you might of damaged something.
