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. Be sure to rate.

Why wont my ps3 turn on


The problem might have to do with a power thing maybe the power switch i mean maybe the power at your home went down and that causes the PS3 to basically be unusable, what i would recomend is to go and make a diagnostic to your playstation, im not sure where but im sure that if you google it you might find cheap places to see whats wrong with your ps3Good luck!! :D

Red light comes on then when I try to turn it on the machine makes a whirring sound for a second like its trying to come on then it goes to flashing red and wont take a disc.Any ideas?


Hi simonecavana

You could send it to sony it costs $150 to repair,takes 4-6 weeks..

You could try soft restart.
Press the power button on the PS3 you will hear a beep noise straight away but don't let go yet! Still hold the power button for a second beep then let go...
Its sounds like its a overheating issue you could repair yourself and repair guides are available on ebay but not sure if its a very easy job to take on hope this info helps cheers nikki

Please rate my answer.Thanks for using FixYa.

My ps3 wont change to hdmi gone through display settings and wont connect with hd tv says theres error somewhere any ideas how to solve this?


Hi, what you need to do is reset the video display. Do this by following steps :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it, then again 5 seconds later. When you hear this second beep let go of the power button.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start up.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I was playing the bigs 2 when suddenly my ps3 started to shut off.I turn it on again it wont turn back on.The red light just keep on blinking.


Turn the PS3 power off via the switch on the back.

Hold the power button on the front of the machine down for about 15-30 seconds.
Then, without letting go of the power button on the front of the machine, turn the switch on in the back.

If it still doesnt come on then you may have serious problem with PS3 in which contact Sony or the retailer you bought it from for exchange or rapair.

Good luck!

Ps3 doesnt turn on


russwismer:

Here is how you can get your cd out. Try replacing the power adaptor. If that doecsn't work, you'll need to contact Sony or the place you purchased it for the power issue (maybe a unit replacement).

"I just want to let everyone know that I had the same problem. This isn't a fix to make the machine work again. This is a fix that will let you get a disc stuck in the machine out when the ps3 won't power on. Turn the machine power off via the switch in the back. Hold the power button on the front of the machine down for about 15-30 seconds. Then, without letting go of the power button on the front of the machine, turn the switch on in the back. This made my machine power on for about 20 seconds, just long enough for me to get the disc out of machine. I could then take the ps3 back to the retailer I purchased it from.
Just to clue everyone in on a possible cause of this problem, the woman from Sony techical support, the one who told me this trick, said that this is happening only when playing Activision games. For me it was Call of Duty 4. " Let me know what happens. Binary Bob
