Try this hold down the power button until 3 beeps then the system should be off.then hold it down for 2 beeps and see if a screen pops up.if it doesn't then your system is bad.

Ps3 shut down itslef as soom it is on


If you've been playing it a long time it's probably overheated. Give it a few minutes to cool down. There may also be a problem with the fan that is causing it to shut off (which it is programmed to do, lest the system burst into flames after several hours of gameplay).

Was playing a game, and the system shut itself off. When I turn it on, it beeps a few times and shuts off again. Help?


Unplug all cables on your PS3 and disc storage for 2 to 3 minutes.
If this does not solve the problem find a local electronic repair shop or service center near you and let them take a look to determine what is the actual problem..

The ps3 could be overheating if the fan is not working, make sure the fan is clear of any obstructions and dust, the fan will need changing if it doesnt fire up.

  • 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.
