Sounds like you have either played your playstation to much and it has overheated or your hard drive is messed up, easy way of checking, turn your ps3 on by holding the button on the ps3 but dont take your finger off, it should beep once, then beep again, then it should do a double beep, if this works a menu should come up, do number two, unfortunately all saved data KAPUT, gone, but the good thing is that your ps3 will be fine and working again in no time free of cost my freind, hope this helped

PS3 turns on then immediately beeps and turns off with a blinking red light.


Hello there stock380

If you have the red blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.

The light is a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the RLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

My ps3 turned off during a game, when you try and turn it on the light on the power switch goes green for about 3 seconds then switches off again and has a red flashing light


Your PS3's problems are actually being caused by a connection error between the hard drive and motherboard. Without a correctly working hard drive connection your PS3 is unable to function and goes into shutdown mode, with the flashing red light warning.

So in order to fix the blinking red light on your PS3 you will need to repair the connection between the HDD and the motherboard.There is actually a rather simple way that you can do this yourself; while your PS3 console is switched off, locate the hard drive enclosure on the end of your console. Remove the plastic cover plate, then using a screwdriver unscrew the hard drive itself from its socket. Carefully remove it completely, then put it back in again. Tighten the holding screw, then restart your PS3

When i turn my ps3 on everything works but in 2-5 minutes it will beep ,the screen will turn off and the blue light turns red and blinks for a while..what do i do?



If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...

PlayStation 3 red light problem, but in most cases it comes down to the system overheating. The more it overheats the more damage is created internally to the motherboard and other functioning components...

Uncharted 2 only game that shuts down my 60 GB PS3


It seemed as if you were getting the symptoms of the "blinking red light of doom" but luckily you didn't.And VERY VERY good thinking on the back up (i never thought of it and i almost lost all my data).
I hope your new hdd runs a 5400rpm and NOT 7200rpm.
Facts:
1. A 7200rpm hdd will make system over-heat.

2. System run hotter (and in most cases of red light of doom) are HIGH graphics games such as MW2 & UNCHARTED 2.

3. Systems will last longer and cooler with an external fan that runs off its on power from a power outlet(not run off the power of the ps3!!!!)

I hope I have helped and please feel free to ask any questions GOOO UNCHARTED 2!!

Red Blinking Light


This is a general warning code. Try switching off the power in the back of the system, waiting a minute, then switching it back on. Try turning the system back on and see if it happens again.
