Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 when powered up goes to red and you can hear the fan go on and then stops. It has been unplugged for hours and the problem still occurs , we do not believe it's a overheated related problem. What else could it be. We did recently do a update could that have contribute to the problem?

Yeah its overheated because it is just like the 360 it does that all the time ok your going to have to lokk inside the console and feel the palm of your hand touch the x clamp if there is one or if there is a huge thing that is metal then feel if there is heat then it overheated

Ps3 keeps saying restoring database it stops at 40% and after like 1 minuite it goes to 100% then it does the same thing again by saying restoring data base.


Hello
Try a router reboot.
1 power down ps3 and any pcs or laptops.
2 Unplug all cables from router.Including power for 1 min.
3 Plug all cables back in the router and power up.
4 Try ps3 again.

Another solution is some data on ps3 may be corrupt.You would need to do a restore of ps3.
You will losse all info stored in ps3 such as username passwords and accout numbers.
So write it all down if you can.
1Turn off ps3 with switch in back.
2 Turn back on,hold power button until you hear 3 beeps.
3 go through setup until prompted to format.
4 Then format.

This operation can take as long as 1 to 3 hours.Also you will loose all info you put into ps3.

I was playing my PS3 and moved it from my tv upstairs to my tv downstairs. After plugging my PS3 in my tv downstairs, on which it had worked just 1 week previously, my tv picked up no signal from my PS3....


Try this.

Plug your PS3 on either TV. Turn on the backswitch. When the red light in front is on, put your finger on the on/off button in front AND KEEP IT THERE. You will hear some beeps; don't worry about that. Keep your finger on the button until the front power light goes red again. This resets the PS3 video settings. Turn the PS3 on and the TV should pick up the signal.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

Red light blinks and wont stay on when push power button


You can do this fan test.

Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it and you should hear a beep.

The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.

After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and the red light will blink. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.

Tell me how this goes!!

I have a PS3 and it is blinking a red light it beeps three times and then turns off can you help?


It might have overheated, first let it cool down for a day and try again. If it starts working again, get compressed air and clean out the PS3, and possibly get an external fan to stop this problem from occurring again. If the problem pretests, try putting the PS3 in recovery mode by going to the recovery menu. Which can be done by doing the following.
  • Turn off the PS3
  • Hold the power button down; the system should turn on and turn itself off.
  • Once its turned it self back off press the power button intill you hear to beeps
  • After you hear the beeps let go of the power button
  • You will told to plug your controller in and press the PS button
  • Then the recovery menu will pop up
If the PS3 still doesn't turn on it might have bit the dust, and you might have to get a new one. Best of luck!

try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

also the last part of an update is flashing the blu-ray drive so if the blu-ray drive is dead or unplugged it will fail at end
