  • Anonymous Dec 25, 2007

    I turn off on the back, unplug power cord, wait 5-10 min. Plug cord back in, turn on switch. Stanby light comes on. Just touching the button on the front it goes green, beeps and shuts down.



    No lights, no nothing, just shuts down. Switch doesn't even work until turning off again, unpluggin waiting 5-10 min, yada, yada, yada.



    VERY FRUSTRATING.....

I had the same problem listen what you have to do is call Sony and if you are still under the warranty Sony will send you a prepaid shipping box with all required instructions on how to mail your defective PS3. They will more than likely replace it. The problem you have is the RED BLINKING LIGHT OF DEATH!!
You can get Sony's # on your PS3 box or web page. There is nothing you can do to fix it.

Im having the same problem. However, what did work for me in the past is as follows:
1) turn your PS3 off (red light showing on console)
2) press and hold the power button 5-10 secs until it cycles all the way back to red again
3) This action resets the video display to its default and had worked for me in the past
4) turn it on as normal

However, Ive attempted this now and I can get the AV cables working but not my HDMI. Just suddenly stopped working after a month.

Hello, My PS3 just keeps turning itself off. I have tried to reset the system but it keeps flashing red and yellow lights and then turns itself off into standby mode? HELP......


Try removing the game inside your disc. then try removing other external hardware and slots and try again. If problem persists it might be a system problem. Please go to the shp from where you bought it and ask them for a replacement.

Alright mate, Had the same problem as you and my ps3 is up and running now. What you need to do are the following steps:
1. turn on the ps3 so it is in stanby i.e. the red light is on. 2. push and hold down on the red button for as long as it takes to turn the ps3 back off on to standby, you should hear a beep. 3. when it goes back to standby do the same thing again, and this time you will hear one beep (when you pressed it) and two more beeps and it will go back to standby 4. when it is back in standby again, push and hold down the button again, you'll hear the first beep, then three more beeps, and it will go back to standby. 5. do the same again, however when it turns on this time, if done correctly, it should say connect the controller using a usb cable. do this and turn it on. 6. Go through everything it says on screen, 6 options should eventually appear, for me, option 4 did the trick, but i heard option 3 works too, as the other ones do too i presume. 7. the final part is that it will ask you to restore the hard drive etc... just keep pressing the ok button.
if all fails, then phone this number (sony) 0818 365 065. glad to help. let me know.... David.

My playstation turns on and everything, but once i plug it in to any kind of television there is no picture or sound


Heres one solution that I found. If your ps3 turns on but does not boot up just stays a black screen most likely the hard drive got corrupted. So unfortunately you will lose all your saves. But to save the system when you power on the ps3 hold the button down its should beep once keep holding it and it should turn red in standby mode. Keep holding the power button down though. It should turn green again keep holding it should beep then double beep this time instead of going into standby. Let go now and some options will come onto the screen. You will need to plug in your ps3 controller and 6 options should come up. Reformat PS3 worked for me but I lost all my saves. Good luck!

Not loading up to main screen


ok go to youtube and type" PS3 REPAIR/FIX" basicly what you do is put the ps3 on standby (the red light on) and then turn the main power off (the back switch) then hold the I/O button in the front (the on switch you use to put on standby) just hold it until it will go to standby then hold the I/O button again (the standby button) and then keep holding it until you hear one beep, then wait for two quick beeps. Then there should be a menu and select "Restore Defualt Settings". If it dosent work CONTACT SONY!

Ps3 powers on no video.


Hey jlbrown55 , have you tried resetting the default settings? If not you just have the PS3 in standby (with red light on) and hold power till the systems turns on then 10 sec after and it will beep. Let it go right then and it should reset the defaults in about anouther 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, call Sony. It seems to be a growing problem. Good luck.
