Playstation 3 turns its self off after 20 minutes


PS 3 is getting heated up. Keep it in a place where there is free flow of air. Make sure that the vents are not covered up. When PS 3 gets heated up, it has built in mechanism which shuts it down. When it cools down it works again.

My playstation 3 : everytime i turn it on it goes green then back to red and wont turn on? When it was working it just froze so i turned it off and since then it hasnt turned back on


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 .

I turn my PS3 on, and it stays on for approximately 5 minutes, then without warning, it shuts off. Why is it doing that? Could it be a virus?


Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

My playstation just shut off an the red light flashes


do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
2) Check if there's any loose cable.
3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work
Send your playstation back to Sony

Controllers will not turn on ps3 and it shuts off


I'd back up my game saves, if possible, and then perform a full system restore.

Let me know if you're able to do that, if not I'll suggest another method for fixing.

On my playstation 3 the green light stays on for about 4 seconds then beeps three times and shuts off any answers


I am not sure why but hopefully this will work... Shut down the PS3 make sure it's shut down... Unplug the main power cord and after a few minutes replugged it and turn it on! I hope it works! I usally have crazy problems like that but as soon I reset it and I forget the problem!
