Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Beeping, red light and...

Hi my friend!!

this is my problem. I need your help please.

I bought a ps3 when they first came out. I play for a little bit then the ps3 would beep three times and the red light came on and went to blue screen. We would cut it off try again and it would cut off before we got back to where we were the first time. Actually, we had had FIFA 08 and it did the samething. We keep reading about the heat component thing. I am thinking is it possible the games generate more heat than others and its cutting off? Is anyone else having this problem or know why it is doing it.

Thanks!!

Playing online in the middle of a game, and the system just shut off, and the power light began blinking red. Tried to restart, and the system either freezes, or shuts down again.


Freezing when playing games means hardware errors. Many reasons cause such errors. But don't waste money to find someone to fix it yet! It may be a minor issue that you can be fixed by yourself.

PS3 shuts off right as its turned on


Hi, this is heat related and, this issue may have damaged your power supply board. if the red lights continue to flash after you have unplugged this unit for 5 minutes, this will confirm power board failure and, you will need to replace this circuit board.

You can purchase a replacement power supply unit at this link below and i also advise to purchase a cooling adapter for your system as well. this will prevent this form happening again in the future.
