Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Help me.....angry PS3 user....
When I switch on my PS3 (60meg) system it turns on for anything from 1 to 5 seconds and then shuts down.. the red light comes on and I then get 3 beeps ... it can't be the heat element as I haven't used it for 3 weeks and its not in a place where it can overheat...
Try holding the power button on the right
side of the console as you turn the back power switch on.Keep on holding the power button and see if there is a double beep.If this doesn't work,and if you want to try this? Open the HDD cover on the left side of the unit(front facing you).after removing the cover,remove the HDD unit and reconnect.It might be a loose HDD connection.This should only take you 2 mins to do and it won't void your warranty

I am currently working on this problem with a PS3. Can you tell me what lead up the PS3 shutting down, did you remove a cable or anything prior to this? I see you were playing Call of duty 3. If I find the cause tonight, I may be able to fill you in on what the cause is.
