The beep sound tells you that the mainboard is not detecting RAM. You need to open the system and remove the RAM and place it again after cleaning its legs with a clean tissue paper.This is most probably solve your problem.

If the problem still persists insert the RAM in different slot if another slot is available and check.

If none of the solution solve the problem, replace the RAM.

Starts inconsistently. When pressed the start button flames and the the power button needs to be turned off. It often takes several tries to get it started.


Richard, it could be a unresponsive control to reboot the unit unplug power cord from wall a couple of min's and plug back in. I would ask if you are gently holding start button in until you here a click then release the button. as the start button is depressed it is a time process to enable to processor to think... let us know.

You have either a faulty door latch switch. Or the actual Button is faulty. PRAY it is the door latch switch. Because if it is not you have to replace the entire button assembly which includes the command module and LCD screen....Yikes! That is $400+

My ps3 will not show a picture or have sound I am using an hdmi cable and also used the standard one with same problem


Please try the following steps to solve your problem :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.

This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Hi- we are having a problem with our ps3....it just started overheating....we forgot to open the door...I heard the fan kick in...so we turned off the ps3 to let it cool down....now the ps3 is running...we...


try video reset

when ps3 is in standby mode(red light)
press and hold the power button till you hear a second beep.

standby mode press hold power........"beep"......"beep"..release power button

then 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.

Wont start messages comes up saying correct hard disk not found


your hard drive may be dying. or the file system may be corrupted.

before you get a new hard drive there are some tricks to try.

#1 remove the HDD and boot it up without it in, then turn off and put the HDD back in and boot again.

#2 rebuild the file system in the recovery menu

#3 rebuild the database in the recovery menu


To get to the recovery menu you need to press and hold the power button when the ps3 is in standby mode untill you hear a double beep then release. sometimes the ps3 will go back to standby mode before it does the double beep if it does just release the button and press and hold again real fast and wait for double beep.

here is what mine does

ps3 standby(red light) press hold power...........beep...............beep.........standby again, release hold............beep..................double beep ..release power button.

from the recovery consol you can rebuild the file system and database sometimes when they are corrupted it has same symptoms as a dying HDD.

P.S. rebuilding the file system and database will not lose any of your ps3 data, other options will though like the restore ps3 and format HDD.
if the above tricks dont work try updating the firmware, if your at the current firmware you can re-install it from the recovery menu as well using a usb memory stick or a cd with the firmware on it.

if all that doesnt help it looks like its time to get a new HDD, but at least you can upgrade it to a bigger ps3 now. any sata laptop HDD should work. i think a 160gb HDD is only $50ish.
