Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 Not turning back on.

Well was in the process of playing a game. Then it suddenly shuts off. And now when I tried to turn it on. It just beeps and the red light flashes. Is it because its over heated or is there something worse. Also I'm going to have to send it in to get it fixed? How long would that take?

This is the yellow light of death. This happens when the system overheats causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge. The system needs to be professionally reflowed.

Fully backwards compatible ps3 shuts down with 3 beeps and flashing red light when trying to play ps1 games


Hmmmnnn, consider the reason they pulled the rev compatible system off the market. It is possible to be getting the symptoms of YLOD without it actually happening with some games. The older games spun faster(sometimes) and made the system work harder. It could be heating up and shutting down right at the point of failure. I've seen 2 different revers compatible systems YLOD the same way. Good luck.

Was playing a ps2 game when the PS3 suddenly shut off. When I try to turn it back on by the back, the light turns red. As soon as i press the power button it beeps once, I hear a whir, then it powers off....

if so you have the TERRIBLE BLINKING LIGHT OFF DEATH
you have a few options:
1.call sony, send in your ps3, recieve a refurbished ps3 for $150
2.find a local to fix it for much cheaper
3.buy a new console

Downloaded update, next day I got the blinking red light


Mate if you turn your PS3 off when the hard drive is still operating or the power shuts of while playing a game and the PS3 is collecting or writing data to your hard drive, it will most definitely corrupt or even destroy your hard drive it is very common in PC's to.
Hint:
1. Do not shut down your PS3 while it is saving a game or collecting info from the hard drive. Rather quit the game then press your off key with one quick touch and let go of it, it will shut down when it is ready or hold down on the remote's PS button and select switch off system on screen.
2. If you live in a area where the power shuts off for no reason please please get your self a computer UPS(UN-INTERRUPTED POWER SUPPLY).
3. If you replace the hard drive make sure you buy a good quality hard drive like a Western Digital or Seagate.

HELLO. I was playing on my ps3 When suddenly it just turned it's self off in the middle of playing tekken 5 DR oline. Now when i turn my ps3 3 on it just's beep's and turn's tisefe off.....HELP ME PLEASE....


Your PS3 probably overheated during game play.

No it's stuck in the "off" position.

There's isn't much you can do besides trying to reset the video.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

Hold down the power until you hear the second beep, quickly release.

Hopefully you're one of the lucky ones.

If not you need to contact Sony @ 1-800-345-SONY

for repair.

It's more than likely a motherboard issue.

Best of luck!

PS3 wont work


How long were you playing it? if you were playing for a couple of hours, then it could of just overheated, in which case the ps3 will shut itself off suddenly to keep from damaging something. It should work after about half an hour, adequate time for it to cool down, if not, then you might of damaged something.
