It says improper shut down then freezes up and turns itself off


First make sure your PS3 is powered off and unplugged.
1. Plug your PS3 in.
2. Now hold you power button on the ps3 down, you will hear one beep, followed by another 5 seconds later, and a third one 5 seconds after that. After that the PS3 power light will turn red. You can now let go of the button.
3. Hold your power button down again, you will hear one beap, followed by another beep 5 seconds later, and then you will hear a double beep 5 seconds after that. After you hear the double beep, let go of the power button.
4. Now some words will come up on the screen saying to connect your controller.
5. You must connect your USB cord to your ps3 and connect the other end to your controller.
6. A selection menu will now appear.
7. Select the option "3. Restore File System" and press X.
8. Now follow the on screen dialog and once the restoration has completed your PS3 will be back to normal.

Please note: Following this guide will leave your Game Data and Save Files intact, you do not need to worry about this process deleting your Save Files or any other data. Your ps3 will be just like it was before it messed up.

My ps3 isn playing ps2 games but not ps3 or dvd's what is wrong what my ps3


Welcome to Fixya

Try the troubleshooting procedure below:

Step 1 - Turn off the playstation 3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till the power light is red.

Step 2 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the playstation 3 is powering on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (power light is red).

Step 3 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the playstation 3 to power on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At this point release the power button. if you succeeded in activating the safe mode, you will see a message on the screen saying 'connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button.

Step 4 - Perform the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one option works, do not continue onto the other options.

Restore Default Settings
Restore File System
Rebuild Data Base
Restore PS3 System etc...

It doesnt work


hello Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

I turn on my ps3 it turns off straight away and the red light flashes and its not overheated....????


1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

If that doesn't work then that means either the power supply is bad or the mainboard is bad.
