It sounds like it might have overheated, first let it cool down for a little while then and try again. If it starts working again, get compressed air and clean out the PS3, and possibly get an external fan to stop so this doesn't happen again. If the PS3 still does the 3 beeps try putting the PS3 in recovery mode by going to the recovery menu. Which can be done by doing the following.

  • Turn off the PS3
  • Hold the power button down; the system should turn on and turn itself off.
  • Once its turned it self back off press the power button intill you hear to beeps
  • After you hear the beeps let go of the power button
  • You will told to plug your controller in and press the PS button
  • Then the recovery menu will pop up
If the PS3 still doesn't turn on it be dead and need to be replaced. Best of luck!

Beeps 3 times; shuts down;lens won't retract


I had a Polaroid i531 that would beep 3 times then shut down & the lens wouldn't retract.

I fixed it like this:
  1. Inspect the lens from all angles and you'll see that the lens assembly is out of sync. (My was looking upward ever so slightly)
  2. Using gentle finger pressure, press in the opposite direction of the abnormal lens direction
  3. I heard a snap, then I powered the camera on.
  4. Camera now works.

Takes 3 times to start washer


I would check the drain pump, something maybe stuck in side and causing it to shut down. Or the lid may not be locking.

Is there a display with a fault code, or flashing lights on the counsel?

The camera beeps 3 times on startup and then shuts down...


You have dirt trapped in the lense mechanism. use compressed air can to blow it out then turn camera off ans slap it into the palm of your hand a few times and turn on again to test if it has cleared. This is not a joke it actually works. Lots of these types of cameras suffer from this problem and I have fixed them using this method. Passed on By a Canon Tech!!! It certainly worked for mine . Be persistent some work immediately others take several goes of blowing and slapping face down
