You can try to reset the console:

While the PS3 is off (solid red light) Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

If you're unable to perform the above then you've got either:

RLOD (Red Light of Death - Caused by the unit overheating)
YLOD (Yellow Light of Death - Caused by GPU / CPU )

There are some DIY methods to fix the problem but as someone who fixes PS3's on a daily basis I would HIGHLY recommend you sending your unit into SONY direct for repair.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

Sewwing mashine sudenlly just turned off


if you have tried unplugging and letting it set for a few mins and plugging it back in... and still have no joy... it is likely that a short or something blew a fuse. I would take the machine in and have them do a check, clean and adjust while they did the repair.

I bought my ps3 in london and now im in Paris the ps3 turns on but wont turn off and it doesn't show up on the screen and the controller keeps on beeping none stop


Easy to solve, the way to turn off the ps3 is simply hold the power button until you hear one beep, then let go. That way you wont have to go to the menu, and your controller beeps because it is low on battery try using a charger that connects to the ps3

I took my PS3 to a friends and we used an HDMI cable to hook it to his tv and when he brought it back to my house and now it wont work, i use the red ywllow and white audio/video plugs. why wont my...


hey, when you used the HDMI cable at your friends place, the PS3 display got set to 1080p. to bring it back to standard definition (red, white, yellow wire), follow these steps.

turn off you TV and PS3

turn on your TV

With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings.

Now you should be able to see your PS3 menu on the TV.

Happy to help :)

PS3 wont stay on


Your PS3 may be overheating. Check the exhaust of the ps3 where the hot air comes out for any excessive dust. If you have a 60GB PS3, you can blow them out by turning off the PS3 by the back switch and then turning it on using the back switch with you finger on the eject button. The PS3 should beep 3 times and your fans should go at full tilt for about 30sec to 1 min.
