SOURCE: ps3 wont turn on, jus beeps 4 times an red light blinks

This could be any of a number of problems try these solutions one of which may work. If they all fail to work you can contact sony directly at
http://www.uk.playstation.com/Support/PS3
or
http://www.us.playstation.com/support/PS3

  • Remove any obstructions from the vents.
  • Allow at least 4 inches of clearance on all sides for the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Remove the PLAYSTATION 3 from any cabinets so it is out in the open.
  • Shut the PLAYSTATION 3 down completely and let it cool down to room temperature, then try running it again.
  • If the fan cannot be heard before the system shut down, the PLAYSTATION 3 may need to be sent in for service.
  • If there is no airflow from any of the vents, the system may need to be sent in for service
Hope this helps.

Why is my PS3 having problems turning on? It makes the noise then blinks green for a second then turns yellow and then blinks red completely.


I think you may be referring to the famed yellow light of death people are talking about. It's basically the 360's 3 red lights of death, except it's happening to a good console, instead of a piece of ****.

PS 3 Won't turn on blinking light


Are you trying to turn the PS3 on via bluetooth controller? If so, attempted to turn PS3 on from console itself. Sometimes the controller will get out of sync with the system and not allow for turning on remotely.
