  • okelleyt Oct 17, 2008

    The PS3 was on for about 3 hours. We switched from Rock Band to Guitar Hero, turing off the system in between. 3 songs were played, and the system just stopped working - no beeps or warning. I have tried a few different power outlets. There has been no trauma to the system or the cord.

    Was playing my PS3, it suddenly shut off, I turned it back on, played for a few more minutes. It shut off again and now won't come back on at all. No lights..nothing. Game stuck inside. I borrowed a powercord to test if that was the problem, no luck.

Hi. My PS3 suddenly started turning off randomly in the middle of play (grrrrrrr) but I know its not overheating since the red light didn't flash and there was beeping. It just died. No joke. Does anyone...

There could be an issue with the power cord or the power outlet.

Try to get a replacement cord and plug the PS3 into another outlet. Turn on the PS3, and let it sit on the menu screen for a while. If it does not shut down it means that it was a power issue.

PS3 shut down, wont start. HELP!

The power supply module has likely failed. Sorry, you will need a service shop. Attempting to FORCE out the disc can cause EXPENSIVE repairs.

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.
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.
