System can't fix restart problem itself


Found this on the GT website:

  1. When Gran Turismo 6 is launched while connected to PSN, a message will appear on screen informing the users that "the latest update data for this software has been found (Version 1.03)".
  2. Once accepted (by pressing the X button while selecting [OK]), a "Please wait..." message will be displayed. After a few seconds, the PlayStation 3 system will emit 3 acoustic signals and restarts automatically.
  3. At this point, some users may receive a message stating that the system was not shut down correctly last time. The system will ask then to perform a system file check and then the reboot is completed.
  4. Users will be prompted again to download Update 1.03, whether they received the message in step 3 or not.
To avoid this issue:

  1. To avoid this issue, please accept to download the Update by selecting [OK] within 2 seconds of its appearance on screen when prompted. This will update the game properly.
  2. If you wait longer than 2 seconds, please decline the Update by pressing the Circle button when the message in step 1 is displayed, then select [Back] in the subsequent "Sign-In to PSN" screen. The game will start, quit the game using the PS button while in the [My Home] screen and follow the procedure described above.
This requires fast fingers and is a "work around" solution only but should fix your issue!

When it starts it beeps 3 times and then shuts down


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!

I have a problem with my sony play station I had this problem for months When I turned on the ps2 it shuts down itself,I can reset it and i start playing but then again it turns off itself,Sometimes i...


The PS2 shuts off automatically when acquiring heat, it might have been cutting off due to excessive heat or overheating. If the system does not power on, well the internal power supply unit might have gone busted and generally a hardware failure causing this issue.

Hello, My PS3 just keeps turning itself off. I have tried to reset the system but it keeps flashing red and yellow lights and then turns itself off into standby mode? HELP......


Try removing the game inside your disc. then try removing other external hardware and slots and try again. If problem persists it might be a system problem. Please go to the shp from where you bought it and ask them for a replacement.

When i turn on my ps3, it tells me it wasn't shut down properly and must turn it off again or else it shut downs by itself.


Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

sounds like the start of the blinking green light and the tray wont eject, if you decided to get into it try pulling out both leads to the disc drive check them for damage make them nice an straight blow sockets where they sit and replace them true.if they are damaged replace them, NOTE opening your 360 voids the warranty

Controllers shutting themselves off


probably system itself. VERY HIGHLY unlikely that its every single control that has malfuntioned.

I believe there might be a problem with the power connector where you first turn on your system in the back. There is either a shortage or something inside has fried. Best thing to do is to have a gaming tech take a look at your system.
