Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

If the main power switch is turned on the red standby light illuminates, when powering up the red light becomes green and the unit beeps once, then shuts down immediately. if you cycle the main power switch it will repeat this again. This began then went away for a few weeks and came back.

There are many possibilities that could have caused this.

1. Your PS3 might have had been hit by humidity.
2. Some software or firmware updates might have not been installed correctly.
And many more.

What i suggest is that you send it to Sony for repairs.

I run my finger over the power button but it wont turn on.


You don't need to run your finger across it, with the red light illuminated, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds you should hear a beep then a blue/green light should illuminated. If you see no light ensue the MAIN power switch on the back is switched on.

I have a Graco baby monitor, it started making a noise for the last 2 days, could it be a battery problem (even with power connected)? The monitor is about 1.5 years old.


Annoying! happens to us too frequently, but this works. We ended up buying a new one and returning our broken one after owning for three months From Manual:) 5. Turn on the Nursery Unit using the On/Off switch on the side. The green power light should come on. 6. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit will lock on to the Nursery Unit and the top four (4) green LEDs will shut off. A second later, you will hear a series of beeps and the connection LED should change from red to green. Your monitor is now ready for use. 7. If the top four (4) LEDs do not shut off, power off the Parent Unit and the Nursery Unit and repeat steps 4 and 5 above. 8. If the connection LED on the Parent Unit does not change from red to green and the unit begins to beep, press the channel "ch" button on the Nursery Unit. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit should lock in on the Nursery Unit and the connection LED should change from red to green. You may hear an audible beep during this process. 9. If the Parent Unit is still unable to lock in on the Nursery Unit (connection LED will be red and the unit will beep), power down both the Parent Unit and the Nursery Unit. Wait for 10 seconds then hold the volume down button on the Parent Unit while pressing the On/Off switch. When the unit powers up, you will hear a single beep and all of the soundlights will illuminate. Release the volume down switch and within 2 seconds you will hear two beeps and all of the Sound Light LEDs will stay lit and the bottom LED will be red. 10. Repeat steps 5

My ps3 won't load the discs...


Hi, if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...
hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

Thanks and take

NEC PLASMA SYNC 42MP2 STANDY BY MODE?


According to the manual for "POWER/STANDBY indicator is blinking in red":
  • "The temperature inside the main unit has become too high and has activated the protector."
  • "Promptly switch off the power of the main unit ans wait until the internal temperature drops."
  • "If the monitor becomes too hot, the overheat protector will be activated and the monitor will be turned off. If this happens, turn off the power to the monitor and unplug the power cord. If the room where the monitor is installed is particularly hot, move the monitor to a cooler location and wait for the monitor to cool for 60 minutes."
