If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...... u just fix this by using ps3 repair guide....

System shut down by itself during a game, and now when i go to turn it on it keeps shutting itself off


There are many reasons cause PS3 shutdown itself. Your PS3 hardware need some kind of fixes. Send back to Sony is expensive. You better repair by yourself. I suggest you bought this guide, you can learn how to trouble shooting and disassembly your console and fix it at last. Good luck!

While on a games my ps3 switched off itself and when i restart it, the light goes green and then starts to flash orange then red and will not turn on? any ideas.


Try getting a can of compressed air and blow out all the vents, then use a vacuum and **** out as much dust as you can. Make sure you keep your ps3 in a well ventilated area and keep it maintained otherwise you will be shipping your ps3 off to sony for reapirs which is not cheap ( $180) if you are not under warranty.

i guess it's a problem with your Hard Disk . please try the following :
  • re-updating your system by an USB device (download the update from sony ps3 website)
  • reinstalling all game data files
  • restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files such as game saves !!)

Ps3 keeps switching off


It's overheating. That's why it works longer the first time and you have to wait a few minutes for it to cool. Try using some compressed air and cleaning the vents out below. If that doesn't work then you'll have to remove and replace the thermal compound on the GPU and CPU.
