Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 wont switch on! It makes a beeping sound and then the red light keeps on blinking but nothing else! Can someone help me please?
I sure wish I could because I have the same problem. I purchased an almost new ps3 from a seller on ebay and all I get is standby then when I try to power it up, I get the blinking red light. Sony wont help because I purchased it from ebay so I am not the original owner. The seller wont help, he swears it didnt have that problem when he shipped it. Ive tried removing the hd, holding down the power button, unplugging it in the back, and nothing helps.

check your console and making sure those fans are not blocked off. If you notice a
lot of dust on the console, clean it off right away. Once you fix the blinking
red light of your ps3 and your console is working again, you will want to keep
the vents clean and unobstructed.find the hard drive on the side of your console and remove it. Wait a
few seconds and replace it. In some cases this may fix PS3 red light. If you
still see the blinking red light, there is a chance you have more substantial
damage inside your unit.Then unplug the console from the wall for about half an hour and then plug it
back in. This doesn't always work, but some people have had success with
problems other than overheating.
