You could try pressing the power button and holding it down. You will hear the first beep when you press it but hold it down until it beeps a second time it will take 5 to 10 seconds. This will reset the console and it may boot up. If this does not work you can go to www.us.playstation.com and check the user knowledgebase and/or support for a solution.

Ps3 won't turn on just beeps then switches off


Please check if you get a yellow or red light flash and how many times does the ps3 beep before it shuts down.

If you get a Yellow Light, reason below:

If the hard-drive fails on the PS3 you may get a solid yellow led, The yellow light will show if the console is overheating as well, but the console shuts down so you don't it for long.


1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again

2) Check if there's any loose cable.

3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work, then it is suggested to send your PS3 for repairs to Sony Customer Support

Let me know of this helped and please take time to rate my solution.

Wishing you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

It turns off and the red light blinks.


blinkin red light usually means hardware failer the only 2 easy tricks to try that wont void your warrenty is
#1 remove the hard drive and boot it up without it and see if it boots and says no hard drive then shut it down and plug the hard drive back in if it works now then was just a drive error if it goes back to blinkin you have a bad drive.

#2 the fan test that also seems to clear any over heating or other blinkin light problems --- turn the ps3 off for 40 seconds by the switch on the back then hold down the eject button and flip the power switch back on while still holding the eject button and see if that clears it.

When I turn on the PS3 it starts , 3 beeps then red blinking


Its probably an indicator that their is dust build-up, or over heating so it shuts itself off. Clever what sony did because with xbox 360's they don't, they keep running until it probably melts the internal hardware. Well hell I wouldn't know I just read that from some other opinion. But yeah just wait a bit for it to cool down or spray your ps3 with compressed air for dust.
