If power is cutting off, try to see if a different power cable will work and try a different wall socket. If still the same, you console might have been encountering hardware failure. Try to call Sony for repairs as there is actually no quick fix or easy fix for this issue.

I was playing my ps3 then i tried to turn it off but i press the power button and the reset button on my ps3 and now when i turn my game on the ps3 screen frezzes and i cant fix it

Hey, Try unplugging the power from the back of the ps3 system and turning it back on. If this does not solve the problem then go to settings and factory restore the system this will delete any bug or corruption you might have got there. after this just connect back up to the internet and retrieve your psn account. :)

Power went off suddenly and now my light is blinking red what happened?

Make sure the PS3 is turned off. Take out the hard drive from the PS3 and then put it back in. Now turn the system on and see if that takes care of the problem.

If that doesn't work then turn off the PS3. Hold down the power button in the front and turn on the PS3 in the back, it will make a beeping sound, once it does that then let go of the power button on the front and see if you get video, this will reset the PS3 to factory defaults.

If this doesn't work then that means either the power supply is bad or the motherboard is bad.

Play station three will not turn on on then off when power button is pushed.

First, old PS3 or new slim PS3?

The old models have a power switch on the back that must be on. You'll know its on if you have a red light on the front of your console.

To turn the PS3 on, press the power button. A light should turn green, and you're good to go.

To turn off the older PS3's, you must hold the power switch down for several seconds. For the new slim model, just press the button quickly.

When i turn on my ps3, the background pops up but the menu doesnt appear, i tried to connect the controller with the usb port but nothing works. it doesnt do any thing, HELP!!!!!

Turn your PS3 completely off by pressing the power button and then turning off the power switch in the back. Your PS3 should show no lights. Wait about an hour to let the system completely cool down, then turn the power switch on the back on again. Now press the power button and hold it until the system beeps. This will reset a few settings and make sure the system is OK. Hook your PS3 up using the RCA Red White and Yellow cable and turn it on again, and you should be able to be back up and running.

Try a video reset. Make sure you have your video cables plugged in.

2: Hold the front power button till it turns on beeps twice and shots back off, release button.
3: Turn system back on normally.

When i turn my ps3 on it beeps and then the light turns orange then it turns itself off and a game is stuck inside

hold down the power button on the front of the ps3 and then as your doing that, flip the switch on the back and after you hear three beeps, let go of the power button on the front and see if you get video on the tv.

If you don't then next step would be with the machine turned off, take out the hard drive from the machine and put it back into the ps3. Now turn on the machine again and if you don't get the ps3 to turn on with video then try another hard drive in the ps3. If that doesn't work then its either going to be an issue with the power supply or the main board at that point.
