First you need to check some things:

1. Check that ALL the cables are properly plugged in. Maybe someone accidentally took the PS3 out of it's socket.
2. If all the cables are OK leave the console for about an hour to cool off. Maybe it's overheating
3. If your console turns back on but then after some play time turns off again you have an overheating problem and you need to send it to Sony so they can fix it. Make sure you have a warranty otherwise it's going to cost you lots.
4. If it doesn't turn on at all you definitely need to send it to Sony so they can fix it.

I would very much like to know if your console DOES turn on but has RED or YELLOW lights bleeping. That would help me.

I would like to know if this has helped you too!

I have owned a PS3 for 4 years now. I have had no real problems with the system itself. Today, 3/18/10, I was playing NCAA March Madness. The system shutdown in the middle of the game! There was no power...


It sounds like the power supply might be damaged.
Return it to Sony. If it is still under warranty, the repair will be free; otherwise, Sony will charge a flat $150 fee.

Hey,my ps3 will turn on load up nd every fing normal but wont stay on no longer than 10mins it turns its self off nd the red light just flashes.


It sounds like it might be a overheating issue. Be sure the PS3 is in a well-ventilated area. That means that there is plenty of air flowing around the unit. Be sure if you have it in an enclosed cabinet, air from outside the cabinet come come in and air inside the cabinet to flow out, or else all you will be doing is recirculating warm air, which will in turn get hotter and hotter. Try having a little desk fan blowing on the unit as well and see if that will help.

Good luck.

Ps3 wont load games up


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

Game stuck in my PS3


Well my system just recently died while I was playing GTA and yeah now my game is stuck as well cause when I turn the system on it stays on for like 3 seconds before turning off and blinks the red light at me, I am not sure if there is a way to get the game out maybe if you open up the PS3 but make sure you don't do that if you still have warranty on the system or it will be void. I am sending my PS3 into Sony and the guy said just make a note that the game is stuck in the system and they will take care of it and fix my system.
