    i have the same problem i need help

    I have the exact same issue for 1 week now - game disc is still in machine.

    I was in the middle of a game, PS3 cut off and signal lost. Since then turn on for a sec or two, then beeps off blinking red.



    The power supply going out would not allow the unit any power on I would think, but now sure. The fan starts for that sec then off, I am thinking perhaps the bluray drive somehow is out, shorts out and unit cuts off.

Carthagemike the problem may be that something is bumping the power button or the power cord is not plugged in tightly

Probably the YLOD. Does it go from Green to Yellow to Red? If so it is the YLOD. Here is a creditable guy that works on them.

First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 if off (red light solid) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if this works, otherwise we'll try step 2.

My PS3 will not show the game I am playing on my TV? I can see my different accounts and settings, but when I proceed to play a game. The visuals disappear?!?


Try holding down the power button till it cuts off then hold it down again till it turns on and beeps 3 times. 3rd beep let go and it will turn off and reset to manufacturer settings set for any tv.....

As soon as the p3 cuts on it freezes cant even get to the menue


Blow unit out with air because its probably overheating. Hold the power button down for a FULL 10 seconds! DONT LET GO. This will do a full restart! They failed to let people know that in the manual..

FAN COMING ON WAY TOO EARLY


It is overheating. the chip has an internal temperature sensor.
I bet if you put your hand ontop of it when it does this it is blowing out fairly hot air. Mine is doing it because I took it apart to fix the fan and didnt use enough heatsink paste. if you have lots of ventilation and it cant be overheating then try taking it apart and redoing the heatsinks.
