three beeps and red flashing light
My playstation turns on for about 2 seconds, then beeps 3 times and I get a red flashing light.
Does anyone have any ides on how to fix this.
The red flashing light and the console down due to excessive heat. I believe what you are starting to see is the classic symptom of a very near YLOD. I would either try and repair it myself, using the guides from here Yellow Light of Deathの修理 and this part or get someone to do it for you. Good Luck
You are getting the red blinking lights on the PS3 because it is over heating. You might still be able to prevent more damage from occurring if you take apart the PS3 and clean out the fan. Usually dust clumps get stuck in there. If you keep using the PS3 like this, you will damage the board permanently!
@kenpery Actually your assessment is not entirely correct.
I performed this procedure for a friend on a PS3 that had this exact same problem. When I was done, their PS3 lasted them for more than a year, so definitely more than just a few days. It can work, just may not work in all cases, or models.
I have been trying to play uncharted 2 for last week now,it started off ok but then all of a sudden it started turning off after starting the game up (time varies sometimes a couple of minutes into gameplay other times about 10 minutes) but whenever I play uncharted 1 or borderlands 1 or 2 it's fine doesn't turn off
For ages now my ps3 has done the updates in the morning but always beeps 3 times and turns off leaving the red light flashing
I recently (about two minutes ago) found out that Lego Marvel's Avengers heats up my ps3 and makes it shut off, but Minecraft: PlayStation®3 Edition can keep my ps3 running for over 2 hours idling! Guess what game I’m never playing again.
I bought a used PS3 that arrived DOA with this problem. I did a lot of research on how to fix it, but my technical skills aren't that great so there wasn't anything I wanted to try. Then I swear to god I ran across a fix that so far has worked for me and you don't even have to disassemble the machine. Put the
PS3 in its box (or another) with the rear vents facing out. You can also just wrap it in a towel. I wound up doing both as all I had was a larger box. Use a hair dryer running it back and forth across the length of the vents for 5 minutes. Let it rest for a minute, do another 5 minutes, let it rest a minute, then do a final 5 minutes and set the unit someplace relatively cool and let it cool down for about an hour.
I plugged it in and it worked. There are several videos on YouTube that use this method. That's where I originally saw this fix.
Will it last? Don't know, but so far I have had no problems.
