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 修复死亡黄灯 and this part or get someone to do it for you. Good Luck
@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.
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!
Okay so I have this issue with a jailbroken PS3 fat model CECHK01 running EvilNat 4.89. This is NOT just a overheating issue (and likely isn't a overheating issue at all). So I have been repairing these systems for over a year now and I have learned a lot in the process. I have performed multiple successful delidding procedures (over 100 at this point by crafting my own tools), reflowing, reballing, testing capacitors, replacing NEC Tokins, case modding etc. The system can be off for days at a time, you press the power button, system starts to boot for about 1 second then cuts off, three beeps, then flashes red light. Interesting aspect is that for me if I hit the power button again to stop the red flashing light and immediately hit the power button again, the system boots up just fine and continues running for however long I want it to run. Temperatures are well under control with this system. CPU and GPU temperatures hold together in close proximity of 55 degrees Celsius and 56 degrees Celsius respectively with 33% fan utilization running the Last of Us for over 45 minutes in the downtown scene (one of the heaviest load scenes by any game on the PS3). I have even gone as far as replacing the entire motherboard and blu-ray drive, logic board, ribbon cables, and wifi board (so basically a whole new system). The only thing that has remained consistent is the power supply unit. As you can tell I am performing a process of component elimination to narrow down the exact problem. I am moving on to the PSU next. I saw an interesting video of an engineer disassembling the power supply unit and using a flat head screw driver to adjust the capacitors/transistors (I believe I can't remember the exact nomenclature) by tuning them and changing their direction by about 1/4 of a turn or 90 degrees and that seemed to resolve the entire issue. I truly do not believe this is an overheating issue and everyone seems to want to jump to that conclusion for some reason and then they recommend potentially damaging procedures such as delidding, attempted reflowing, reballing, NEC Tokin replacement, etc. Now I will say this, from my experience if you have been playing the system for 15-20 minutes or longer and the system shuts down and flashes the red light, then yes, most likely that is a overheating issue and you need to verify your CPU/GPU temperatures. However, if the system has been off for over an hour and you try turning it on and it immediately does the triple beep and flashing red light I believe it has something to do with the startup process and possibly a failure of the PSU to deliver adequate power initially to start the CPU, hard drive and blu-ray drive all in one go. If anyone else has any other ideas or fixes I would be overjoyed to learn about them and receive the professional feedback/criticism in order to enhance my own learning. Hopefully this will give you an idea of where to head next and save you and others some time, money, and frustration.
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.
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.
Ive changed thermal paste tried different hard drives and resetting techniques also heated up the thermal pads and cooled before adding the paste, the friggin thing you plug it in switch the power on and without even pressing the power button it beeps 3 times and flashes red eject doesnt work while this is happening all i can think of is maybe a faulty disc drive but does anyone else have an idea?
Coba ganti pasta pada cangkang rsx dan cellbe lalu tambahkan 4buah kapasitor tantalum 470/6V disebelah nec tokin, ini bekerja pada konsol saya dan saya juga mengalami hal yang sama (YLOD) pada ps3 fat saya (cechh07). tapi saya tidak yakin bisa bertahan sampai berapa lama, dan yang jelas konsol saya sekarang bisa digunakan lagi walaupun terkadang akan ylod lagi saat pertama kali dihidupkan, dan setelah berhasil nyala akan normal dan bisa dimainkan bahkan suhu cpu dan rsx menunjukkan panas hingga kisaran 75°C itu tidak akan mematikan konsol saya.
