PS3 turns itself off with three beeps?

  1. My PS3 turns itself off a few seconds after turn I it on and beeps three times, I think it was because I kept it in a enclosed area. So I brought it out, cleaned it, let it cool down for three hours, placed it in an open area. Didn't work. Could some please help me?

Accepted Answer

  1. When the PS3 beeps 3 times when it turns off, it means that it is ending a program which is currently running. That might be a game that wasn't shut down, or the browser, or something else that it's running.

    You can usually avoid the 3 beeps by turning the machine off using the menu rather than the power button. However, the 3 beeps are purely informational - they do not mean that there is anything particularly wrong.

  1. That doesn't really help us, my gf's dads is doing this and wants to know wether or not he is going to have to send it in or if there is a way to fix it.
