My PS3 Won't Turn Off!

[ Edited ]
8 Replies 13,954 Views edited 02-07-2009
Been on a game, went on XMB, tried replying to a message butt it crashed so I pressed quite game and it just went black so I pressed the off button on the PS3 and it just made the 3 beep noise but did not turn off. I then pressed it again and it just made the 3 beeps again but still did not turn off, its still on now with a black screen. I don't want to turn it off at the back just in case it breaks the PS3. What does anyone suggest I do?

Sadly i think you might have to turn it off? butbefore doing so try and eject the game.

Yeah, holding the power button down for a while should shut it down.

Recommend that you perform a 'Safe Mode' boot then select 'Restore File System'.

 

Should fix any HDD corruption if there is any.

 

Find out how to boot up into Safe Mode at Help&Supoort/FAQs

no buttons on the console work either????

 

That sounds like the same problem I had with my first slim, I had to unplug the cable to turn it off.

It was 7 months old and fairly well looked after. I tried changing hard drives, but nothing worked.

 

In the end I had to take it back to morrisons for a replacement, which they did,  no questions asked. I'm now on my second slim, but when this one dies, I'm just going back to my ps2, I've had that since launch with NO problems whatsoever.
