It usually happens if the hard drive was being accessed at the time. Shouldn't be anything to worry about, it's done it to us on a number of occasions but nothing is wrong with it. :)

Settle down there. :)

 

I misunderstood then, I thought you meant while shutting it down yourself.

 

If it's doing it by itself, it sounds like it's overheating. You didn't see a yellow light, did you?

No, no yellow light... I played about 2 hours and happened that.

After turning off, the red light remained blinking.

I have it on an open area. It has plenty of space and i bought it on the 28th of september.

If it flashed yellow i didn't saw. But its possible i think... anyways.. i did that thing of restoring system files of the hard drive because some days ago i had the idea of copying 8000+ music files to the hard drive and then deleted them and now i have 20gb of music on it. The system files can become corrupt or something with the use of the hdd...

I get the 3 beeps a lot with both of my Playstations. They have done since I brought them. I think it might be something to do with the hard drive that's still loading up... I'm not too sure.

 

EDIT: It also normally gives me 3 beeps when my PS3's crash.

It also indicates a software crash. Fallout 3 should offer a trophy when it hits 1000 beeps.

its happends when a game doesnt excute a proper shut down . the same way when you turn off your computer windows takes its time to shut down the programs properly . some times the games through a wobbly and the ps just forces a shutdown

Yah, had this on my 60GB. It ended up being a problem because it would happen within seconds of starting the machine... no YLOD though. It was a problem with the switch and cost me £40 for local repair.

Sorry to bump an oldish topic but I've had this problem twice now, both while playing Uncharted 2 online my PS3 just shut itself of with the beeps and flashing red light but afterwards when i turn it back on its OK. I've got a 60GB bought in October 2007 which got the YLOD last July, it was returned with the fans slightly noisy to keep it cooler but they get to level 3 within 30mins of playing. Can anyone suggest anything as it shutting itself down only happens when playing Uncharted 2 online after 10 minutes (never had a problem like this before this last week)

This happened while I was playing Call of Duty: MW2. The game froze for a second or two then the entire ystem shut down after beeping three times. I am unable to turn my system back on as when I do it beeps three times and does not turn on. Any thoughts?
