PS3 Super slim 500gb making a random single beep noise?

8 replies 1716 views Edited Jan 31, 2013

So i just picked up my pretty new 500gb superslim crystal white ps3 to replace my still working fatboy 80gb....Very pretty..lol.

 Anyways, opened it up, updated the system..and its running nice and quiet, however..my fiancee and i noticed while i  was dowloading

superstreet fighter 4 from ps plus ( a long 18 gb d/l almost 2 hrs) the system randomly beeped about 2 times?.. only once each time and about 30- 45 mins apart?.

Then the next day.... my system completely off i heard this **bleep** beep again..same beep you hear when the system is powered on..again both systems side by side, completely off, lights red..

 

LOL?>> AM I GOING CRAZY WITH PARANOIA ABOUT MY NEW SYSTEM?....  or has anyone else experienced this PS3 poltergeist?

 

any thoughts/suggestions appreciated

Sounds like a good time to replace the batteries on your smoke detectors... some have a very similar beep to the PS3 and will beep on low battery every so often

My 250GB super slim is doing the same thing while off. Also at random when I exit a game the system will either shut off or restart.

 

This is my 2nd PS3, first was the fat.

 

Went to return it and conveniently its past the return time. Thanks Sony, I might as well get a XBox 360.

You still have a warranty you can use... you forgot that...

Nothing is "random." Nothing can be mathematically proven to happen randomly. There is always a cause and an effect.

I do not own the new top tray super slims but the beeping may be from ps plus updating your data whilst offline etc. if not there is a way to do a test, but just the same I would suggest you contact Sony if you aren't in the mood to exchange at store. My current slim does not beep when updating to plus but it did do it once randomly.

Yet "random" is its own mathmatical property, because it is essentially a culmination of all math/science equations with an infinite number of solutions....

Sometimes, random is also used to rationalise something that isn't well understood.

 

I took some "light" physics (pun intended) and some philosophy classes back to back.

Well I have realized this with my PS3 slim about a few months of having it, It started to make a beeping noise but it's been doing it for about a year now and nothing has happened to my PS3. I not sure what is making it beep tho...but it's still working fine for me.
