booting up takes several tries?

2 replies 41 views Edited Aug 24, 2012

When I turn on my ps3 fat model G, it takes about 6 or 7 tries to get it to boot but then it will play all day. Once it is on I can turn off the system and it will turn back on in 1 try. When it sets all night then it takes several times to get it to turn on, it will turn on for a second then 3 beeps and flashing red light. I have another system with the bad solder and it doesn't work at all so is this still a solder issue or something else?

 

Thanks in advance

it could just be a power supply issue...... I don't recommend continued use of the PS3 until you can properly fix it.

Sounds like your Power Supply is about to go. Could you check the 12V rail and the voltage outputs of the PSU with a multimeter?
