Crashing on game exit


Active Member
My PS3 has developed a strange issue. Whenever I quit (about 80%) of games or DVDs via the PS button/quit option, the PS3 pauses for a few seconds, then reboots following three beeps.

This has only been happening for about three weeks.

Has anyone come across this before?

I don't know if it's the cause of your ps3 problem but this sort of behaviour on a PC could mean hard disk issues. I'd backup your HD and reformat it, see if that fixes the problem

Quite possible, it's only 7 months old too :(
Just been checking, and it seems to happen mainly when using a game with a disk or after watching a DVD

Notice this happened to me last night for the first time. PS3 is only 2 or 3 weeks old as well!!!

Will be keeping an eye on this

Does the disc eject?

If I hold down the eject button instead of exiting the game via xmb then my ps3 does what you describe.
