Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When the light flashes red and you ALSO see the green light on too this indicates that the system is getting hot and you need to switch off and let it cool down.
if you switch on get the beeps see yellow light briefly then flashing red only this indicates failure.
The system has shut itself off to stop further damage ..... supposedly caused by getting hot .. maybe fan failed .... only thing that can be done is to contact Sony for repair or replacement.
I know this post is old but thought the info could help others ...... I hope you returned your PS3.
