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.

Will not power up, red light goes green flashes yellow then stays flashing red


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony and they will send you a new or refurbshed one. Your ps3 is one in a billion (according to Sony). North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721
