It sounds like it's a major system failure. If you just got it, Sony will honor the warranty and fix it or replace it. As far as I know, there is no fix for this. Myself and a couple other techs have tried MANY repairs for machines like this. I have found that the problem lies within the mother board. Sorry about that. Good luck to you.

PS3 Light Keeps Flashin Green/Yellow/Red


There are some reasons of PS3 goes red/green/yellow light and flashing red then turn off. But don't waste money to find someone to fix it yet! It may be a minor issue that you can be fixed by yourself.
Remember, you are not the only one to suffer this problem! Because I had help so many people to fix the same problem now. You are so lucky to be there. I share a guide for you - It make me like a pro to help my friends and many people. It is too expensive to send back to Sony repair if your machine is out of warranty!
I had solved the same problems after bought this guide. The author of the book is really kind and helpful to his customers. May be you can buy it and share what you have learned !

I cant get my PS3 to work


Is your warranty purchased from Sony itself or from the place of purchase i.e. Walmart extended warranty? Return it to the place of purchase. They should have your PS3 serial number and can look it up. Once they verify you have the extended warranty, they should take care of it.

If you purchased direct from Sony, try this link:

Playstation.com Knowledge Center concerning returns


Contact Official Playstation

Addressing the actual probelm. I am not sure if this would work but turn off the PS3, Once light turns red, touch the power button and keep holding as light turns green then goes back to red. The try restarting the PS3. Thats a video reset. It may work, it may not.
