Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
I have red many forums on this issue, and it appears to be a system error and the system will be replaced if you still have your warranty and proof of purchase
Some people think that it is an overheating issue and to leave it powered off for a few hours before trying again, although sadly I do believe that you are having a system error and would recommend that you contact customer service at sony.

This can can be any one of numerous issues. The first step toward setting everything to rights is to discover what the light is trying to communicate, outside of the obvious fact that your system is not working. First, disconnect everything from the unit, power cable, HDMI, component cables, controller-charging cables or anything else you may have connected.
Allow the unit to sit and cool off for a few minutes before re-attaching all the component wires. It is a good idea to begin with just the connection to the television. You can also try a manual reset of the system if the above steps do not work, simply press and hold the power button for ten seconds.
If none of the above works, you are dealing with a serious PS3 flashing red light issue. This could be a faulty power supply, dead hard drive or malfunctioning CPU just to name a few. You will need to check all these components out and determine if they are still functioning correctly. Screwdrivers and a few other common household tools may be required.
