The PS3 turning off with a flashing red light means that the console is overheating.

Make sure the fan (which is at the back) is not blocked by anything, the room your in is ventilated and the PS3 isn't in direct sunlight.

If this still doesn't work then you can buy a more powerful cooling fan for your PS3 or i've heard just aiming a battery powered handheld fan at the back of the PS3 works

Flashing red light on play station 3


Try turning off the PS3 at the back and then on again after about 15 - 20 seconds. When you turn it on, press the eject button.

if this is a woireless controller, it means that the controller needs to be charged. If this occurs when you have the controller connected to the PS3, it means either the USB cable you are using is bad or the rechargable battery in the controller is dead.

I'm afraid you have gotten the Yellow Light of Death ( YLOD ) you will need to have your PS3 repaired by a technician or you can Google YLOD and you will find a repair guide.

My ps3 brinks red


Hello, I'm sorry to say this but the blinking red light is = the light of Doom. Your PS3 is dead. This is somewhat like the XBOX Red ring of death.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

Ps3 wont turn on when i try it will beep and a yellow light will turn on and then it will turn back to the red light


i am sorry to say this but you have a irreversible condition called: The yellow light of death, similar to the X-Box's red ring of doom! you will have to buy a new ps3 sadly, but this only happens to about 1% of ps3, so your odds are better.

Guitar hero world tour for ps3


i had the same problem but with trial and error i came up with a soulution
1. Turn on the Playstation 3
2. Plug the dongle for the drum set into an open port on the PS3, the light will begin to flash slowly.
3. Hold down the button (where the light is flashing) on the dongle until it begin flashing very rapidly. Release the button and the light continues to flash rapidly.
4. Hold down the PS button on the drum set until the red light starts flashing rapidly.
5. Within a few seconds you will get a solid light on both the Guitar Hero World Tour Drum Set and the Playstation 3.


thanks
