How long before this happens? Sounds like a failing hard drive. I'd start with a system restore, otherwise swap the hard drive and then you'll know for sure. It's easy!

Console turns off and red light flashes

There is a possibility that your PS3 is going bad. It might be the HDD or the PS3 system itself. If you can take the HDD out of the PS3 and then turn it on and see the dashboard then it's your HDD if not then your PS3 is in a bad shape. If it has warranty I would suggest go with that much cheaper cost and Sony will replace that for sure.

I have the same problem

before you sell or send it in either try formatting the hdd to fix any bad sectors in your system, and get yourself a can of CO2 pc internal spray that stuff is high powered and used to clean inside systems so it will take all the dust away from the fan to stop it from clogging up

Turned off with out doing anything

if it is a red light.... you have the ps3 equivalent to the rings of death on a xbox 360 meaning it had a serious system crash it has something to do with the gpu and cpu and you must send it back for a replacement as it is unfixable, here what the colors mean, red=dead, green=good, yellow=overheated

Won't turn on

Did you keep you PS3 in a enclosed environment? This question is only to help eliminate the possibility of the HDD failure. Does the fan run? My guess this may be a hardware failure.

Is your PS3 still under warranty? If not, you may want to try this. Get your hand on a Laptop HDD considering it is the same size as the PS3. Buy an adapter so you can hook up the HDD from the PS3 in your PC. Copy the HDD entirely onto the new drive. (This is only under the assumption the drive is failing but not dead). Reconnect the HDD into your PS3.

If it is the fan, go to your local computer store and buy a replacement. You may want to consider purchasing an external fan that snaps on the PS3. Good luck.

Yellow lights of death

This is a common problem unfortunetly. I would get it replaced if you have warrenty on it. The yellow light most likely indicates that the hard drive has failed.
