Hello, When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked. The blinking red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage. Provide a proper vent for the system... Hope this will help...
sighh dude thats it its over!! unless you bought it from a store and still have your warranty than send it to repair or send it by mail.. that blinking red light A.K.A ring of dead is horrible thats why you should get another system
From what I understand its a problem with the backwards compatibililty(the engine/drive that lets you play ps1/ps2 games)on the 60g.Sony says they have never heard of this problem yet these models are no longer in production.I have had mine for 2 years and it died today,same problem.
The two red lights is an overheating issue. It correlates with the 3 red lights. First check with Microsoft if your warranty seal is still intact and ask them if its under warranty. also there are some vary qualified technicians who guaranty their work up to 90 days.

there are two posibilitys to your problem it could be either there is something unpluged in your 360 or your could have a virus you should take your 360 apart and check it if it is still under warrenty through microsoft you should send it in to them and let them fix it but if it is out of warrenty then you should get the tools at your nerest radio shack and take it apart and check it out and let me know what happens
The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console
exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot,
overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system
has adequate ventilation.
Since you've been inside it's possible that a heatsink or some other part of the cooling system is not working properly or is loose. Check all these!
