Hello there Rick
If you have the red
blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.
The light is a warning
sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick
explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the
GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder
heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this
will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection
with the motherboard and you get the RLOD.
WHERE TO GO FROM
1 - Call Sony
In warranty the Price
is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150,
the whole process is 4-6 weeks
You can call Sony and
they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back
2 - Fix it your Self
You can use a PS3 fix
manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you
probably already own.

system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights
at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled
itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...... u just fix this by using ps3 repair guide....
