SOURCE: PS3 power light flashes red.
It's the YLOD. You can try these suggestions here:
if none of them work it's likely the GPU unit on the motherboard.

What you got is the YLOD (Yellow Light Of Death)
And it can be caused by overheating, where the cpu/gpu in up to 90% of the YLOD cases seperate from the board.
in some cases it can also be a faulty psu.
my guess is that your cpu/gps is seperated from the board.
And as i see it then you have 2 options :
1. if you still have warrenty i suggest you use it, and then send it to sony.
2. If no warrenty try this below, it does require tools, and some knowhow.
so be carefull if you wanna try this on your own.
if you dont feel like doing this on your own, then try search in google on"YLOD" and see if you can find any workshops near you, im sure thereis, since this is a commen problem now a days.
