PS2 Slimline Red Light Blinking

My children's PS2 has intermittent blinking red status light. Manual says this means overheating, but happens after console has been unplugged for hours. I am pretty technologically inclined, but I can't find an obvious problem with loose solder joints on the board or anything like that, that would normally cause an intermittent problem. When the box does work, the fan is running.

Ps3 stopped suddenly working and red light blinking push the on/off button the light stops blinking and stays fix red push again turns green few second then red blinking again any idea what may have...

Hi Andrea.
What your experiencing is the the well known "PS3 Red/Green Light of death" which generally means a hardware failure or overheating. If it's overheating (2 Red lights) then it will automatically shut down after a while but from what your saying it's not overheating.

If you have it in warranty you have to send it to Microsoft and they will send it back usually 3-4 weeks or take it to a reputable gaming console repair shop (this will cost money).

But first check that your AV cable is properly plugged in (in this case all four RED lights are bleeping). If you're using an HDMI connection forget about this step.

So if you don't have a warranty then it will cost you about $150.
Another thing you can do is follow a guide and repair all of the errors with the PS3 including your problem. Click here for more information.

Ps2 shuts and starts blinking red light

To confirm: red light blinking does mean that the console is overheating, which I know from experience.

Solution: Do not leave on carpet or any materials similar as they insulate. If possible, leave the console vertical instead of horizontal and this will help cool the system. Better yet, if you can still find one, a USB fan that plugs onto the front of your grill.

Hope this helps.
