Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I turned my 180 Gb PS3 and instead of normal screen I've received red screen with a warning message " A serious error has occurred. Contact technical support for assistance." written in different languages. How do I fix this problem?
This is probably an warning about problems with your hardware (such as gpu or ram modules) .
The only thing you can do is taking the system to an assistance centre for hardware checking, they will test all the components of the system .
if your system is covered by warranty, don't waste time and call sony as soon as you can !!
unfortunately, there isn't any firmware solution to fix it, because all system functionality is prejudiced.
the only thing you can do (i belive it wont work), is reseting av settings by holding the on;off button when starting up the system .

If you are getting this error it is called the no display error.
The reason that it happens is because the GPU which deals with all of your graphics has overheated. You just need to stop the heat build up in order to make it work again.
The first way you can fix the No Display Error is by sending it in but bear in mind for this problem there is a $150 charge for the repair which is pretty steep!

If you want to get the problem fixed EVEN FASTER than the option for you is a good PS3 Repair Guide.
