The sensor that read the unit on or off maybe burned out or fault. if the unit works then you shouldnt worry about the ligt then.

My playstation just shut off an the red light flashes

do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
2) Check if there's any loose cable.
3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work
Send your playstation back to Sony

I was watching a Blu-Ray movie this morning and my PS3 just shut off and proceeded to have a red blinking light. I pressed the power button and a solid red light appeared. I pressed the power button...

You have major problems I'm afraid. You need to contact Sony about fixing it/replacing it. Just pray it's under warranty. You could equate this problem with the 360's Red Ring of Death.

PS3 doesn't appear on screen. Possible power issue.

Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

Playstation 2 Controller problem or problem with Playstation 2 itself. Rt keypad not ON. Red light on controller.

Appears from the red light that the machine sees the controller.  From other sites it seems that there is foam inside and that it slips sometimes and that would explain why one part works and not the other.  The X button feels funny as if it does not depress all the way.  I am going to buy another controller and see if that solves the problem.  Two games work the same with it.
