check your console and making sure those fans are not blocked off. If you notice a
lot of dust on the console, clean it off right away. Once you fix the blinking
red light of your ps3 and your console is working again, you will want to keep
the vents clean and unobstructed.find the hard drive on the side of your console and remove it. Wait a
few seconds and replace it. In some cases this may fix PS3 red light. If you
still see the blinking red light, there is a chance you have more substantial
damage inside your unit.Then unplug the console from the wall for about half an hour and then plug it
back in. This doesn't always work, but some people have had success with
problems other than overheating.
