Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
HI. the red light is signaling an issue that concerns HD(Hard disk). If it is under warranty, i would advise to send it in. This repair will be free if the warranty is active.
Now, if the unit is not under warranty, simply remove the HD, and re boot the system. it should power up with the HD removed. If it powers up with out the HD, this will confirm that the HD is the culprit.
Re insert the HD and try to boot a game. If the red light begins to flash once more, contact Sony for a repair ticket asap. The HD should be replaced and the internal connection must be re-soldered as well.
