Red light of death


That common problem is the Yellow Light of Death and the Blinking Red Light on the PS3, which can easily be repaired from home (D.I.Y), rather than from Sony. I have also noticed that many others problems have arisen on the PS3, which can also be repaired from your own home! Click here

Assuming that you are only having YLOD issues with your PS3. There is not any video that can help you to get rid of this problem. The only solution is the find a guide that is made by SOny's expert which already available on internet and fix your PS3 yourself following their guides. Visit here for YLOD PS3 Fix

Ps3 powering problem


this is similar to the red blinking lights of death on the xbox360...it seems your cell processor has overheated resulting in a cold solder joints or worse bridged solder involving the BGA array...The Ps3/WII/XBOX360 all use lead-free solder which tends to to weaken and crack.
I have had some success in fixing these albeit limited. sony charges 150 plus state tax and sends you a refurbished unit.
