Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
If it is blinking a red light after it shuts off this is known as the yellow light of death. This is caused when the unit overheats casuing the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.
