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.

PS3 wont stay on


Your PS3 may be overheating. Check the exhaust of the ps3 where the hot air comes out for any excessive dust. If you have a 60GB PS3, you can blow them out by turning off the PS3 by the back switch and then turning it on using the back switch with you finger on the eject button. The PS3 should beep 3 times and your fans should go at full tilt for about 30sec to 1 min.

The red light on my ps3 is blinking and wont stay on


Turn off the ps3. Try reseating the hard drive. Take the cables off and then hook them back up. After this turn the ps3 back on and see if the blinking red light goes away. If it doesn't then try another hard drive in the system. If the blinking light goes away then you know you have a bad hard drive. If the blinking light does not go away then you know either the power supply or main board is bad.

Ps3 wont start up


This could be one of 2 problems...
1. The firmware is corrupted and it needs to be fixed by Sony.
2. The video defaults need to be reset. Here is how to do this.

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.
