Your hard drive is corrupt and you may need warranty service for your PS3. I'm sorry, but there's no easy fix for this.

Sounds like the hard drive will not initialize . This problem is most likely
your hard drive. Try another hard drive . If the problem persist then you have
time out error that will some times trip the 360 to display 3 red lights . First
try another drive . And post the results and I'll advise accordingly.

Putting old hard drive in new ps3 to get game saves error


You cannot switch a hard drive from an old ps3 and put it into the new one. The new ps3 will know that a new hard drive was inserted and offer to format it.

To get the games off the old hard drive, put it back into the old ps3. Insert a USB flash drive into a USB port on the PS3 and you should be able to copy saved games from the hard drive onto the USB flash drive. You can then plug the USB flash drive into your new ps3 and copy off the saved game info,

XBOX has flashing red light, need to know how to fix the problem


You should be getting an error code on the screen. Depending on that code, you will need to fix it in different ways. If you're getting a hard drive error, you will need to mod the system with a mod chip and replace the hard drive. if it's an other error, you will need to replace the system. The easiest thing it to buy a mod chip. There are many solderless chips out there for under $40. If the lights are flashing yellow and red, then that means the av cable isn't connected.
