Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
"When the power status light flashes red after turning it on the PS3 system and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."
"If this happens:
• Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.
• If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.
• Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.
• If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."

Power off the unit using the toggle
switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle
switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and should eject
your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not
the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the
memory card slots.
