Does the system shut off afterwards? I would insert a game and in 5-10 minutes, the system would turn off and the red light would blink a bit. If that's the case, then it's a hardware failure. You'll most likely have to ship it in to repair it. Unless you can do it yourself.
The manual clearly states a blinking red light is an "over heat condition" and your system has shut down to prevent a failure. You need to find more airflow for your PS3. If your system is cooled down and you are still getting a blinking red light then you will need to replace the CPU board because it has melted from excess heat.

Again, people assume because it is blinking red that it is the "YLOD", better known as a hardware failure.
"When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes 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." Good luck......
Hello, When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked. The blinking red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage. Provide a proper vent for the system... Hope this will help...
Try removing the game inside your disc. then try removing other external hardware and slots and try again. If problem persists it might be a system problem. Please go to the shp from where you bought it and ask them for a replacement.
1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been
caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on
again 2) Check if there's any loose cable. 3)
Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You
might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.
did not work Send your playstation back to Sony
try reseting your video settings by holding the on;off button for about 5 seconds when turning on . if this doesn't work, must be a problem with your hardware. then you should take the system to a support centre.
about the disk, have u tried to turn the system on by pushing directly the eject button ?
