SOURCE: flashing red light
"that scratchy noise" is indicative of a overheating RSX processor. when the thermal sensors under the processor of the PS3 are tripped, you get the green/red/yellow light sequence. I always tell customers its best to shut off the machine and fix the problem ASAP. if you continue to use the unit whilst overheating (if you get it to even turn on that is) you can possibly short circuit the solder joints of the BGA array and damage the uit forever. Not even SONY can fix it at this point unless the unit is reflowed, which renders the unit very unreliable anyway. reflowing rarely works for a long periods of time so SONY just replaces the unit for 150plustax with a refurb and you could wait for weeks. i usually apply thermal compound and add shims to ensure proper cooling of the two processors..the RSX and the CELL

Actualy it means that the Ps3 overheated and the saunter that was connecting the mother board to the chips has melted off. You could repair it yourselve or send it into Sony for a reapir

do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..
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.
If this did not work
Send your playstation back to Sony
