It might be overheated so what you can try to do is get a can of compressed air and spray along the vents and the inside of the console make sure that when you spray it that you hold the can upright and at least 2 inches away from the console

hope that i could help!

Im having the same problem myself, if the air does not work you might have to do a complete teardown of the Ps3, re-thermal paste the heat sink, and clean all the components. If it got hot enough and bumped, you might have disloged the heatsink as was my problem.. although it voids any warantee, however, mine is expired and dont want to pay the $150 bill from sony.

    as an addendum to my last post.. ive also had a YLOD (red yellow light of death) , aso with the teardown i had to reflow the board, it sounds scary and it is until you do it once or twice...

    you have to take the board, put it on a level, heat resistsnt surface, use a heat gun to heat the main chips up until the solder melts and "reflows" or connects the chips back to the board, it is going to pop amd crackle dont worry thats normal, but do not touch it till its cooled down. you have to get it really hot, ive read you can do it in an oven set at 470, but it takez about 70-80 minutes in the oven an at least an hour to cool down and do not touch it.

The red light is blinking and when i turn it on it goes to green for a few seconds and then beeps and blinks red again.


You have "The red ring of death" If 1 corner is blinking: Turn it of and wait a few days for it to cool off. If 2 corners are blinking: Do the same, but check after 3-5 days to see if it works. If 3 corners are blinking: You HAVE to see a xbox repairer, because you can't wait after 3 rings. Saddly, a complete ring of red: You can't do anything about it, it can't be repaired, but check the power wire and reattach it, there's a little glitch where if you loosen the wire, it does that. Good luck!
