When i turn on the Playstation 3 the screen goes all red and says a serious virus has occured, contact technical help for assistance. What do I do?


One way to fix red screen of death on PS3 is to update the firmware. You need to download the latest firmware from Sony's website. Prepare a USB memory stick, and create a folder called PS3 on it. Inside this PS3 folder, create a folder called UPDATE. Down load the PS3 firmware into the UPDATE folder.
Connect the USB memory stick to your PS3. Hit and hold the power button on PS3 until you here 3 beeps. You may seen the menu screen on PS3. If not, press and hold the power again. From the onscreen menu, you should be able to install the new firmware. Update your PS3 and see what happens. No change? Go to the next method.
The other way of PS3 red screen fix is to reformat your PS3 hard drive. There is high possibility that your PS3 hard drive has been corrupted which causes red screen. Therefore you have to reformat it, and restore the system to build the new database.
Firstly, backup all your personal files onto an external USB drive. Take out the your HDD and reformat it using your PC. OR reformat on you PS3 too. Press and hold the power button on PS3 until you here 2 beeps. Then you got a menu where guide you format the HDD.
After reformatting, reboot the PS3, there should be a screen asking you the restore the system. Follow the instructions and accept all the default settings. After that check to see how your PS3 works.
Give these two fixes a go. You have nothing to lose.
There are also chances that none of them works for you. If that is the case, you have to call Sony. They may ask you to send it back to it and return it after 4-6 weeks. But some lucky guys may have a replacement of a new PS3.
OR get yourself a PS3 repair Guide. This is also a good idea, for it costs little but benefits in the long term. Because a good repair guide will provide detailed fixes to most of the PS3 problems, including PS3 red screen.
No matter which way you choose, wish you a success at last.
If you don't want to give $150 to Sony service center or wait for 4-6 weeks to fix your PS3 up. Here is your step by step professional Rob Sheffield's PS3 Fix Guide. Read the review for more.

unfortunately, you can leave the unit unplugged for about an hour and try again. otherwise, you'll have to either exchange the unit, or call sony and go through their warranty process. this is the only problem that PS3s have that compares to the "red-ring" issue of the 360s.....fortunately for PS3 owners, this is the only thing they would have to worry about. to the best of my recollection, it has something to do with the internal HDD of the PS3, as sometimes, the HDD controller just "goes out". there really isnt anything you can do except for calling sony. sorry :(

Turn off the PS3. Press the power on button (the system will beep) and hold it down for approximately 5 seconds until you hear a second beep. This will reset the video to the default. You should get a low resolution screen and be able to log on and reset the display to the desired settings.
