Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
You can try to reset the console:
While the PS3 is off (solid red light) Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.
If you're unable to perform the above then you've got either:
RLOD (Red Light of Death - Caused by the unit overheating)
YLOD (Yellow Light of Death - Caused by GPU / CPU )
There are some DIY methods to fix the problem but as someone who fixes PS3's on a daily basis I would HIGHLY recommend you sending your unit into SONY direct for repair.
