That is a very bad sign indeed. Does it ever at least eject the disc that is in there? Whenever you get this red flashing light it is equivalent to the Xbox 360's "red ring of death" meaning some hardware internally has failed. Try flipping the power switch on your PS3 (if your model has a power switch, it should at the back) and then unplug the power from the back of the PS3. Let it sit at least 2 minutes, then plug it in and flip that switch again. If it still powers on and blinks red you will need to contact Sony's PlayStation division for repairs:

Flashing red light will not eject game


if you turn it on, and it goes green then yellow then beeps 3 times and flashes red, then your ps3 has overheated and been damaged. you can fix it with the heat gun trick, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_Ic1_TY-GU

but it will only break again.

try flipping the switch in the back, then hold the eject button while you flip the switch back on, that should eject the disc.

SYSTEM DOES NOT TURN ON. FLASHES, SHUTS OFF, NO EJECT


Unfortunately, you are going to need to have your PS3 serviced by Sony. To eject your game, flip the power switch on the back of the PS3 to off. Then press and hold the eject button and turn the switch back to on again. This should eject the disc. Best of luck with the repair.

My playstation 3 will light up green then yellow


1. Try turning the ps3 on and off and then hitting eject.

2. Do Not try to open up the playstation. You may do more damage than good.

3. Try to halfway insert another game, cd, or dvd into the playstation 3 and press eject.

4. Here's the one that worked for me. I slid another compact disc into the console almost all the way but still holding on to it and pushed up as I pulled the disc back out. To my suprise another disc began to slide out with it. I had no idea how many discs were actually inside the ps3, but when I hit eject the original game that was in there still would not come out, so I new something still wasn't right. I repeated the process a few more times and low and behold, I had a total count of four, aside from the game. At last, eject finally pushed hubby's NBALive out of the playstation.
