Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
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:
Their number is 1-800-345-7669
