Hi, its not good news im afraid the reason it shuts down and gives you a ref light is due to damage being done to the circuit board inside the ps3.
it could be that it has over heated which is often the case this could be down to dust build up or if the heat sink paste on the gpu and cpu chip has gone brittle or if you have been using the ps3 on carpet or in top of anything else that gives off heat such as dvd or sky box, these cause it to over heat really quick.

right now you have a couple of options if you have any warranty left take it back and get a refund if your warranty has run out then you could try getting it repaired but their is no guarantee the repair will work or how long it will work after the reapir.

as you have got the red light this does mean the console has over heated and their is a fault with the board so its not going to work again the way it is.

now i repair these for 25 quid plus parts so you need to look around if you want it repaired and see what the best price you can get.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 if off (red light solid) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if this works, otherwise we'll try step 2.
