You must send your Playstation to Sony. Sony would be the only people that would know how to fix your problem. Sorry I could not be more helpful.

Red screen


The "Red Screen of Death" usually happens in later PS3 Fat models right after you have turned on the PS3. It can happen right after the PS3 logo and wave animation appears. It is a mysterious error that seem to be software related during the checking process (perhaps some corruption in nand flash or harddrive block). When the error occurs, the screen turns red, and you see a message:

A serious error has occurred. Contact technical support for assistance.

My screen appears red, asking for technical support.


Hi Ernesto,

If you are getting this error it is called the no display error.

Cause:

The reason that it happens is because the GPU which deals with all of your graphics has overheated. You just need to stop the heat build up in order to make it work again.

Solution:

The first way you can fix the No Display Error is by sending it in but bear in mind for this problem there is a $150 charge for the repair which is pretty steep!

Alternative Solution That Is Faster:

If you want to get the problem fixed EVEN FASTER than the option for you is a good PS3 Repair Guide.

Red screen: "a serious error has occured"


This is called the "PS3 Red Screen Of Death" it's the same as the 360's RROD. The best solution would be to contact Sony about it and they should resolve the issue.

PS3 is "on", red screen has occurred with a error warning


this is probably an warning about problems with your hardware (such as gpu or ram modules) .
The only thing you can do is taking the system to an assistance centre for hardware checking, they will test all the components of the system .

if your system is covered by warranty, don't waste time and call sony as soon as you can !!

unfortunately, there isn't any firmware solution to fix it, because all system functionality is prejudiced.
the only thing you can do (i belive it wont work), is reseting av settings by holding the on;off button when starting up the system .

When i turn on my ps3 a red screen comes up


Usually it's a motherboard issue, but you can try booting the PS3 WITHOUT the hard drive installed and see what happens.

Let me know.
