Downloaded system update, when it goes to install the light turns orange. Then the system shutsdown and the light goes red and blinks.


Hello Wright and welcome to FixYa. You mentioned you saw an orange light. The PS3 system only displays green, yellow and red so I'm going to assume you saw a yellow light. Based off the information you provided it sounds as if your system update software was corrupted. Since the PSN is currently down I also have to assume you were updating via a USB stick. If you can get your PS3 to restart I would redownload the update again from playstation.com directly and retry if you cannot get your PS3 to restart then it is most likely bricked and will need to be sent to Sony for repair. Let's hope you can restart the console. Wright I wish you the best of luck and I hope I was helpful.

PS3 suddenly would not start up! The start up light goes from red to green then turns orange and then starts flashing red.


Yes this is the famous red light of doom you need to send it in when you get this error or you can fix it yourself using a good guide.

Ps3 will not switch on. The green light turns orange than red


This is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know because it blinks red). This is caused when the unit overheats causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Soon as turn PS3 on it goes orange then flashes red.


Its called the Yellow Light of Death. It can be repaired but what you need is an Infra Red BGA reflow of the solder on the PS3 graphics chip.
The best place in the UK to do it is:
