Hey booty124,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, if the power indicator is blinking red and does not turn on, the system may have overheated or ventilation ducts may be blocked. It's suggested that you press the power button on the front of the console to stop the flashing, and then turn it back on after it has had a chance to cool down. You may wish to try moving the PS3 to an open, well-ventilated area and to make sure that the vents are not clogged with dust as well.

Should the unit not power on after being allowed to rest for some time (and the power indicator continue to blink red), your PS3 may be encountering an electrical failure that requires service or repairs. In order to seek service, you'll probably want to give Sony a call at their toll-free hotline for further assistance: 800-345-SONY (800-345-7669).

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

I press power button the light turns green then red& keep blinkin


You have the dreadful blinking red light of death. Long story short the system is broken due to overheating and heat damage to the motherboard and you have a few options:
  1. send the system to sony and receive a refurbished system for $150.
  2. find a local to do it for much cheaper
  3. watch vids on the web (youtube.com) and fix it yourself but it is fairly difficult.
  4. buy a new ps3.
I hope I have helped and feel free to ask me any questions and let me know how it goes.

Red light blinking on PS3


If your having this problem I know how to fix it but only for about 30-45 seconds.
Okay this is what you do.

1.If your ps3 is turned on press the red button , it should turn green then yellow ,beep and blink red.
now do this 3 times without turning it off.

2.Turn your ps3 off.

3.Turn it on while holding the eject button.

4.Now your ps3 should stay on ,(like I said for about 30-45 seconds).Also the fan should be on.But then after a while it turns back off.And that's as far as I got.


(It really works if you do it right)
