Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
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.
