Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the RED LIGHT ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

Red flashing light, won't power on My PS3 60GB has just switched itself off in the middle of a game!! Red light is flashing on the front and it won't come back on!! What is the problem?


Try turning the power off at the back and leave it unplugged for 10 minutes.

How long has it been running for without being turned off to cool down?
