My screen appeared a red screen,why? and how to solve that?

Did your screen also show a message, in many different languages?

I have had this happen to me a few times while watching movies. Restarting the Playstation seems to correct the issue. I do not know the direct cause.

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.

When i turn on ps3 its a red screen that says eror occured

check on the ps3 and if an orange light is flashing then you have the "flash of death"  its the same thing as the rings of death on the xbox 360 you are going to need to go get it repaired its about 40-60 bucks not sure.  you can also reset the whole thing by hold the power button in the front down and hold for about 30-40 secs if that doesn't work the its option 1 or you should get it check out before going to get it fixed
