PS3 Red Light Flashing is not just a overheat problem, sometimes it related to hard drive and blu-ray drive problems too.

There is a PS3 Repair Guide that teach you how to resolve those problems, it worth to have a look.

"PS3 Red Blinking light of death, your ps3 is death" lol you're special. the red blinking light of death? ... that's an xbox thing. 'red ring of death' blinking light of death... 'Sounds like a heat sync problem. you will more that likely need to re-seat the GPU and CPU as well." this wil probably void any warranty you may or may not have on your system. also, if you remove the serial number sticker then sony will not service your unit and you're stuck to buy a new one

Red light blinks and wont stay on when push power button


You can do this fan test.

Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it and you should hear a beep.

The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.

After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and the red light will blink. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.

Tell me how this goes!!

Will not power up, red light goes green flashes yellow then stays flashing red


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony and they will send you a new or refurbshed one. Your ps3 is one in a billion (according to Sony). North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721

Ps3 problem, ps3 doesnt turn on (stays in red light flashing)


More than likely your system has overheated. The thermal compound has heated and moved away from the CPU/GPU and the heat sync keep the heat from being dissipated via the heat sync. Eventually you will get the YLOD which is the equivalent of the Xbox 360 RROD. This is due to heat sysnc problems. Your CPU and GPU will more than likely need to be reflowed. I got the YLOD on my PS3 around the first of March 09. I also fixed my PS3 in about an hour. I have had no problems since. You can slow the YLOD but i dont believe it can be stopped. It seems it will eventually happen to all PS3's. One tip do not stand the PS3 on its side keep flat. This will help keep the thermal compound from moving as much when it heats up. Also i run a home based computer repair business in southern California. Feel free to email me at dwdpcrepair@gmail.com.
