Question about Sony Playstation 3 (40 GB) Console
This is similar to the red light problem but the reason you get a screen is because the GPU has overheated.
You just need to stop the heat build up getting to the main chips and you will be able to play your games again.
To do this you have 2 choices:
Send it in and they will fix it for you although something to bear in mind that it will take 4 weeks and cost you $150 for the fix.
Or you can use a good PS3 Repair guide and fix it yourself.

This is a problem known as RSOD(red screen of death). There is nothing you can do to actually fix it. RSOD indicates massive hardware failure, and the only people with the necessary equipment to fix it are the guys at sony.
