Hi,

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.

Red screen is one of the major problems of PS3. To repair the console, you can either send it to the sony repair shop but it would be costly and would take 2-3 weeks of time.

But there is one solution, you can repair the gaming console yourself without any problem within no time with the help of PS3 Repair Manual. You can fix your PS3 very easily as there are many pictures, diagrams, and easy instructions to follow.

The programming in the console has somehow corrupted. Try resetting the console to factory defaults. If that doesn't work have a chat with Sony Support.
