Generally there are a couple of things that can cause this. Bad installs of games, and more commonly thermal damage. The bad news is it will probably have to be repaired and Sony generally charges about $150 for that. Hopefully its under warranty? =)
There is some talk that the new firmware download may have altered physical parts that control the temperature inside the unit. Although that's just heresay i've been hearing more and more people thinking this is the case.

The PS3 red light is a huge problem and it is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating, all you need to do is stop the heat build up.
You have 2 ways of doing this:
You can send it in however bear in mind that for the fix you will have to wait for 4 weeks and also pay out $150 as well.
Or you can use a good PS3 Repair guide to fix the problem.
