Hello @derick_f1774

What you have is commonly referred to as the Red Light of Death for PS3 consoles. It is caused by the PS3 overheating.

I’ve had this issue before as well and there are tons of guides on how to fix it. My best recommendation to you, if you feel comfortable enough to take it apart, would be to simply replace the thermal paste application on the CPU and GPU inside of the console. Clean off the old thermal paste and apply new then test once the console is put back together to see if it works.

This is the only thing that has worked for me in the past, I’ve tried putting it in the oven or on the grill, and all the other tricks you can find on the internet. But simply replacing the old thermal paste, re-seating everything, and turning it back on worked for me.

Here is an article on how to tear it down. [guide|10670]

In step 13 you will find the relevant information. Hope this helps.
