The red flashing light and the console down due to excessive heat. I believe what you are starting to see is the classic symptom of a very near YLOD. I would either try and repair it myself, using the guides from here Yellow Light of Death Repair and this part or get someone to do it for you. Good Luck

Did this work for you?

I performed this procedure because I had a "3 beeps, red light flashing" symptom that online research said means overheating. The unit ran without issue for 30 mins and then the same symptom returned. I have found others who experienced the same. So far, I haven't found anyone who actually resolved the issue for more than a few days. As an engineer, I know that attempting to reflow a BGA of this size using a heat gun is virtually impossible.

kenpery flip chip design and solder ball failure is the most common issue. You are right, any "heat treatment" is only a temporary fix at best.

Ok, you two. So I was young(ish) and got so frustrated and upset by the fact that the Sony rep told me it would be $300? To "repair" my PS3, which turns out I would've gotten a refurb. So a buddy and I tore it apart. Reflowed the CPU/gpu, applied thermal paste, and without the use of the blue ray driver, that lasted for 6 months? Then six months later? I did it the third time, then three months, three months, two months, two months, one month, continually having to reflow, then finally dead. Now, I could remove the processors, reball them, reapply, problem should be fixed. It seems the real culprit was the blu Ray driver

@theimedic possible that it was. Read about the reflow of the Xbox360 and PS3 Will the RROD kit fix this xbox? and see why it never really worked for long :-)

You are getting the red blinking lights on the PS3 because it is over heating. You might still be able to prevent more damage from occurring if you take apart the PS3 and clean out the fan. Usually dust clumps get stuck in there. If you keep using the PS3 like this, you will damage the board permanently!

Here is a useful guide

This depends. If it begins with the 3 beeps after using an heat gun and allowing it to cool down. Then it's nothing yo do with overheating but something could been damaged and/or 1 or more of the chips has been unseated. Even another component could of also become unseated.

@kenpery Actually your assessment is not entirely correct.

I performed this procedure for a friend on a PS3 that had this exact same problem. When I was done, their PS3 lasted them for more than a year, so definitely more than just a few days. It can work, just may not work in all cases, or models.

I have been trying to play uncharted 2 for last week now,it started off ok but then all of a sudden it started turning off after starting the game up (time varies sometimes a couple of minutes into gameplay other times about 10 minutes) but whenever I play uncharted 1 or borderlands 1 or 2 it's fine doesn't turn off

For ages now my ps3 has done the updates in the morning but always beeps 3 times and turns off leaving the red light flashing

Make sure the PS3 is connected , but the main switch is off at the back, then keep your finger on the eject button then hit the on switch at the back. Should boot up again.

yes! Now it's worth the dismantle/ clean

I recently (about two minutes ago) found out that Lego Marvel's Avengers heats up my ps3 and makes it shut off, but Minecraft: PlayStation®3 Edition can keep my ps3 running for over 2 hours idling! Guess what game I’m never playing again.

I bought a used PS3 that arrived DOA with this problem. I did a lot of research on how to fix it, but my technical skills aren't that great so there wasn't anything I wanted to try. Then I swear to god I ran across a fix that so far has worked for me and you don't even have to disassemble the machine. Put the

PS3 in its box (or another) with the rear vents facing out. You can also just wrap it in a towel. I wound up doing both as all I had was a larger box. Use a hair dryer running it back and forth across the length of the vents for 5 minutes. Let it rest for a minute, do another 5 minutes, let it rest a minute, then do a final 5 minutes and set the unit someplace relatively cool and let it cool down for about an hour.

I plugged it in and it worked. There are several videos on YouTube that use this method. That's where I originally saw this fix.

Will it last? Don't know, but so far I have had no problems.

You should be really careful, if you decide to use this method. More than once, I've seen people completely fry their PS3 this way, making it 100% unrecoverable.
