We have a PS3 40gb that won't turn on. My son tried to turn it on yesterday and the light turned green briefly and then turned red and blinked.  We have tried unplugging it, turning it off at the switch ont he back, leaving it overnight and still not working this morning.  My son is devestated as it is his birthday next week and he has friends coming round to play on the PS3 with him.  Can anyone please help?!  Many thanks in anticipation. Diane

To help you identify what the lights mean on the front of the console, I have created a guide here:

 

What do the different light colours on the PlayStation 3 mean?

just did this, after fan test blew out loads of dust, turned it back on and all is green, will see how long it lasts. Gonna leave it  on folding at home over night. Touch wood, really don't want to have to do another repair 8 months since the last one. HDD is making a right racket though, maybe I'm just paranoid after all the flashing red lights!

Hello.  I'm having the same problem now on my PS3.  I assumed it was power supply, but want to be sure.  Mine is CECHG01.  Please advise how I would check mine.
