I am having the same issue. i tried the fan test but it won't stay on long enough to eject the game. It first turned off during a game and flashed red. let it sit for a day vacuumed it out and it played for 10 minutes and then stopped and blinked red. now it won't stay on longer then 2 sec. my model is a 40gig made in 2007 number CBEH1000. WHAT will i need to do?

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.

I have somewhat of the same issue but a little different, we own two playstation 3s and I went to switch them from one room to another and plugged one of them in and I get the red flashing light and it won't do anything any suggestions?

Sounds like the power supply. this happened to my 2nd PS3, the 1st got YLoD. Luckily i kept both untill a friend suggested doing a transplant and so far its been working fine.

 

There may be you tube guides out there but its a pretty easy job, just need a small star shaped screwdriver and small & large cross headed ones. if dissasembling your pride and joy doesnt phase you that is otherwise a local computer repair shop should be able to do it for you.

 

However, if your PS3 is still under warranty then contact Sony as opening the machine will void your warranty (both of mine had expired LONG before)
