No previous problems on my 40gb ps3 since i've bought it. Turned on the ps3 and it needed the update. Mid way through the update it crashed and went to the flashing red light, not possible to turn on the safe mode as it turns off in a second. Is there any possible solutions? Factory reset in a different way perhaps?

Unfortunately if you have a red flashing light then it is unlikely that you will be able fix the console yourself.
I would advise contacting your local PlayStation Support to discuss your repair/replacement options.
