Unfortunately, this means your PS3 has broken :smileysad:. You'll need to call Sony customer support and inform them and they'll give you a repair/refurbishment. This usually costs between £100-£150.

The number is 0844 736 0595 for the UK

For future reference, there is also a guide to the lights on the front of the PlayStation 3 and what they mean? (with illustrations):

Did you too upgraded the PS3 to 4.10?

I have the same problem after this update.
