Press the power button and let it sit for 24 hours while completely shut down.

It should start to work.

I have tried every sort of recovery on this nothing is working. I get the recovery menu, and then the unit locks up. The screen gets all messed up and just freezes. Sometimes it boots but always freezes within seconds. The system is cold so its not overheating. I'm so fuggin pissed right now

Problem is I bought this used because I wanted one that played PS2 games since the MOFO's removed the ability in the newer versions. What a dumb move that was. What gets me is everything was working great. I just sat down to watch a movie and the dam thing just froze, and since it froze I can't get back into it, I've reset the hard, went into the recovery menu, i'm in it for a few seconds and then garbage comes on the screen and the system is locked.

Thing is it's been running great. Then I remember seeing posts about the lastest firmware and basically screwing up PS3's. We'll I can say it must be true, the guy before he sold it too me updated it to the lastest firmware. So I'm willing to bet the firmware had something to do with it. Right now I hate sony.

Whats the worse that can happen.
Btw the Update thats Hurt PS3s was like 2.00 or somthing. The current Update is 3.50 somthing. seriously if its not up to date then try n update it

BTW is it more of an Orange color b4 it blinks. The 1st Flash will be orange.
Thats a sign of Hardware Failure. Same as Xbox RRoD

I've been reading about tons of people's PS3 going to crap after the 3.x firmware upgrades, mine has the latest. Maybe the HD got corrupted or something. I was able to boot up the box without the hard drive once, but now it doesn't show video. It's freaking out. That is what I get for buying used, but I only bought it for the PS2 compatibility which I had a ton of games for, my mistake. I'll let it sit until tommorrow and try it again, I'm ready to seriously slam it against the ground. $500.00+ bucks spent on this POS.
