The symptom of this error is: when switching on PS3, the LED goes green for one or a few seconds then turns to RED and keeps blinking. You can see LEDs showing Yellow for a very short time when the LED changes from Green to RED. There is no video or audio from TV. This is major hardware failure in general.
