I think the BD drive failure is the most common and probably the easiest fix but from my experience, the flashing red light doesn't neccessarily mean the fan has stopped working as my 80GB got the red flashing red light and the fan still kicks on for a second while trying to start. I am thinking it is the thermal sensor thinking it is overheated when it isn't.
