Try this first:
Hold down the eject button for 10 - 15 seconds. this is supposed to work as a manual eject for the PS3.
If that does not work, Try Reformatting the PS3 hard drive, youll find the option under settings in the PS3 menu
Hi my name is Juan and unfortunately your ps3 is dead what happen is that for some reason it got so hot and the processor stop working when you turn on the ps3 it does a self test and if something is not working right it turns off immediately with a green yellow red light so don't spend your money in another power supply I can guaranty to you is not the power supply I do sell and fix playstations and this is why I know this this problem is common on the 60Gb and 80Gb also in 40Gb but not like on the 60and 80Gb
