It seems from your description that the PS3 is actually booting up. there could be 2 problems.

Problem one is that you have faulty/damaged power adaptor running into the playstation, causing the circuitry to short out which will shut the console down, and the second problem could lie inside the system itself, there could be an intermittent hardware problem within your console.

I would suggest calling Sony Customer support and explaining the problem, they will be able to guide you step by step through the error checking and rectification of the problem !

Hope this helps
