Re: ps3 doesnt turn on
Here is how you can get your cd out. Try replacing the power adaptor. If that doecsn't work, you'll need to contact Sony or the place you purchased it for the power issue (maybe a unit replacement).
"I just want to let everyone know that I had the same problem. This isn't a fix to make the machine work again. This is a fix that will let you get a disc stuck in the machine out when the ps3 won't power on. Turn the machine power off via the switch in the back. Hold the power button on the front of the machine down for about 15-30 seconds. Then, without letting go of the power button on the front of the machine, turn the switch on in the back. This made my machine power on for about 20 seconds, just long enough for me to get the disc out of machine. I could then take the ps3 back to the retailer I purchased it from.
Just to clue everyone in on a possible cause of this problem, the woman from Sony techical support, the one who told me this trick, said that this is happening only when playing Activision games. For me it was Call of Duty 4. " Let me know what happens. Binary Bob

try unplugging the power cord from the ps3 and putting it back on. if that doesnt work, your console might have kicked a breaker in your homes breaker box. on the ps3, always turn it off by the the back power switch.
