here is step by step trouble shooting 1) attempt to turn on the ps3 +you will see one of 4 things a green yellow red light +flashing red light +green light +no lights 2) if you see a green yellow red light call sony your system will need service 3) if you see a red flashing light also call sony needs service 4) if the light is green turn off the system and one the light is back to red press and hold the power button for a series of 2 beeps (do not forget the one when you first push the button down) then let go (it might be a video issue) 5) if you still see no video and a green light check the cable you are using and try again on a different tv 6) if you see no power light call sony it needs service
these are genuine trouble shooting steps from sony technical support if you do have to call them be prepared to follow the same steps that lead up to service. thank you
you got the yellow light of death, you would need to reflux solder on the processors and reheat the solder, here is a link for the repair, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIm0Qk0CVTE&feature=related I suggest you take it to a pro if you feel you can not do it, you can mess up your ps3 if you don't do it right and taking it apart is a delicate job.
your PS3 overheated, what you need to do is remove the power cable and hold the power button for 5 seconds to make sure that there is no power left, then plug it back in and press the eject button hold it down, it will power up and eject disk, if that fails, you need to RMA your ps3 to sony or you can try and return it to vendor with the game case or dvd case of the disk that is stuck they should replace both
The problem is known as a YLOD on the PS3 or Yellow Light of Death. Your PS3 is most probably a 60gb model as they are mostly known for this issue. The PS3 is fitted with a very good cooling system. Unfortunately some of the 60gb models still overheats (either the GPU or CPU). This causes the YLOD and is very similar to the XBox' s Red Ring of Death.
The best is to return the PS3 if still under guarantee. You can attempt to repair it yourself at own risk. There are no statistics on how long the fix lasts. Most of the YLOD consoles I repaired myself are still holding out and it seems the fix is more permanent than the Xbox 360 fix. Here is a link to the guide that must be followed and it works (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_Ic1_TY-GU) The other parts in the series you will find on the same page. There are 7 parts
After the fix a couple of things can be done to prevent future overheating: Do not keep the PS3 in a confined space. Keep it away from dust. To enhance airflow, remove the cover over the HDD when switching it on. Switch it off when not playing.
if you cant get your disk out of your ps3 turn off in back of console hold down the power button with the eject button at the same time turn on the console in back while holding both buttons keep holding until disk ejects might take few times
