SOURCE: Keeps going to quit screen
it could be that someone pushed the button in too hard and it wont pop back up because even if you lightly touch it, it could go to that screen

this happened to mine it got a bit of moisture in it and pressing home made the screen go black.
i opened it up and pulled the strip out that connects the buttons to the circuit board , cleaned the connections and it worked

Unfortunately what you are describing is known as the Yellow Light of Death (YLOD). This indicates a general hardware failure normally due to overheating. When these PS3's were produced Sony decided to use lead free solder. The problem with lead free solder is that it is not as flexible as leaded solder but it is cheaper and more environmentally friendly. When the console gets hot and cools down hairline cracks appear within these solder joints and a good electrical contact cannot be made. This then causes the console to fail. It could be on a number of different components including the CPU, GPU or memory. There is a temporary cure that may or may not work but ultimately the console will need to be repaired professionally or replaced. If it is out of warranty Sony will not replace it but will offer a refurbished unit for around £130. If you look on Youtube for Yellow light of death fix there is a way that you can re-heat the solder joints using a heat gun but if you are not confident taking apart electrical items then this really may not be something you want to try.
I am sorry I cant give you any better news but unfortunately it is a very common problem with the PS3
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa
