Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Yep, sounds like you are facing some overheating problems (red lights on PS3). I'd suggest sending it in for repair (might cost you about $150 bucks) or fixing it yourself. It may not be working now but you could get it back working in as little as an hour if you follow the steps in this guide - YLOD Repair Wizard. I'd say give it a shot before you try any other options.

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

I don't know how to turn the system back on yet, but i can get your disk out. Turn the PS3 off by the switch on the back, hold down the eject button whilst the PS3 is still off, then (whilst still holding the eject button) turn the PS3 back on by the switch on the back. You should hear the fan start up and the disk pop out.

I spoke with the technical support people at Sony and they are going to replace my 40GB system. It was kinda funny because he told me that they couldn't do anything else over the phone and that it had to come in for servicing, then he told me out of warranty it would cost $149 plus taxes also thats when he mentioned about replacing the unit. Similar problem and I could be getting a new system. Sucks because I only had it for 2 years.

hi..Seems like your Power Supply went dead or either a faulty button..
Since those are touch pads those sometimes wear out. Another issue
could be due to overheating..

system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights
at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled
itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...... u just fix this by using ps3 repair guide....
