Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
I can tell you exactly what has happened as I did the same with my PS3. The motherboard has been fractured and to fix this there is only 1 way and that is Discard that PS3 and go and buy a new 1 as it will cost you more than a new console to fix. Sorry but this is all that can be done if you want the cheaper way out as when I dropped mine it was going to cost me $476.85 AUD to repair it that includes the parts and labour as you can see it would be cheaper to discard the old 1 a buy a new console.

SOURCE: Nintendo DS Lite won't turn on.
Hi. Same thing happenedto my son's. Also, when I shook it, I could hear a slight rattle inside as if a small piece had broken off. I took it apart and found that a small surface mount inductor had come off (it was right by the on/off switch I believe). I was able to get it soldered back on and added some glue for mechanical strength (since my solder wasn't as good as original). This worked a while but it came off again and I could never get it to stick and function again. Just shorting the terminals with wire didn't work, it needs at least some 'L' impedance. So, I tried making my own. I took a very small wire-wrap wire I had from my old college days, and wound it around a paperclip about 10times, solder the ends on, and then removed the clip. (think of tiny spool of wire with each end connected to solder pads). Believe or not, it worked and has been fine ever since. Apperently the tolerance for this circuit is pretty loose. FWIW.
Good luck. A fun project either way before giving up.

OK I FIGURED IT OUT!!! First turn off the system(ps3) make sure that you take the batteries out of the remote. Then when you turn it back on go straight to system setting, setting accessories, setting blue tooth device. AND THEN IT WILL TELL YOU TO HOLD DOWN THE START AND ENTER BUTTON DOWN!. Don't forget to put the batteries back into the remote. It took like 3 seconds.

Hmm it could be a Hardware issue. I reccommend you phone the Sony helpline, they will help you through the process and if your lucky replace your old console. As you said the console is over one year old the warranty has mostly run out. But give it a try, they may still agree to replace your Playstation3.
