SOURCE: Ps3 shutdown?
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..

With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

This is the Yellow Light Of Death, or YLOD. Mine has happened 3 times.
Basically, the solder on the heat sync has cracked. It can be re-flowed i.e. melted again, but it doesn't always work.
