Disc will not eject and the power turns off as soon as you turn it on


If the 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....

It keeps turning its self off


This is an overheating problem.

Leave it off for a day and see if it works then.

Make sure it is atleast 4 inches away from everything, is not on carpet, and is not on anything that makes heat.

If it starts to do this as soon as you start te console up, and there is a yellow light mixed in there, then you have the Yellow Light of Death.

If it reaches that far, repost the question on here saying you have the YLoD.
