Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I had the same issue. I had to send it to PSR Repairs to have it checked out. They ended up replacing the hard drive & the laser lens. According to them, both those components contributed to the freezing up & inability to turn back on. Before I sent it in, I was able to get it to turn back on by holding down both the power button & eject button simultainiously. Lie it beep once, then double beep... Once you hear the double beep, release both buttons. A menu will come up giving you 6 options. Try option 3 first! you wont lose any saved items with this option. If that doesn't work, you will need to use option 6. This will delete ALL of your saved items, but there's a chance that you may not have to have your console repaired. You can retrieve trophies, games & demos from the PlayStation Store. Good luck! If I can be of further help, comment me back under this heading!
