Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When I cut on my ps3 it cuts right back off.What can I do to fix it?
HI, if you are getting a yellow light during this ordeal, i would suggest purchasing a mini cooler for this unit. it is overheating at this time. this will destroy your power unit soon. If you are getting the red light at this time, the power board may be already damaged.
In this case, contact Sony for a power unit replacement procedure.

You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow
Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an
overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips)
You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do
not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself. You could
make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The
repair process takes about 3 hours.
IT CAN BE FIXED
