Seeing as you can pull up menu and data screens i would say the problem lies in the DVD drive itself. I once bought an Xbox and did exactly the same thing. My suggestion would be to locate your reciept and return your ps before the warranty is void. They will either replace or repair the product but you may have to pay frieght costs. If u have lost receipt see an authorized technition.

Sounds like your system has a failure in it, that needs professional assistance. If you want your data saved you should try a place called www.videogame911.com. They do fast repairs and can save your data.
Unfortunately, if you did a full system restore without backing up your data, it's gone. Sorry, man. However, if you sign into your PSN account, you'll still have your trophies. I know it's not much. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.
There's a switch in the back, the only benefit of using the power button is that it can be turned back on with the controller. Dont use the switch when your game is saving or anything is downloading because you could corrupt the saved game/download (I don't think it'll let you turn it off from the front button when it's writing to the hard drive- the switch in the back actually cuts off the power.)
Re: PS3 turns off alone and red light keep flashing You officially have YLOD or "yellow light of death". I have had it twice.. I also wanted my data.. so I researched.. no matter what you do.. if you send it to sony its gone.. it cant be recovered outside of the ps3 or in a different one. I know a guy who will repair your ps3 leaving all your data intact for 80 dolllars.. he sells his service on ebay and if it breaks again within three months just ship it back to him and he'll fix it for free. If you want to know just PM me
Clean out the vents with vaccuum cleaner. If symptoms persist, call Sony.
This is because the PS3 software has become corrupted. Follow these steps to fix it but be warned, you will lose your saved data!
1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (Red light on)
2. Press and hold the power button, it will beep as soon as you press it, then again 5 seconds later then once more and turn off. Release the power button when the PS3 turns off.
3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, then again 5 seconds later, then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button when you hear the 2 beeps.
4. The console will now boot into the recovery menu. Do as the screen tells you and connect a controller up via a USB cable and press the PS button.
5. On the next screen choose option 5, "Restore PS3 system". This will then reinstall the PS3 software and cure your problem.
Hi, Hopefully this will help solve your problem: 1.Press and hold down the power button located at the front of the PS3 console, until you hear a first beep, then eventually a second – before the console shuts down, then let go of the button; 2.Now press and hold the button again until you hear a first beep, then a second beep then eventually a quick double-beep, then let go of the button; 3.The TV screen should now display a six option menu, where you can select what’s required, i.e. `Restart System`, `Restore System` etc. `Reset System` should only be used after other attempts with the other options, as your game saved data may be lost. If you play Modern Warfare 2 online, then this won’t be affected as your data is saved on the Sony Server. 4.During any of the above actions, your best having your handset controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cord, which includes pressing the `P` button when required (located between `Start` and `Select`). These actions should help solve `freeze` problems and others such as update errors etc – which restrict you starting up or playing your console. Don’t hesitate to contact Sony UK if required, who are very helpful. Their UK number is: 0844 7360595 Good Luck!
You have the yellow light of death (YLOD). You won't be able to turn on your old ps3 until you get it repaired. OR you CAN put your old hard drive in the new system then do the backup option from the system menu. It will have you upload the data to an external usb drive or Ipod or flash memory drive. Then put your new hard drive back in and do the system recovery option. Hope that helps.
Sounds like you have either played your playstation to much and it has overheated or your hard drive is messed up, easy way of checking, turn your ps3 on by holding the button on the ps3 but dont take your finger off, it should beep once, then beep again, then it should do a double beep, if this works a menu should come up, do number two, unfortunately all saved data KAPUT, gone, but the good thing is that your ps3 will be fine and working again in no time free of cost my freind, hope this helped
If you have any saved games, games, etc. Then you'll want to use the backup utility with an external drive to save your info, but BEFORE you restore your old files to your system, make sure you verify the problem is gone.
