Call tech support.. unfortunately you may have to send it in, sounds like the 360 version of Red Ring Of Death.

check your console and making sure those fans are not blocked off. If you notice a
lot of dust on the console, clean it off right away. Once you fix the blinking
red light of your ps3 and your console is working again, you will want to keep
the vents clean and unobstructed.find the hard drive on the side of your console and remove it. Wait a
few seconds and replace it. In some cases this may fix PS3 red light. If you
still see the blinking red light, there is a chance you have more substantial
damage inside your unit.Then unplug the console from the wall for about half an hour and then plug it
back in. This doesn't always work, but some people have had success with
problems other than overheating.

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...... u just fix this by using ps3 repair guide....
