Either; if under warranty send it in to Sony.... if not then take it apart, remove the main PCB and check to see if there is ny heat paste under it (mine over heated and switched off). Also try taking it to a comms/data repairer to test the relays on the board.

Power went off suddenly and now my light is blinking red what happened?

Make sure the PS3 is turned off. Take out the hard drive from the PS3 and then put it back in. Now turn the system on and see if that takes care of the problem.

If that doesn't work then turn off the PS3. Hold down the power button in the front and turn on the PS3 in the back, it will make a beeping sound, once it does that then let go of the power button on the front and see if you get video, this will reset the PS3 to factory defaults.

If this doesn't work then that means either the power supply is bad or the motherboard is bad.

Playstation 3 power issue

Your system has overheated. If it doesn't get on at all anymore, you should get it fixed in the place you bought it from. That happened to me.

When i turn on my ps3, the background pops up but the menu doesnt appear, i tried to connect the controller with the usb port but nothing works. it doesnt do any thing, HELP!!!!!

Turn your PS3 completely off by pressing the power button and then turning off the power switch in the back. Your PS3 should show no lights. Wait about an hour to let the system completely cool down, then turn the power switch on the back on again. Now press the power button and hold it until the system beeps. This will reset a few settings and make sure the system is OK. Hook your PS3 up using the RCA Red White and Yellow cable and turn it on again, and you should be able to be back up and running.

When i turn my ps3 on it beeps and then the light turns orange then it turns itself off and a game is stuck inside

hold down the power button on the front of the ps3 and then as your doing that, flip the switch on the back and after you hear three beeps, let go of the power button on the front and see if you get video on the tv.

If you don't then next step would be with the machine turned off, take out the hard drive from the machine and put it back into the ps3. Now turn on the machine again and if you don't get the ps3 to turn on with video then try another hard drive in the ps3. If that doesn't work then its either going to be an issue with the power supply or the main board at that point.

Well, is this your first time turning on your ps3 to your tv, if so then what you have to do is turn off the switch in the back of the ps3 and then hold your finger on the power button, then turn on the switch at the back of the ps3, and wait for 2 clicks then it should set the ps3 to your tv.

Powers on and immediately shuts off

This seems to be case that the ps3 has overheated before the owner sold it to you.
Does your ps3 turn on and then dose it beep 3 times and the green light turn yellow and keeps on blinking. Or does the fan rev all the way up on the ps3. And does it turn back on when you want to turn it on or do you need to turn it off from the main power switch to turn it back on?
