The Problem

Open solder joints under the G.P.U. and some times the C.P.U.
almost identical to the 360's problem but much less common due
to a much better cooling system.

What not to do with your 300.00 console

don't take it apart unless you have some experience with
gaming consoles ( lots of little screws of different sizes )

A 10.00 or 20.00 repair guide will falsely leed you to
believe it's easy . IT'S NOT. even when you have the
right tools and skills it requires careful attention to a specific
procedures.

So if you want your PS3 repaired take it to a local shop
and check their reviews. 90 standered waranty and the cost
should not exceed 125.00 total.

That is the best advise I can offer you at this
time.

SOURCE: My PS3 turns off automatically right after I turn

Your console has overheated, I would highly recommend you getting it fixed by Sony direct.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

There is a DIY fix but I don't recommend you trying unless you're an experienced geek.

It wont turn on


This sounds like the "Yellow Light of Death". Does the console power on, flash a yellow light then go back to red, while beeping three times?

This YLOD is caused by excessive heat inside the console. Typically dust builds up and causes the machine to overheat. This damages the internal components. The good news is that a skilled professional can fix your problem.
