hello. the most probable cause for a ps3 not turning on is broken power supply. my advice is to bring to your nearest sony service center. especially if your console is still under warranty. fixing it yourself might void the warranty. but if you still want to do it yourself buy yourself a power supply that is compatible with your console (40GB ps3=40GB ps3 power supply) here a link on how to open your ps3 http://www.llamma.com/PS3/repair/PS3_disassembly_tutorial.htm but remember, do this at your own risk. still the best way is to bring it to a service center. hope this helps
just install your ps3 demos on system use webbrowser on ps3 to download demos or store the ps3 canot be shut down by power button on system itself only from controller or turning back off then on hope this helps
if it does not turn on then its the power supply.. make sure you get a power supply matching your ps3.. the 60gb models have chrome like housing the 40gb have a dull grey color .. different wattage used means different supply is needed.. if you need more help let me know
