bad power supply unit IF you can hear it clicking. You should be able to hear clicking coming from the LEFT side of the PS3.
here's a link to fix it yourself, disassembly required.
Mine just broke today as well, confirmed what it was with the above links.

This is a heat sync problem. Your CPU and GPU will need to be re-seated as well. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

SOURCE: PS3 Console not Switching on
Thanks for dropping a line Mr. Bug_wired. SP Road is so big to find the named shop. Any landmark or address to find it out. In fact I checked in National Market, there are many shops who repair PS2 but they dont do PS3. I would like to try my luck in SP Rd.

If ur ps3 console wont start up....then the things to check are>>> 1.check ur
power cable 2.check whether u have inserted the disc properly and precisely.
3.check the insertion of memory card... 4.check the video port.......
checking 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......
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.
