Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Doublecheck to make sure the power cable is pushed all the way in to the back of the console. Also, try another power outlet and make sure to use a surge protector if available. You can also try the wet towel trick (I know this sounds crazy) - Get a bath towel, and soak it with cold water. Ring it out so that it wont drip, and then wrap your console in it. Turn it on, and see if the console will stay on - this process sucks the heat out of the console, so it will prevent it from overheating, if that is the issue. If none of this works, then it means you have overheated one of the components, and it is permanently damaged. You can probably salvage the hard drive from it, buy another ps3, and put your hard drive in the new one.
