I was on holiday for 2 months I am a bit lucky eh!!!
Ok you need a new motherboard.
FIRST take out your hard drive on the side and then turn your ps3 on.
If your ps3 goes to the main screen then it was a bad hd and an hd can be purchased at 40-75$ for 20-80gb ps3 hds!
If not you need a new motherboard it depends on the hard drive size!
40gb mbs are about 110 60 gb are 150 bc you cant find them anymore!

I can sell you a power supply if interested but if you get a red light the power supply is most likely still good. You may need a new motherboard.
