    maybe a hardware problem, due to overheating.
    I don't know how to fix that, someone else might help.

    Sounds like a YLOD.
    Is it still under warranty? Send it to Sony for a replacement.
    If it's not, find the dusty heatgun and a youtube vid ;)

    based on that vid, it is ylod. send it to sony if still under warranty; if not, u'll need to reflow the motherboard.

    It's a long shot but is your hard drive in properly?
    I heard in some cases where the PS3 won't turn on if the HD isn't in properly.
