Urg. PS3 Help
Welp. My brother was on Netflix, went to turn it off, and the screen started flashing with a message saying "Connect controller to ps3 using USB cable and press PS button" so, I am a person to follow the directions and I did so nothing happened. The screen went black. It would not turn off. So instead of just sitting there pressing the button I unplugged because I thought I would rather have it do a system restore thing than sit there for 83 billion hours. I went to turn it on, it beeped 3 times and you could hear it start up (not the start up jesus noise, the ps3 its self, the car noise it makes like it was revving up) and it just sits there with a green light on. No, it doesn't turn yellow. At all. And it is not the connection to the PS3 because if you go to turn it off by pressing the button, it beeps 3 times and does nothing. I can press the disk drive button and it will eject the disk but it won't load up on the screen.
Your thoughts on what I should do? Should I just let it sit for awhile off and give it a break? I just got home when this happened so I don't know how long he was using it. Should i turn it on and see if it will ever start up? Has this happened to any of you? Thanks.

Just let it cool down a bit, or try to switch off the switch in the back then turn it back on. Also did you check your AV cables? (The yellow white and red cables) They might be loose.

this has happened to me before to, But it happened when i switched From regular audio and graphics to an HDMI TV. And when i went to plug it back into my non hdmi tv it did the same thing, and what i did was i found some reset thing on google where you press the power button 3 times then hold or some shit like that, i cant remember exactly. i'll go look on google.

I know the problem. When you turn the playstation on, if you held down the button, and it beeps 3 times, you set the video output to the standard settings. So if you use and HDMI cable, you gotta plug in your standard chords (red, white, yellow chord thingys) and then set the output back to HDMI.
