Basically the CPU and GPU get disconnected from the board and need to be heated in order to re-attach. I have not had this issue yet......luckily. But many claim this works. Sony charges $150 to fix it.

Take it apart.



Look at the bright side. The new ones are slim, and have like a 120gb HD, right? They're also $100 cheaper.

instead of using the power button to try and turn it on press and hold the eject button for like 15-20 seconds.
