My ps3 will not turn off, it will not display on the TV and my controller will not connect to it. I can turn it on just fine and the controller comes on to but will not connect when i push the ps3 button it. It was not connected to the internet for 2 days so no updates was being applied, when i brought it home it would not show up on the screen or turn off, i tried resting it and unplugged it from the back once and it still wouldn't work.
Make: Sony PS3

How are you connecting the PS3 to your TV? HDMI, Component, Composite?
With standard AV component cable.
Have you tried the PS3 on another TV to narrow it down to either the PS3 or the TV?
Yes i tried on a Sony HDTV then a standard Vizio TV and still no change
Alright so we know it's the Sony. How old is the PS3 and was it bumped around or dropped when transporting it from one location to the other? This is really looking like a Main Board problem and their not cheap to get repaired out of warranty.
It was bought in 2010 and its a slim version and it was not droped or bumbed around
Ah, it's out of Warranty. Let's try doing a reset override. The Video tutorial on how to do this is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_X-gJv75wIw. Let me know how it goes.

This did not help
Did the screen come up at all after the 3 beeps?
No and it still wouldnt turn off
If that screen doesn't come up along with the beeps, that Motherboard is fried. Most commonly from a Static Surge somehow. If it's Hardware related, no magic button or tricks can fix it and will need to be repaired by Sony.
How much does that usually cost
Sony's flat rate is $150.
