Why won't my playstation 4 turn on or then back off

It turns on once and goes directly to the flashing blue light and I have no clue how to fix this but when I go to turn it back off the power button acts like it doesn't exist and I can't hit it again.

Is this a good question?

Hi Noah! Your console has what's known as the Blue Light of Death. This is a common problem with PS4's. Most of the time this problem is fixable but not always. the problem seems to be caused either by the APU chip or bad connections between the motherboard and APU chip. Unfortunately you'll probably have to have it repaired somewhere.

I hope this helps.
