Sounds like the power supply. Either that or the motherboard is screwed.

Replacing the PSU will help. Although these things happen for a reason, so something killed it. If you can get it back up and running I strongly recommend that you back up your ps3.

I would like to state that reflowing has a chance of failing. I advise people to reball instead of reflowing.
