I haven't heard of a PS3 getting so hot it bricks. If it won't turn on at all, you have no choice but to open it up to remove the disk. All of the "bricked" PS3's I have ever heard of, only has 1 solution......Buy a new one. There is no way to fix it if it's bricked. If you are not familiar with the term, "Bricked" means the system is completely unresponsive. No power or anything. I will hook you up with a link how to remove a disk from the PS3 with no power.

you have to do the video reset once you use HDMI the ps3 stays in HDMI mode till you do video reset

to do video reset:

when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) press and hold the power button till you hear the second beep then release and that resets the video.

hold power button............beep..............beep.......release, done.

you will have to open it up and take apart the blu ray drive to manually eject the disk, OPENING YOUR PS3 VOIDS ANY REMAINIG WARRANTY YOU MAY HAVE, also be very careful with the ribbon cable on the bottom of the drive, the ZIF connectors are very fragile and break very easy
