Followed this method in tandem with a Wikihow (for the disassembly procedure -- I discovered this guide after I'de started taking it part). When I plugged the PS3 in again I had a solid red light and touching the power switch at the front wouldn't allow me to turn the machine on. Fortunately, partially inserting a disc into the tray caused the machine to spring into life. Seems I've broken the front power button somewhow, but the good news is that the PS3 is usable and stable again. I can power on and off with the controller and the eject button is still responsive to input. Been using for a few hours now without issue.
