Sorry to hear of your troubles, if its any consolation you can probably strip the PS3 of its PSU and sell that for a bit assuming that's not the problem.
You could also extract the laser/lens if its good that should get you $40+ depending on which model it is.
Failing that you could sell the whole thing, maybe someone can reball it or fix whatever problems your console has.

I had the red light on my first ps3 i got on ebay. They sent me a new one for free, haven't had a problem since a couple years back.
