Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
I had the same issue, wasn't under warranty, sent it to Joegoods.com and they fixed it for cheaper than what Sony wanted to charge me.

You have a system failure. At this time there is no known solution for this issue. You may want to call Sony and get your unit replaced. Many spammers are posting links only for a solution, but I can guarantee that none of the info at those sites will help for this problem. If Sony wants the $250 to exchange your unit, I would do that. It normally only takes a week from the time you call them to get your refurbished unit.
Another thing you might consider is selling the unit for parts and putting the money towards a brand new unit or a refurbished one.
I wish you good luck.

This is called a System Error. It is about the same as the Xjunks ring of death. You need to call Sony if you haven't broken your seal yet.

Your ps3 has overheated. This is the equivilent to the red ring of death for xbox 360. The ps3 problem is called "yellow light of death" this means your ps3 has died due to the console being overheated. The solution to this problem is either getting a new playstation or take it to a shop in the UK and they could help you fix it for a price around £30-£50 GBP.
