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.

Actualy it means that the Ps3 overheated and the saunter that was connecting the mother board to the chips has melted off. You could repair it yourselve or send it into Sony for a reapir

We work with these issues all the time, it is called YLOD. A Chip gets separated from the mother board causing it to shut off with a yellow light and 3 beeps after that. in order to repair that you must send it to sony or find a local repair shop that works with ps3.
