SOURCE: PS3 does not turn on. When I press the on button, red light turns green thne to yellow then to flashing red.

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.

SOURCE: when i turn on ps3

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.

Thanks
