It might be because the console is overheated because of the size of the room maybe, turn it on and then press the power button wait until the red lights are flashing and then press it again and leave it for a few days :)

This is known as the yellow light of death for the Playstation 3. This can be caused by dust buildup in the console, causing the unit to overheat. Once the unit overheats, it causes the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once bridged it shorts out the board giving you the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is under warranty with this site: https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_c93291C5D-1FF3-3678-D410-B3A69FF1B950_kFEA57FF8-57E1-6CAD-825D-AD3606E0B84E
