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: ps3 will not turn on
Your playstation is oficially broken and needs to either be replaced or repaired. Sony will fix this problem for $150.00 through their website(under warranty its free). This problem happened because it overheated and the soder melted to the point where the componets shut down and the unit went into safe mode :( :(

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.
