Ok i went on to the playstation store and all of the sudden my playstation 3 turn right off so i tried to turn it back on n goes from red to a blue light that flashes once to a yellow to a blinking red

What you got is the YLOD (Yellow Light Of Death)

And it can be caused by overheating, where the cpu/gpu in up to 90% of the YLOD cases seperate from the board.
in some cases it can also be a faulty psu.

my guess is that your cpu/gps is seperated from the board.

And as i see it then you have 2 options :

1. if you still have warrenty i suggest you use it, and then send it to sony.

2. If no warrenty try this below, it does require tools, and some knowhow.
so be carefull if you wanna try this on your own.

if you dont feel like doing this on your own, then try search in google on"YLOD" and see if you can find any workshops near you, im sure thereis, since this is a commen problem now a days.

My Playstation 3 often freezes up after a short period of use. After that, it refuses to turn back on again, and its light flashes back to red from green whenever I attempt to turn it on. Either that...

did you try to force the pS3 reset mode? press the power button for 08 seconds and wait the system restart...release and wait it reboot...if the problem persists...try to change and install a new sata hdd and restore the ps3 system...see if your ps3 hdd is really ok...test it...Or could be the Ps3 Motherboard hardware problem...called YLOD...does your Ps3 light flashes yellow??

Good Luck!!!
