The yellow light means that you must immediately contact Sony support as this generally means death for the PS3. It is a defect most known with the 20GB and 60GB launch models. If your console is under warranty, Sony will replace it free of charge. If it is not, Sony will charge $150 to fix it.

I'm sorry that you have encountered this.

My playstation 3 wont start


There is nothing wrong with the PS3. I read in the users manual that when the the green light on the PS3 turns yellow or flashes yellow the PS3 is too hot and you need to turn it off. It has never happened to me because I keep my PS3 in a open area.

When the PS3 gets to hot you need to let it sit and cool for a little while and then you can turn it back on and start playing again. If the PS3 cools for a while and it still doesn't work you need to call Sony.
