Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When i turn on my ps3, 2 sec later a yellow light flashes then it shuts off with a red light flashing.
The problem of your PS3 is inside.. it has a problem on its power. it could be a wire problem or a current electricity problem so visit a PS3 tech. or else you might lose your ps3

This is very common in the fat ps3 models. It could be your power brick! But I will put my money on a cold solder joint on the GPU. If you can find a cheap power brick anywhere I would try it! There are fixes for this problem online but none will last unless you go to a professional and have your GPU OR CPU REBALLED. Sorry for bad news. I hope im wrong. Mine has just suffered the same fate after 2 years of repairs, lol. Cheaper to buy a new super slim and have a warranty. Good luck!
