Its either overheating or the problem is more severe. Call sony via the playstation website and explain the situation, thats if just blowing out the vents with compressed air then vacuuming the vent holes out after doesn not work. And remember people ALWAYS keep your PS3 WELL VENTILATED.

Sorry, but you have the yellow light of death. This is not fixable using ordinary household equipment. Call sony, yellow light normally means catastrophic hardware failure.

you got a YLOD yellow light of death when you get a yellow light briefly and then the red lights start blinking, you need to reflux the solder on the processors and apply heat to them, here is a link on how to do the repair, if you are not good at doing these kind of work, I would suggest taking it to a pro.

First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 if off (red light solid) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if this works, otherwise we'll try step 2.

Certain DVDs cause my PS3 to shut off and blinking red light


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.

If you think the **** player is causing the problem remove it and see if it turns on if not you could try another one and see if it works.
