Sorry for your luck, sounds as if your ps3 has ylod. You would either have to send it in to sony or find someone that can re-flow the system. Sony charges 150$ to fix it, local electronics repair person usually charges ~75$

Its called YLOD, the best and cheapest solutions would be to fixthis problem yourself.It would be much cheaper and faster then sending it to Sony for repair,or anyother shop who would charge anywhere between $50 - 100.
I fixed YLOD myself using the repair guide purchased from
here, cost me only $8
came with a video guide and pictorial very helpful!
good for DIY'ers like me!
Hope this is helpful!

This is known as the yellow light of death.(ylod) It's about 150 bucks to have it serviced unless it's still under warranty.It says in the manual it is an overheating issue.

MY PS3 wont start up, everytime i press the start up button it turns green for a second and then quickly turns yellow and shuts off


That yellow light is what us gamers refer to as YLOD.. Its the Yellow Light Of Death. Your system will have to be serviced by Sony. If your system is under warranty still it wont cost you anything but if its not, Sony charges 150.00 dollars to fix/replace it. They will send you a box in the mail to send it to them. Turnovers usually 2-3 weeks. My condolences to you and your PS3. Best of luck to you.

Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.
