This is known as the yellow light of death for the ps3. This can be caused by dust buildup in the console, and the console overheating. Once the console overheats, it causes the solder on the board to melt. Once melted it bridges(connect), and shorts out the board causing the error your getting now. If you have had the unit for 3 years the warranty is probably out, but go ahead and contact sony with this site:https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_cAB96F84F-8DB4-2C4E-3368-C3B01BB770F5_k8997F39E-B8B8-B1EF-51B9-162937A6B113

Stand by light flashes red on powering up with remote and the green light flashes approx 15 or times before the screen illuminates.


thats pretty normal, it takes a good second or two to warm up and the display to turn on(at least0, you get the green flashes as you hold for on, 1 sec is a long time at times, lol, be patient, no problem with your tv!
