Yes this is the YLOD the (Yellow light of death) it happens when the GPU and the CPU overheat and you will need to fix this by stopping the heat build up, you can sned it in and they will fix it for you for $130.

Or you can fix it yourself using a good PS3 Repair guide in under an hour!

This is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know because it blinks a red light). This is caused when the unit overheats causing solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect).
