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!

I was on the ps3 network and all of a sudden it shts of and the red light starts blinking and when i try to turn it back on it turns green bue and then yelow and then continues to blink red


Possible that the memorry is corrupt or the processor has hung up. You can remove power for few hours and see if the device resets. If not you need to check the links below for some tips;

My ps3 don,t stay on it shows a yellow blinking ligth and then a red blinking ligth


The all mighty Red Blinking Light of Death. This in most cases is when the actually PS3 Hard-Drive or the CPU it self has taken a dump. Its the only two problems that causes this and 80% of the time it is caused by the PS3 being left on for long periods of time, or the Hard-Drive has taken a turn for the worse and has to be replaced. Hope its the Hard Drive, for one main reason.. its like a $40 dollar fix. The CPU can not be repaired, inless you wish to buy a hole new board/CPU assembly which that is around a $200 dollar fix.
