It sounds like you're in the 0.3% who's PS3s have bricked. You have to get them replaced - either take them back to the store (if you have the reciept) or call Sony and tell them about the problem. They should have it replaced for you, unfortunately, there's no other solution for this, it's the PS3's version of the Red Ring of Death, but it a lot less common.

My playstation wont go to the main screen. i turn it on, and it blinks red, and then a yellow, and then back to red. wont even let me eject the game or play anything. what do i do?


Yep this is the famous yellow light of death or the red light of death. It happens because internally the ps3 is overheating, you can fix it yourself by using a good guide or of course you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

You can try the auto-diagnosis. heres how
Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system) 1. Turn on the system without a disc inside. 2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen. 3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again. 4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more. 5. Now press the circle button twice to return to the Main Menu. 6. Press the eject button on the front of the console, and insert a disc. 7. Now close the disc tray, but DO NOT reset the system. 8. Highlight the Browser option from the Main Menu, and then press the X button. 9. In the Browser, an icon of the disc should appear on the screen. Highlight this icon, and then press the X button to read the disc. 10. If the auto-diagnosis is successful, the disc should load properly at this point. NOTE: The auto-diagnosis feature will return to "Off" the next time a disc is inserted.
or try cleaning the lens and games
