Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi, this is a heat sync issue. Your GPU and CPU will need to be re-seated
as well. I have fixed this on my own PS3 as well as others.
You can also just change the power cord and connect it to another outlet, then clean the hard drive and put it again.

Well if a yellow light appear on your PS3 it usually means that your power supply inside the PS3 is dead and that it is now useless.
In these cases you have to call Sony and tell them that you PS3 has this.They will come to your place and will take your console.
After some days or weeks you will get a refurbished or repaired PS3 through the mail.
If you have a Game or movie stuck in the PS3 while it was still alive you might want ahead and tell sony that there was a disk inside the console.
If you have bought your PS3 with in a year ago the replacement will be free.
If your warranty is over though it will cost $150 for the replacement
Good luck and have a nice day.
Thanks for using Fixya.

In some cases this problem occurs due to internal board overheating.But in that case first the green light flashes then red light flashes.No yellow light.
In case of overheating the ps3 needs to be unplugged and not used for 24 hours.Then checked.But in your case the yellow light is also flashing.The yellow light flashes due to 2 reasons.
1) The failed hard disk of the ps3 .
2) The problem of internal mother board.
But still you keep it unplugged for 24 hours then recheck.
If your unit is still under any warranty then Sony service center will either replace or repair the unit for free.In other cases they charge $150 to repair the unit with this problem.You will have to send the unit to Sony service center and you will get the unit in-return after 2 to 3 weeks.
If you yourself want the repair guide and solve the problem yourself without sending it to sony and pay $150 then this is the link to repair guide.
