This is referred to as the Yellow Light Of Death. There is no official reason given for this error but it is probable that it is an overheating problem. Google yellow light of death, there is lots of information about it.

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;
