SOURCE: ps3 will not turn on
Your playstation is oficially broken and needs to either be replaced or repaired. Sony will fix this problem for $150.00 through their website(under warranty its free). This problem happened because it overheated and the soder melted to the point where the componets shut down and the unit went into safe mode :( :(

This is a very common problem with the PS3. It is known as the "Yellow light of Death", comparable to the XBOX's "Red Ring of Death".
Ina nutshell, a major component inside your console has failed and needsto be professionally repaired with advanced electronic equipment (mostof the online "do-it yourself" methods do not fix the issue, they ONLYbuy you some time).
YouCAN send it to SONY to "repair" for $170 (and you have to wait 5WEEKS to get it back!!), BUT they will only send you someone else's refurbished unit,so you WILL loose all your data.
With that said, we are able torepair any issues with thePS3 console (and any other console for thatmatter), in a quick and affordable manner. Currently our turn aroundtime is 2 days or less.
Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have.
