2 days ago i got the yellow light of death when the 2.50 update came out rendering my ps3 to a 500 dollar paperweight.
I contacted sony about my problem and my console is under warrenty so it would be fixed for free so it didn't bother me to awful bad
the are sending me a box right now but i have fixed the yellow lights on my ps3 myself and it works now without a hitch
What i did is i took my 120 gb hard drive out of my ps3, Slaved it to my cpu tower and did a full format of that drive
then i took my hard drive and put it back in my ps3 and it ask me for the system software 2.50 disk so i downloaded the 2.50 update off of the ps3 website installed it and boom my ps3 work like new
this worked for me so far and have been playing my console for 6 hours now with out a hitch
maybe this will work for some of u aswell

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.
