You my friend have fried the motherboard!!!! Only way to get that baby out is to take the ps3 apart then take the blue ray player apart.. its a long process and you could actually break all of the ps3!.. I can help you out if you want but its no easy task and you had better be ready to spend a few hrs on it at least!
I do buy ps3's and would be more then happy to purchase your fried system and return your games! Let me know!

My ps3 turned off during game play and the light flashed blue green yellow and then kept flashing red and if I wait a long time and try again the fan turns on light god blue for one sec then turn a yellow...

I'm afraid you have gotten the Yellow Light of Death ( YLOD ) you will need to have your PS3 repaired by a technician or you can Google YLOD and you will find a repair guide.

When I turn on my PS3 on the light turns green then turns yellow and goes to a blinking red light. It does this every time and will not turn on. What do I do?

okay you got a notorious problem called the yellow light of death similar to the Xbox 360 red rings of death this is the same this is the same thing basically what you have to do is send it in to Sony to get it fixed or used just go there and search ps3 repair for a cheap and fast repair make sure that if you do use craigslist you don't get ripped of by easy fixes which don't last long to have a safe gard against this make sure that they offer warranty and are above 30 dollars they will also probably start that it isn't the "penny trick"

My console turns green after being turnd on,but them sudently turns yellow and starts blinking red

You have yellow light of death. Easy fix with hot air gun (heat gun). Just hit up the cpu and gpu for about 2 minutes going back and forth between the two making sure not to heat up just one spot. Google Ylod or yellow light of death and should bring up videos for you to watch disassembling ps3s and reflowing them with hot air guns. Gun cost $25 at most on ebay for a cheap one then go ahead and get some thermal compound paste for around $4 most.

Trying to play ps3, it turns on, green light comes on, then goes to red, then shuts back off

Sounds like you have what's called the yellow light of death. YLOD. This is caused by your system overheating and two chips on your motherboard being unsoldered. It's a somewhat easy fix if you aren't afraid of opening up your system all the way to your main board. There are video tutorials on youtube. I'm guessing your system is the backward compatible 60 gb CECHA01 model? Other options are sending it to sony and paying $150 for them to fix it. Or finding a local repair shop for hopefully cheaper. I fixed mine and it cost me $10 for new thermal paste, that's it.

Try to connect and external keyboard to it
with the external monitor.
If the shortcut is in the keypads where most off the beer propably came in contact.
will now be seen if its boots up.
If it boots up with external keyboard the ptoblem is in the beer soaked keyboard.
change or clean the keyboard with isoprophanol
to dissolve moisture and beer.
This is the solution. Please vote!!!
