    Thank you, I called them and they did tell me to send it in for repair. My ps3 was a launch system, so the warrenty has expired, $150 is what they are charging me and now I will be without my system for a month (this sucks!) I hope it doesn't happen again! I have well over $2000 stuck in my system with hardware and software! I still have my original ps and ps2, still both work, uugggh! But seriously, thanks for the help.

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.

Will not power up, red light goes green flashes yellow then stays flashing red


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony and they will send you a new or refurbshed one. Your ps3 is one in a billion (according to Sony). North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721
