I believe you have the PS3's version of the RRoD, it's extremely rare (0.03%), but statistics mean nothing to the individual.

Either call Sony's support helpline (the number should be on their site somewhere) and ask them what to do/to fix it or take it back to the retailer you bought it from with the receipt and ask if they can replace it.

When i turn my ps3 on it turns green then it turns a yellowish-red color then blinks red what do i do?


Yes this sounds like the YLOD - caused when the GPU and the CPU overheat - you can send it in to fix but they will charge you for this. Or you can fix it yourself from home with a good repair guide.

My PS3 wont started up


Hey did you try a hard reset?
Shut the system off then turn it on.
You should now have the red light on the ps3.
Hold the power on and it will kick green beep then go back to red.
Then try to push power again.
If not it may be the heat transfer compound in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety percaution.
