The PS3 Yellow Light is the 360's cousin for the Red Ring of Death. My assumption is that you may have unintentionally blocked any sort of cooling the PS3 has. Here are some steps in correcting that yellow light. This information comes from HowtoFixyourPS3.com:

In order to fix your PS3 yellow light error, there are 3 things that you can do.

1 - Restart your Playstation 3.
2 - Check for loose cables.
3 - Unplug all cables, and plug them back in.
4 - Take out your hard-drive, and place it back in your console.

If these 4 tips didn't fix the PS3 yellow light problem, then it's high likely that there's something wrong with your hardware. In order to repair that problem, you can do 2 things. You either send your console over to Sony. Or, you simply fix the problem yourself while using a PS3 repair guide.

Ps3 turn on after 3 seconds red light flashes then press on button and red light stays on


YLOD known as the Yellow Light of Death. is a common PS3 issue. Where the lights start flashing colors, that means something internal is wrong. I had the same problem with my system and i sent it to videogame911.com they repaired my PS3, for less than the manufacture was asking for & with all my data saved. I was very happy with their service, hopefully you give them a try and are as happy with your system as i am now!

Why wont my ps3 turn on


The problem might have to do with a power thing maybe the power switch i mean maybe the power at your home went down and that causes the PS3 to basically be unusable, what i would recomend is to go and make a diagnostic to your playstation, im not sure where but im sure that if you google it you might find cheap places to see whats wrong with your ps3Good luck!! :D

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.
