Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
This is called the yellow light of death, similar to the red ring of death for the xbox. The yellow light indicates optical drive failure, and that component needs to be replaced. Sony can repair it, and I recommend calling them if you are still in warranty. If not, there are independent chains that do repairs on consoles. I had this issue a few months ago, costs around $130 to replace the part. Sorry :(
