Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When I go to turn on my ps3, I get a green then yellow then a flashing red light that is all it does
This is called a System Error. It is about the same as the Xjunks ring of death. You need to call Sony if you haven't broken your seal yet.

HI I have the solution for you for now don't remove the hard drive or open the unit to remove your game and I promise everything is there your will get it back if you follow my instructions your ps3 for now is dead is the similar problem with the xbox360 but there is a solution for both units what had happen is that the graphics card got hot and broke some of the connections under the chip and the only solution is to reflow the unit with a system that is controlled by computer this way nothing outs gets damage 90% of the ps3's can be repaired I have fix 10 units out of 12 last week so if you have a game inside don't worry you get it back and also you can recover your info in your hard drive I am a trusted ebay power seller I don't offer this service on ebay I use the system for my own units and for people on this web side you can get more info on ebay just type in playstation 3 reflow and you will see more sellers who do the same as me but they charge 65-75dls plus shipping I charge 70 dls plus shipping only one way I payd for return shipping ebay sellers who offer this service they ask you to pay shipping for both ways so if you want to see your unit up and running let me know I am located in Georgia

SOURCE: ps3 will not turn on
Your playstation is oficially broken and needs to either be replaced or repaired. Sony will fix this problem for $150.00 through their website(under warranty its free). This problem happened because it overheated and the soder melted to the point where the componets shut down and the unit went into safe mode :( :(

Your ps3 has overheated. This is the equivilent to the red ring of death for xbox 360. The ps3 problem is called "yellow light of death" this means your ps3 has died due to the console being overheated. The solution to this problem is either getting a new playstation or take it to a shop in the UK and they could help you fix it for a price around £30-£50 GBP.
