It seems to be the yellow light of death problem, but not completely. Try to unplug the cables of your PS3 but not the powercord (By all cables, I mean ALL, even the ones in the front), then replug them, it should help you. If not, then turn off the console, then touch the pad and keep it pressed until it beeps 3 times, if this happens, then the wierd screen appears, there will be some options, use the software update related one. Hope it works.

My playstation 3 wont turn on. the red light on


PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.
