Sounds like the yellow light of death. Try this. Turn off the console. Unplug it for for a few seconds. Plug it back in. Turn it on.

Now when you push the power button, watch the lights. You should see the lights flash yellow, then blink red. If so, you have the yellow light of death.

I don't have a solution but when I first order my Playstation 3 when it first launched there were two versions of the big boy which were the 60 g and the 80 g correct me if I'm wrong the 60 g had a little flap on the front and the 80 g had nothing but the 60 g had a problem when it first came out like this but it was called The Lime Green Error or Death. I have the 80 g and it's having same problem please help
