I have worked on PS3's for years the Yellow light is the GPU. You need to reball the GPU to really fix it right. You can reflow the GPU, but it want last.

It is probably an older model PS3, the big one. A lot of them have the same symptom of YLOD. Today it is known that probably capacitors are the problem. The rectangular black things on the bottom of CPU and GPU. You can try to replace them with other more reliable and see if it works! I see question is old and if you want information about what type of capacitors and how to do it feel free to ask for more information.
