Oh no... turn the console on YLOD.
i would be surprised if this action can break a fuse.
you only get the blinking red light when you start the ps3?, or dous it blink no matter what.
EDIT: your best bet is to try to measure PS6001 if it's faulty.
most wires from that ribbon are communication lines to southbridge and some to the syscon, but if a short on these lines can break a fuse?
there's a 3,3V also on that ribbon but a short there will probably result in a dead ps3 at worst.
if you are lucky it's just that fuse, else it's or a coinsedence or you have bigger problems.
