Hi, my ps3 is not working, it flashes a red light and when i try to turn it on a yellow light comes up and then turns off again.Thank you


You have got the YLOD (yellow light of death). The yellow means that there is an internal problem with your ps3 and the red mean overheating. My guess is that you have the older ps3 because those ps3 models have a designer flaw in the coooling system and if so your ps3 is most likely out of warranty which means you will need to send your ps3 to sony for $150(unless you can find someone to do it cheaper which is what I did).

Fixs my ps3? a red light keep falsing on and off and its not leting me take out my game


you probably have the YLOD(yellow light of death). Its an overheating problem. If a yellow light flashes then you have the ylod. To fix this either spend 150 dollars and send your ps3 into sony. Or spend 10 dollars, open up ur ps3 and fix it with a thermal compound where you can find at a Best Buy. If the red light just flashes and no yellow light, leave the ps3 alone, that means its overheated and needs time to cool off.

It comes on and a yellow light flashes and then it goes back off


Take the hard drive out of the system and then put it back in. Sometimes the yellow light comes on because the hard drive becomes unseated.

Try turning on the system and if the yellow light comes on, try another hard drive in the PS3.

If the yellow light still comes on then you know that the main board in the ps3 is bad.

This is the "yellow light of death" most likely indicating a hard drive failure.

This happened to my PS3 and we had to send it back. Luckily it was still under warranty. PlayStation replaced it for free and paid for shipping both ways.

PS3 Yellow light


There is nothing wrong with the PS3. I read in the users manual that when the the green light on the PS3 turns yellow or flashes yellow the PS3 is too hot and you need to turn it off. It has never happened to me because I keep my PS3 in a open area.

When the PS3 gets to hot you need to let it sit and cool for a little while and then you can turn it back on and start playing again. If the PS3 cools for a while and it still doesn't work you need to call Sony.
