    Yeah this happened to my PS3 60gb from Jan 1, 2007.

    I'm sorry to say this, but as far as I know (and I've searched) It's Dead (They call it the YLOD -- Yellow light of death -- I didn't even know the damn system had a yellow light!) .

    You can get a replacement from sony for free if it has been less than a year, otherwise you'll have to pay sony like $150 for a refubished model (or so I've heard). Or if you have a store warranty, you could try to use that.

    I was lucky enough to have a 2-year full replacement warranty from where I bought it, so I'll get all of my money back.

    Good Luck

    i too have been cursed with the yellow light of death. i was watching a movie it froze like before when it would freeze i would use the power button to shut down and then i tried to resume my movie it came on green then yellow then blinking red. i tried everythign except for taking it apart then i broke downa dn called sony they said for me to send it in with 150 and then i should get it back. now i didn't ask what would happen with my saved game data or anything. maybe i should pull the hard drive otu before sending it?

Ps3 keeps shutting off, cant remove disc


This is probably due to the orange light error. There are three things that you can do. (1) Turn the console of for 30 minutes and try to restart it again. Sometimes the PS3 will overheat and give you the orange light error. (2) Turn you console off and you modem/router. After 2-3 minutes, power both back on and see if it works. This error is sometimes caused by interference with a wireless connection. (3) Turn your console off and carefully remove the hard drive and put it back in. It is unsure what causes this to work, but sometimes it does.
If none of the three work, you will have to have a major repair done on your console.

My PS3 keeps on rebooting. Red light keeps on


The only solution I can offer is your PS3 is most likely overheating. Make sure you don't block any of the cooling vents in front or back of the console.

Keeps giving me E2 not printing a paper will com e through when


If you hear the printer trying to grab the paper (you also may see that the rollers turn) but it does not grab the paper , means the the rubber that grabs the paper are dried, and should be replaced.

If the rollers do not turn (no sound either) then there is a problem with printer's mainboard.

Meanwhile (if you need it urgently) put more pages in tray to add volume (will press the paper to the rubber).
