As far as I know there is no immiediate repair for this system error. You need to call Sony. If it's under a year old they will repair or repalce it for free, even shipping!! If it's over a year old it will cost $150 (US) to repair or replace the unit including shipping.

Red light flashing/won't turn on


you are right about replacing the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and heat sync. the gpu and cpu may need to be refolowed also. another tip is dont over tighten the screws. Tip: keep your ps3 flat do not keep it standing. when it is standing and heats up the thermal compound can start to move away from the heat sync. Keeping it flat will help extend the life PS3 at least from the overheating issue.

Flashing red light and cannot eject game


PS3 has overheated and the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and heat sync need to be replaced. the gpu and cpu may need to be reflowed as well. Had the same problem and fixed mine. The thermal compound was pretty much gone when i opened up the system. Also dont keep your ps3 on its side leave it flat this will help keep the compound from moving as much.

Well when I turn on my ps3 the green light turns into a yellow light some people call this the yellow light of death after it goes yellow it turns into a flashing red light I try to repaet it but it keeps...


well yes obviously the flashing red light means that if u do not turn off ur PS3 it will die. but depending on how long u have had ur PS3, it may be becuase the life span is almost over.
if u have not had for a couple years it is most likely a manufacturing error
u should send it in to sony before the warranty is up and have them take a look at it
