You have the Yellow Light of Death, (Similar to the Red Ring of Death for Xbox 360). There is no fix available to the public. The only way to fix it is to send it in to Sony for about 150 dollars.

Nintedo Ds Wont turn on! Even if Charged!


Does the yellow light come on when charging? Could be that the fuse for the charging circuit has gone, or on of the screens has been damaged. If it's only 4 months old and not been dropped etc, send it back to Nintendo I'd have thought.

YELLOW LIGHT????????


You have the "yellow light of death". Your system needs to be repaired. There are no work arounds or home remedy you can use that will fix the console. Call Sony customer support.

Flashing red light and disk wont eject


Im afriad your going to have to buy a new playstation3 console. Sony no longer produce 60Gb consoles and they will not replace or repair your console. Im guessing youve had your 60Gb for over one year so theres no warranty.
Sad to say but you have to buy a new one. eBay have some good offers. ;)

It's likely that you are a victim of poor design. Your problem is referred to as the Yellow Light of Death or YLOD.

My first ps3 did the same thing. From Sony, this is a heat sensor issue that is a problem with the ps3. The system thinks it is overheating so it wont turn on. If the system is new or you bought the extended warrenty take it back to the store, if not, contact sony directly and ship it back to them, they will have to fix it. This sucks, i know, sorry to hear it happened to yout too. Good luck
