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.

Lights wont turn on a 99 silverado


Did you check for power in and out of the headlight switch ?
You should have power on the red and orange wires going into the switch and yellow going out to the dimmer switch.

I think my ps3 is broken because when i turn it on the light turns green for about 3 seconds then it blinks red, and i cant even eject the disc, can you please help me?


look even closer and it should be a quick yellow flash between the green and red lights its known as the yellow light of death and there is very little you yourself unless familiar with the internal workings of the ps3 with any luck you will not of had a disc left inside hope this helps and good luck :)

The receiver turns off 2 seconds after turning power on....red light blinks


have you got all the wires wired in correctly.have you extended your speaker cables and not insulated them(wires could be touching each other).maybe a blown fuse inside.although i think if it were a fuse,it probably wouldnt light up at all.my experience with my system is that if i wire up something wrong,the power button light which is a green light,will change to red to let me know something is not right.(its warning me before i blow something up)!!yours might be doing the same thing only flickering to let you know somethings wrong.If none of this helps then you should send it in for repair.Dont be afraid to open your system and look for a glass fuse(s) about 20mm long.if you find one and its blown,then you are lucky.a blown fuse is better than a blown system

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. ;)
