Hi Sef,

If you are getting the YLOD or yellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.

Causes:

The yellow light is caused by internal overheating and the main chips that take the damage are the GPU and the CPU.

You need to stop the heat build up and you will be able to get back to gaming again.

Solution:

You can either send the console back in for repair and they will fix it for you, however it will take about 4 weeks to get this done and it will cost about $150 for the repair!

Quicker Solution:

For a faster way to fix it you can use a good YLOD Repair guide that will show you with videos how to stop the heat build up and get back to gaming.

The important thing is to make sure that you get a guide that is up to the job!

I have put together a list of the best PS3 Repair guides and a complete review below:

PS3 will not accept discs


sounds like a product fault, is it still within warranty? id have that sent off and checked

or are there some kind of settings, one of the settings may be interfering with it accepting discs

what discs are you trying to use? if you are using genuine PS3 dics and even DVD movies wont be accepted then there must be a fault in the system somewhere

also, how long have you had it? less than a year and theres definitely a problem

i'll be honest, i aint a Playstation Guru, but this is what im thinking it may be, i may be wrong, if i am then dont hesitate to pull me up i am willing to learn ;)

My ps3 wont accept a disc. if i try it makes a loud clicking noise


If your ps3 is not reading your discs this is most likely because of the lens moving slightly off key, you can fix it yourself or you can send it in. The good news is that it is quite an easy fix.

Playstation 3 wont read game discs right


Your display settings might not be correct. go to settings then display.

If your using HDMI and your tv only accepts 1080i output then select custom and select this. But it sounds like your tv is only 720p so select that one.

if not then your laser has gone.

Hope this helps

Wont accept disc


Try this....after a lot of frustration and research, what i found on the internet for this problem was usless. I tried holding down the eject button for 15 seconds to reset the disc drive, still it would'nt accept the disc. As i literally picked up the phone to ring sony, as the ps3 was on standby i pressed the eject button multiple times and heard 2 beeps each time, still the system stayed on standby. After that i then tried just putting the disc in as normal as its on standby and the system booted automatically and accepted my disc. I hope this helps others, as mine now works perfectly.

Draive wont take discs


Hi Spooks,

When you put the Disc drive back together, the mechanism probably did not go togther properly. You have to put it together with a disc in the drive. It is very hard to get the disc player to go back together properly I know. I needed three hands to do it. I done one. It took me several tries, but I finally got it. Another thing, since you have already disassembled your PS3 and need to do it again, go to Radio shack and get some Thermal heat transfer compound, Replace the compound between the heat sinks and processors. The original compound dries up after about a year and will kill your PS3 completely if you do not do this. Good luck,I know its not going to be easy.

Psp


is it a scratching scrapping noise?

as some UMD cases, as in the plastic thing around the disc colapse or come apart this stops the disc spinning properly.

Check the plastic on the UMD... click any sides together that may be loose / or make sure the case isnt pushing on the disc.

Also open the PSP, hold it upside, gently shake it & blow into it.

Put the UMD back in & try again.
