    I got into contact with the SONY help center via 08705 99 88 77, they suggested i leave the system over night as it probably thinks it overheated, i did so and the problem persisted.
    So after another phone call they said they would exchange my console free of charge even though my warranty has expired, however i will have to wait around 3 weeks, as i have the limited 60gb model.
    But i was told my game saves would be lost as i had to include the hard drive. hope this helps anyone else with this annoying problem!

I'm afraid you have gotten the Yellow Light of Death ( YLOD ) you will need to have your PS3 repaired by a technician or you can Google YLOD and you will find a repair guide.

My ps3 won't show on tv but it show that it's playing


Are you saying that it has sound but no video?

Plug only the video plug (yellow) to the TV. Turn on the backswitch. When the red light in front is on, put your finger on the on/off button in front AND KEEP IT THERE. You will hear some beeps; don't worry about that. Keep your finger on the button until the front power light goes red again. This resets the PS3 video settings. Turn the PS3 on and the TV should pick up the signal.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

When i turn on my PS3 it as it starts up a yellow light comes on


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.

Wii standby light


To be precise, you can turn this option off from the Wii System settings -> Wii Connect 24 -> standby connection -> off

When this setting is swiched to off, your console shuts down entirely and there is a RED light on the power button. There will be no need to turn off the console pressing the power button.
