Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When I turn it on there is a yellow light that appears and then the whole system turns off.
Tips for a great answer:
Hello there moses
If you have the brief
flashing yellow light, then its followed by a red blinking light then
you have the yellow light of death AKA the YLOD.
The lights are a
warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the
quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the
PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the
solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time
this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose
connection with the motherboard and you get the YLOD.
WHERE TO GO FROM
1 - Call Sony
In warranty the Price
is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150,
the whole process is 4-6 weeks
You can call Sony and
they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back
2 - Fix it your Self
You can use a PS3 fix
manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you
probably already own.
