Question about Sony PS3 PlayStation 3 80GB Blu-Ray Game Console
It started overheating some months ago so when I opened in and cleaned some dust out of it, it stopped working. When it is powered on now, there is only a green light,there is no connection of the controllers, the blue ray light doesn't start even if there is a disk inserted into it and the HDD access light and Wi-Fi lights don't come on or even blink.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Sounds like the PS3 is bricked. Try using the recovery menu, Directions here: http://www.xtremeps3.com/2009/01/28/how-do-i-access-the-playstation-3-recovery-menu/

Sounds like an overheating issue to me. Make sure to keep it in a well ventilated area. Also, the next time you turn it on, put your hand near the vents to see if any hot air is being expelled through them. If there is NO air being expelled, you have a bad fan. It may also be that the heatsinks aren't conducting enough heat from the processors...this could be due to bad thermal paste. You may need to send it in for repair for this you can call 1800mysony.
I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!
Thank you for choosing FixYa!

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.
