Tips for a great answer:
It is basically a failure at the hardware level and is
known to have a huge impact.
Some of the theories doing the rounds on
what causes this specific error include power supply issues, lack of cooling or
heat dissipation leading to
over heating or
drive errors. Lack of heat dissipation results in a hardware failure on
Improper power supply is another primary
reason for the occurrence of YLOD. The general theory is that the console beeps
whilst throwing the yellow light and then the console gives out a red light
with the primary reason being over heat.
The probable reasons for this could be due to the
various temperatures the system would experience whilst playing games and
improper vents to provide the requisite cooling. Under such circumstances, it
is recommended to leave the system unused until the heat is dissipated and the
system cools down completely before turning it on.
Once you face the error, you have a few options
to choose from:
• Buy a new PS3
• Get your PS3 repaired by Sony
• Get your Ps3 Repairs by
There are a few temporary things you can do, but the over all will not last very long unless you open up your system... Your system needs to be cleaned.

1. First shut down the system by flipping the power switch in the back off.
2. Hold down the eject disc button.
3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.
4. When the green light comes on, wait a few seconds then tap the eject button a couple times. The fan will run on full power and the disc will eject.
