Your Cell processor needs its solder joints reflowing / resoldering with a special heat reflow station. The issue is due to the machine getting too hot inside and causing the solder under the processor to crack.

Hi i hit the power button on my ps3,first a yellow light blinks then it beeps and blinks red,what can i do to fix that


PS3 Red/Yellow Light

If you are seeing this error it is because the GPU and the CPU have overheated and you will need to stop the heat to fix this. You can send the console in and they will fix it for you but it does take about 4 weeks to fix.

You can quite easily fix this with a few household tiems from home.

My ps3 turns green then goes yellow and then blinks red........ what should i do


sorry but it sounds like your ps3 has overheated. aka the yellow light of death. I have fixed about 5 different ps3s with the yellow light. but it WILL overheat again. you can do the heat gun fix if you are computer savvy. here is the link

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_Ic1_TY-GU

it will work for a few days maybe a week or month if you keep the ps3 super cool, but it will still be damaged.

ultimately you will end up getting a new ps3.( get a slim)

If it makes you feel better, I paid 699 for a launch console, it got the yellow light 2 days over the 1 year warranty and sony made me pay 150 to fix it, thats 850$ for 1 ps3 !!! They ended up sending me another ps3, THAT one got the yellow light too! they wanted another 150 to fix it. so i fixed it myself and sold it to gamestop for 150 and got a slim.

Red light of death


That common problem is the Yellow Light of Death and the Blinking Red Light on the PS3, which can easily be repaired from home (D.I.Y), rather than from Sony. I have also noticed that many others problems have arisen on the PS3, which can also be repaired from your own home! Click here
