PS3 yellow lite of death

What is your question about the YLOD? Typically, it happens for different reasons. Check your A/V connections. If they are not connected, you'll get the YLOD. 2, it has over heated, and has to be taken apart, heated by a heatgun to reform the solder, then new heat gel put on between the board and the cpu/gpu. Pretty easy really. Here is a youtube vid to get you started.

Dear fixya experts. i have YLOD yellow light of death on my playstation 3 console i tried to fix it with heat gun,but it wouldn't work.i fixed 2 YLOD before with heat gun,but this one isn't

the 3 most common causes are.
1. overheat (the prossesor comes loose as on some models the solder used was low grade)
2.hard drive fail
3.laser dismount (ussually caused by moving the console with a disk in)

1.hold the on button for 5 seconds then turn on
2.remove hd and hoover console as much as possible
3.remove hd and drop from a height of 4-5 inches onto carpet to loosen needle sony a new one a xbox 360 (obviously the best option ;0) )

hope this helps but in most cases the ylod is a pay to get fixed solution

My playstation won't turrn on and it wont let me take the disk out

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.
