Hi Melissa,

If you are getting the YLOD or yellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.

Causes:

The yellow light is caused by internal overheating and the main chips that take the damage are the GPU and the CPU.

You need to stop the heat build up and you will be able to get back to gaming again.

Solution:

You can either send the console back in for repair and they will fix it for you, however it will take about 4 weeks to get this done and it will cost about $150 for the repair!

Quicker Solution:

For a faster way to fix it you can use a good YLOD Repair guide that will show you with videos how to stop the heat build up and get back to gaming.

The important thing is to make sure that you get a guide that is up to the job!

I have put together a list of the best PS3 Repair guides and a complete review below:

Ps3 stopped suddenly working and red light blinking push the on/off button the light stops blinking and stays fix red push again turns green few second then red blinking again any idea what may have...


Hi Andrea.
What your experiencing is the the well known "PS3 Red/Green Light of death" which generally means a hardware failure or overheating. If it's overheating (2 Red lights) then it will automatically shut down after a while but from what your saying it's not overheating.

If you have it in warranty you have to send it to Microsoft and they will send it back usually 3-4 weeks or take it to a reputable gaming console repair shop (this will cost money).

But first check that your AV cable is properly plugged in (in this case all four RED lights are bleeping). If you're using an HDMI connection forget about this step.

So if you don't have a warranty then it will cost you about $150.
Another thing you can do is follow a guide and repair all of the errors with the PS3 including your problem. Click here for more information.

I have the red screen it says you have a serious problem


Hi,

This is similar to the red light problem but the reason you get a screen is because the GPU has overheated.

You just need to stop the heat build up getting to the main chips and you will be able to play your games again.

To do this you have 2 choices:

Send it in and they will fix it for you although something to bear in mind that it will take 4 weeks and cost you $150 for the fix.

Or you can use a good PS3 Repair guide and fix it yourself.

Ps3 turns off when you start system orange light flashes b4 powering down


Your PS3 has overheated and now the processor has lifted from the main board. If you want to attempt a fix yourself google "PS3 YLOD fix" and there are hundreds of home fixes for it but in my opinion the only permanent fix is to have the processors "reballed" which will restore it to 100% condition that you first bought it in. A "reball" will cost you approx £100 so its a bit more expensive than a "reflow" which you will see when you google the "ps3 ylod repair" but a reflow kit will only cost around £10 and may last for a few months and you can do it about 2-4 times before it will fail to repair it for you. If you can afford it get it reballed!

PS3 overheated - won't read dvd


It's a simple problem, your ps3 has overheated, so you need to get a fan, or get the once inside the ps3 fixed, if that doesn't help just send it to a repair station, either once is simple and doesn't cost mega money.

Playstation shutdown and the indicator light flashes red? when i touch the button it goes to solid red, when i touch it again to turn it on the light goes green momentarilt the goes to flashing red???


That is also known as the yellow light of death because of the momentary flash of amber color. The issue here is overheating, meaning that the processors have become unseated due to unit overheating and motherboard flex in hot conditions. You PS3 will need to have the motherboard "reflowed", which is a heating process that reseats your solder joints on the motherboard. A trained Sony repairman or Sony themselves can repair it, but it will cost ya. I do repairs of this type quite often. If you are savvy enough, and have the correct tools for the job, there are videos on youtube that explain how to repair the PS3. Good luck!

PS3 won't turn on


hi there king

This is more an amber coloured light and in the gaming world its known as the YLOD the yellow light of death,

You can send the console to Sony to fix for around $150 4-6 weeks of waiting time.

The More popular choice at moment is to fix it your self at home using a PS3 repair guide made by a professional ps3 repair man for the complete beginner costing around $30 - $40.

You can see why its more popular and why gamers are turning to repair guides everyday.

Go to GAMER FIX and you will find a full description of your problem, also Sony's details if you wish to contact them and the most recommended ps3 repair guide on the web.

You will get back to gaming with either option

Best regards
