THIS CAN BE SOLVED IF YOUR PS3 IS OUT OF WARRANTY
The yellow flashing dot of death does normally mean that your PS3 is Dead but there is a way to fix it

My PS3 would not start and the indication light just flashed between yellow and red
Your options are: New PS3 £250, PS3 from Sony second hand £150 or £5 fix
1. Undo the screw below the warranty sticker in bottom of PS3
2. Slide the lid of
3. Remove all bolts
4. Remove all main components until the mother board is free from the unit
5. Remove the thermal gel on the back of the 2 main chips to the heat sinks
6. Clean any excess dust by blowing away do not use and dusters or leky equipment
7. Level up the m board and heat over all the board with a heat gun, needs to be really hot to melt the solder but not damage the board or components
8. Allow to cool and turn over repeat the above
9. Buy some thermal gel online and replace the gel removed of the chips using a credit card
10. Once cool after 15 to 20 mins replace all the components and PS3 Lid
11. Run a fan test on your ps3 (turn of at the back hold down the eject disk button and turn back on keeping the eject disc button held down until fan starts)
12. Turn you ps3 on and bam your back on COD or FIFA (add wadhapa)
Hope this is of some help but this is only recommended if your PS3 is out of warranty and you are not sending it back for a Second hand Sony one

    Hi,

    I agree that would be there. Ps3 dead doesn't mean that it would not even show lights.This means that there is a serious software corruption. This can only be rectified by Sony.

    Thanks.
