sorry to tell you but the yellow light means a complete hardware failure it has something to do with the gpu and cpu unless your good with circiutboard components and soldering, you will have to send it back to sony and have it replaced which is free if your ps3 falls under the 1 year warranty, from what you told me above sounds like you had a power surge wich blew the board on the ps3 i would suggest buying a surge protector for your tv and such to prevent it from happening again

My ps3 will no longer play ps3 games


If you are able to play Playstation 2 games, but not PS3 games then that means the blu ray laser has went bad. The lasers are a 2 part laser, The PS2 games take a lot less power to read than the blu ray or PS3 games, that is why you can still play PS2 games but not PS3s.
The lasers are a little bit pricy for these units, $60-$80 depending on which model laser is in your unit.
I recommend that you have a professional install the new laser in your unit because of the sensitive nature of the internal electronics.
One thing you don't want to do is damage the original blu ray drive mother board, the blu ray drive has Firmware on it that has to match the motherboard of the Ps3 unit or it will not play anything at all.
If you want me to replace the laser for you I can do that, just contact me and we can talk about it

Internet Problems


same problem for me, an update should be released soon to fix the problem. the game seems to randomly work at times however, so you can get lucky by keep trying. also there is a temporary fix. after going and getting stuck on the downloading game settings, unplug then replug your modem. after this the game should work for a few games, but you'll have to do this everytime you wanna play.

hopefully that helps, and hopefully a patch will be released
