It's not a power supply problem. I have the same thing happening to mine. You have a problem with your motherboard. Your board has heated up and the soder on your cpu and gpu has melted away and disconnected it from the board. If you are still under warranty, send it to sony and it will be fixed in 4 to 6 weeks. If not, you can still send it to them and they will charge you $150.00 to fix it in the same amount of time. You can also go on youtube if you want and you can look up how to fix it yourself (if you know kinda what your doing). If you do this it will void warranty though if you try it. And they also might not work on it if you do not get it fixed.

It's your choice. but 90% of the time it is what I have said.

"Yellow light of death" pretty much means you get a refurbished from sony or you have to buy a new console

I'm afraid you have gotten the Yellow Light of Death ( YLOD ) you will need to have your PS3 repaired by a technician or you can Google YLOD and you will find a repair guide.

My ps3 green light comes on stays on maybe 15 sec then turns back to red, with no yellow light in between


PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Red Light of Death' or 'RLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

I was playing music off PS3 HDD when we had a power cut for approx 0.5sec. Surge/spike protecter was fitted to power source, but no power back up was fitted. Error msg was on screen saying to turn off PS3...


This is a processor error. There is no way to get to the restore screen when you have the yellow light issue. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They are faster and cheaper than Sony!
website is www.cpr-nyc.com
Hope it helps!

Green light to yellow in 1 sec then blinking red light


Hrm, is it well ventilated? Is it in an enclosed space? Try putting it out in the open so all the vents can properly breath. If that still fails to work you may have to get it serviced. You can contact sony at:

http://www.uk.playstation.com/Support/PS3
or

Hope this helps. Also be sure to rate if it did or not.
