Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
After the green a faint yellow light comes on for a millisecond then it shuts off and blinks red. I also have my game cod5 still in it so now I can't eject it. The first time it turned off was when I was playing cod5 for about 30-50 minutes then it just shut off on me. I called sony for a solution but it didn't work. they said to try plugging it into a different power outlet but nothing happened.
Go on youtube and search for Gilksy. he has an option of not paying sony 150 bucks for a refurb unit. This does work if the problem is in the motherboard. follow his 6 videos and you should be ok if you do it right.
DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. it may not work because the problem may not be in the motherboard. But if your out of warranty it wont hurt to try and if it fails you can still call sony and pay 150 for the refurb unit.

The yellow light, from what I have read on the Playstation message boards, is a system failure. Although some have said it refers to the Playstation overheating, that is not what it means. Unfortunately, Sony will have to fix it for you or send you a new system as long as it is under warranty.
