I spoke with the technical support people at Sony and they are going to replace my 40GB system. It was kinda funny because he told me that they couldn't do anything else over the phone and that it had to come in for servicing, then he told me out of warranty it would cost $149 plus taxes also thats when he mentioned about replacing the unit. Similar problem and I could be getting a new system. Sucks because I only had it for 2 years.

When i turn my game on the light turns yellow


If it blinks a red light this is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know). This is caused when the unit overheatins causing solder on the main board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

I was playing a game and it just shut off. It went to a red light on the left side. If I try to turn it on, the left light goes green, then yellow and right back to red and never engages.


If it continues to blink a red light when it turns off, this is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know). This is caused by the unit overheating causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

60gb ps3 wont start up.


Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.
