Are you on or out of warranty?

The issue is most likely the blue ray drive, its not cheap to replace, you could try a blue Ray lens cleaner and see if it helps.

Use a blue ray lens cleaner or canned air, canned air could make the problem worse though if there is a lot of dust inside.

If your on warranty it would be best to contact sony to get the machine repaired especially if a lens cleaner doesn't do the job, also don't use a cd or dvd lens cleaner, it has to be a blue ray lens cleaner.

Outside of warranty the repairs are 150usd, the blue ray drive costs around the same price, so replacing the drive yourself is not much better. Of course you could take the machine apart, take out the drive and clean it with alcohol.

The video is for ps2 but its basically the same thing, note that taking the machine apart voids your warranty so you don't want to do it unless your outside of warranty.

Hi Sef,

If you are getting the YLOD or yellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.


The yellow light is caused by internal overheating and the main chips that take the damage are the GPU and the CPU.

You need to stop the heat build up and you will be able to get back to gaming again.


You can either send the console back in for repair and they will fix it for you, however it will take about 4 weeks to get this done and it will cost about $150 for the repair!

Quicker Solution:

For a faster way to fix it you can use a good YLOD Repair guide that will show you with videos how to stop the heat build up and get back to gaming.

The important thing is to make sure that you get a guide that is up to the job!

I have put together a list of the best PS3 Repair guides and a complete review below:

Hi Scooter,

I run a repair shop called the Playstation Clinic. We stopped accepting PS3 consoles as the parts are not available. The returned PS3 consoles are not much good due to scavenge parts from as they have the same Problem with the Graphics Engine Cooling. I am guessing your PS3 has the same fate. It is currently near impossible to contact Sony through the phone. Contact Sony for warranty Claim on the website
