Hi Mike,

Unfortunately what you have is the infamous "Yellow Light of Death". This cannot be repaired, from all of the research that i have done. I recently had the same thing happen to my PS3 (1st Generation).


When you press the power button the green light comes on, then immediately turns yellow, and blinks red, which results in not starting.

The good guys over at game stop might be able to give you $20 in trade in value, but no one can repair this that i am aware of.


None, (I will update post when I find out how).

How do we get the machine to start?

Hi,I dont know if this is eney help but I just bought a tassimo - coffee machine and it sounded just like you described yours,
I pluged it in,then I took the water container of the back where I found a yellow disc,(do not remove the bar code from the yellow disc other wise the machine wont work) I inserted the yellow disc where you put the t-pods,then fill water - container and put it back in place,then I switched the on switch on,it should show a yellowy orange light nexst to the silver button,then press and hold the button for 5 seconds and let go,the light will flash and turn green,then give it another 5 seconds then hold the silver button in again it should now despence hot water ,when water stops press the silver button again do this about 4 times,now your machine is ready to use,take the yellow disc out and put it back in the place you got it from,
now just put the t-disc you want to drink and have a rest.
I hope this was some help.

Hi i have a mfc 210-c & the yellow wont print , i get 3/4 dots i have tried to clean with no luck

Try powerful cleaning:
Press menu, then start black copy, then four times arrow-up quickly after another.Machine will be in maintenance mode
(all lights will flash).
Press 7-6-4 and OK (or start-black-copy).
When finished press 7-6-3 then start black copy,
printer will do a power purge.
Leave maintenance mode by pressing 9-9.
If this not help better think about new printer, because cost of repairing this one is profitable.

MY PS3 wont start up, everytime i press the start up button it turns green for a second and then quickly turns yellow and shuts off

That yellow light is what us gamers refer to as YLOD.. Its the Yellow Light Of Death. Your system will have to be serviced by Sony. If your system is under warranty still it wont cost you anything but if its not, Sony charges 150.00 dollars to fix/replace it. They will send you a box in the mail to send it to them. Turnovers usually 2-3 weeks. My condolences to you and your PS3. Best of luck to you.

Descale red light, wont go off, and can i use any delcale tabs

Solution: Just refill the water tank with water (no descaling solution) all the way to the "Max Line". Then run the full descaling program again --takes approx. 20 minutes. After the program runs completely you will get the yellow "standby" light on and the red "descaling" light will be off.

Next time you descale, be sure and fill your water tank to the "Max Line" before running the descaling program.
Hint: An incomplete cycle (not full tank) is what makes the red light stay on. In other words, it's staying red to tell you to run a full cycle (beginning with the water tank filled to the "Max Line"). Hope this tip is helpful!

Yellow light comes on to heat water, but does not change to green

I would try opening and closing the disc enclosure latch-- this triggers the machine to re-read the barcode and start a new cup of beverage. If the machine perceives that water needs to be heated more, the yellow light to should flash and the cycle to green when ready. If the water is already hot enough, when you close the latch, it will flip right to green.

Give this a try.
