Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Sadly it the YLOD its the ps3 over heating it a similar problem to the xbox 360 with the 3 red lights
Its normally down to the CPU or GPU over heating
If you have a warranty then that's the way to go if its out of warranty then you can either call sony around £99.00 plus vat they will tend to send you a referb, worth calling them first as some times they will honor the warranty even if it out by a few months
Or you can send it to a local repair normally about £65.00 - £75.00 normally comes with a 4 - 6 month warrenty they will tend to recommend an extra fan installed as well as the fix
You can try the fix your self there is some information on you tube just look up PS3 YLOD but beware if you have no knowledge you can make it worse
Hope this is of some help
