Hey there Ouch, you know i had this problem not long ago, You can fix it yourself but this will be a warranty void
If you contact Microsoft, they will fix it for you for free since this a problem by them and was not coursed by you.

SOURCE: 3 redlights aka ring of death

HI there, This is usually caused by the system over heating. What happens is the Graphics Processing unit, Central processing unit, Produce to much heat and warp the motherboard causing the Lead free solder to crack/break looking there connections.  If you're still under the 3-year warranty please contact microsoft for Repairs...  Things to keep in mind with the 360 console would be...  Console has to be kept in an open area with good air flow and not on carpet or in a place that will slow ventilation (inclosed entertainment centers).  Power supply also needs good air flow and vents should be kept clean of dust. I hope this helps and good luck

SOURCE: i've had 3 ring of death then get 2 rings

Make sure that you have the correct space between the motherboard and the heatsink,are both the nylon and steel washers still in place.
when you screw the motherboard to the chassis, tighten all the screws, then un-tighten each screw by one full turn,if that dont work, un-tighten each one by half a turn until it does, this is because you might be making the motherboard bow, it needs to be flat.
Dont forget thumbs up if this works.

SOURCE: sony ps3 getting the yellow light of death is it

The Yellow Light of Death (YLoD) is a fatal error that occurs when your Playstation 3 (PS3) overheats.
The welds that connect vital components to the system board soften and break.

It's manifestation - a blinking yellow light on a PS3 that refuses to do anything else.

You have 2 options at this point:

  1. Return the unit to Sony.

    if your PS3 is still under warranty, the fix will be free; otherwise, Sony will charge a flat fee of $150.

  2. Fix it yourself for less than $80.

    This list contains the necessary tools and components to effect your PS3's meteoric rise from it's YLoDic grave as set forth in this free YLoD Repair Guide.
