It is VERY similar to the Xbox 360 RROD.

CLICK HERE for a great tutorial that worked for me. (FREE registration required - then use the search function for "PS3 Yellow Light")


P.S. you can also send it to sony. 4-6 weeks, and $150 later, you will have your unit back.

Good day, i have a playstation 3, 80gb the yellow light keeps coming on and i am unable to play , is there anything i can do to fix it

Hi sistad_04!

Sadly the yellow light means that there has been irreparable damage done to you console and that it can't load propperly without overheating. The reccomended way to fix this is by contacting sony technical support and get it fixed or replacing the system. Any attempt to fix it yourself will void the warranty.

Sorry about the inconvinience.

yellow light means your ps3 is wrecked $40 dollars or $50 to fix at the flea market if your ps3 is around 2 or more years old i would suggest buying a new one because the laser will probaly burn out soon

You have the "yellow light of death". Your system needs to be repaired. There are no work arounds or home remedy you can use that will fix the console. Call Sony customer support.
