Hi,

Look at the Video :-

This is unrepairable. You need to call Microsoft to get it replaced. Would cost around $100.

Note - If the set would be under warranty, would be replaced without any charge.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My ps3 has ylod and i cant get my game out is there any way i can open it.


Assuming it is one of the older style ps3's you can usually get it out without opening up the machine:

1. First shut down the system by flipping the power switch in the back off.

2. Hold down the eject disc button.

3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.

4. When the green light comes on, wait a few seconds then tap the eject button a couple times. The fan will run on full power and the disc will eject.

Playstation 3 will not read the game disk but will


Hi there,

Try the steps mentioned below and the PS3 will work with the games disks as well;
1) Restore your PS3 to deafault settings under System Settings
2) Hold down the power button for several seconds until the light goes from red to green to red. Once it turns back to red, let go.
3) Finally, Hold down the power button again untill you hear 2 quick beeps... a few seconds. This will repair any damaged sectors in your HD.

I connected my playstation 3 to another tv and it


If you attached your PS3 to an HDMI capable TV it asks you if you want to switch to HD Mode.

However, once you attach it back to a regular TV you get no picture.

Follow these steps to resolve:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can flick the power switch in the back then back on again.

2. With your PS3 connected to the TV and the TV on, press and hold the power button.

3. Hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release.

4. Wait a few seconds and the PS3 logo should appear.

When I turn on my PS3 the light flashes green 3 times then yellow twice then red. It won't eject the game disk. I've tried holding the eject button for up to 30 seconds without success.


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony. North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721

It's likely that you are a victim of poor design. Your problem is referred to as the Yellow Light of Death or YLOD.
