Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The day i bought it i put in rockband and it was working fine i go to put in call of duty 4 and nothing 30 mins later it just comes on out of no where the next day i try to turn it on and nothing so i switch inputs and it works the next day the same it wont turn on so i switch the inputs then it works and the next day same wont turn but this time switching inputs did jack i turn it on the lights are on the consule the no action on the tv
From everything I have read so far, all of you have what they call the "Yellow Light of death" (YLOD) or also known as the "Red Light of Death" (RLOD). Major hardware failure from overheating and the solder joints melt...a POS designn law from Sony that they don't seem to want to correct. I going take mine apart now. Will have details later

Sounds like your GPU (graphics processing unit) is giving out. Usually they just give out due to faulty solder joints or overheating, but sometimes one or more of the tiny transistors that make up any integrated chip start acting up. Try giving more airflow around vents and see if that helps, other than that, you will have to send it in or buy another motherboard for it.
