Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi. Many users will refer to this error as overheating issues. This is not correct. What you are experiencing is an unfortunate hardware failure. The two components of concern will be the main cell processor board, and the power supply unit. You can confirm by removing the hard drive. Once the hard drive has been removed, kindly power up the system. observe it actions. If all is well, simply replace the hard drive. Now, if the system continues to flash yellow then red when the hard drive is removed, this will confirm the hardware damage. You will need to contact Sony for this repair, in this case.
If your unit is more than a year old, since the purchase date, this will cost $149.00 + shipping for the Sony assisted repair. If the system is only 3 to six months old, this repair will be free of charge.
