Hello Gdemon6 Here is a step by step instruction on how to fix this issue.
Firstly turn off your playstation 3 controller, insert the USB cable into the playstation and then the controller. Have a small pin to hand, when its flashing press the button located at the back of the controller to the top, next to the screw hole. It is a very small hole, go to settings in your playstation 3 menu. Under accessory settings, go to recalibrate controller.
Your playstation 3 controller should now be ready to use properly without any issue. Any further questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for using fix ya.

Power is on and menu options appearing but when you insert a game it doesnt appear on the menu so you can enter and play on it


Hello there, sorry to hear about this problem. This is unfortunately fairly common with the Playstation 3, it means the laser unit on the actual disc drive of the Playstation is having problems. Depending on how old your system is, Sony will fix this for free, or there may be a small fee. At this point you will want to call Sony at 1-800-345-7669, unless you want to try and replace it yourself. It is very hard to do though. I recommend you call them and explain the problem, they will definitely get you fixed up.

Please be sure to rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful. If you have more questions on this or need further clarification please just respond to this answer and I will get right back with you. So sorry you have to go through this, but Sony will definitely help get you fixed.

Thanks
Tim

This is a processor error. There is no way to get to the restore screen when you have the yellow light issue. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They are faster and cheaper than Sony!

Hope it helps!

this is whats known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know since the light is red). your unit will need to be professionally repaired in order to work properly. check with sony to see if your unit is under warranty at this site: https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_cEAAC34B3-EB87-3418-0E31-7DFCB50B79FA_k5CC13D12-5188-1981-F23C-95AE6A57CEE7


if your unit is no longer under warranty, go to www.wiredextreme.com. we'd be glad to fix this problem for you. all of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers the whole console, not just what we fix. we also offer extended warranties for up to 4 years at an additional cost. you can contact us at 214-222-5788 or support@wiredextreme.com

2nd controller not working


Hi,

Try this: Switch on controller 1 on, now hold down the PS button, now select Re-assign controllers and set this one as 1. Now turn it off.

Switch on controller 2 and do the same as above but Re-assign the controller as 2. Now power off.

They are both trying to grab the top spot at the same time.

If this doesn't work, connect that controller using the usb cable and do the same as above.

If the controller still has botth LED's lit when the usb cable is connected, then either the controller is faulty or the PS3 is at faulty and may have to but set back to factory defaults, do this first and if that doesn't sort it out then the controller is faulty.

Thanks

Ps3 will not switch on


Hardware problem. Usually the motherboard, sometimes it's the hard drive. You can use a few ideas from this guide:

http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&thread.id=3290911

but more than likely you'll have to send the unit into Sony for repair. You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY
