Playstation 3 won't power on?

Today I went to switch on my Playstation 3 by the power button and it went from 'red' to 'green to 'yellow' to 'red' and it will not power on. Therefore I am unable to play. I am running it through an HDMI cable. Please advise.

Yes this is the YLOD (Yellow light of death) to fix it you need to stop the heat build up getting to the main chips in the motherboard to do this you should use the recommended PS3 Repair guide.

You have major problems I'm afraid. You need to contact Sony about fixing it/replacing it. Just pray it's under warranty. You could equate this problem with the 360's Red Ring of Death.

You will need to have the motherboard reflowed. The processors have probably come unseated from overheating.

Playstation 3 won't power on?


Hello.
This is a hardware failure caused by heat. I have done TONS of research on this problem as I have a unit that is like this too. But I bought mine used. I hear that Sony will fix it or send you a replacement for FREE. I have been told by over 30 people that Sony did it for them. Just be honest and polite to the customer service people. Go to www.playstation.com choose your region, click on playstation 3, then Support (upper right corner) and there should be the contact information.
If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.
I hope this helps. Good luck to you!
