Hi, my ps3 was working fine then turned it on yesterday and there isnt any menu on the screen and the controllers dont work and when u put a game in nothing happens. regards mark


Hi Mark,

If you are getting the YLOD oryellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.

Causes:

The yellow light is caused by internal overheating and the main chips that takethe damage are the GPU and the CPU.

You need to stop the heat build up and you will be able to get back to gamingagain.

Solution:

You can either send the console back in for repair and they will fix it foryou, however it will take about 4 weeks to get this done and it will cost about$150 for the repair!

Quicker Solution:

For a faster way to fix it you can use a good YLOD Repair guide thatwill show you with videos how to stop the heat build up and get back to gaming.

The important thing is to make sure that you get a guide that is up to the job!

Fixs my ps3? a red light keep falsing on and off and its not leting me take out my game


you probably have the YLOD(yellow light of death). Its an overheating problem. If a yellow light flashes then you have the ylod. To fix this either spend 150 dollars and send your ps3 into sony. Or spend 10 dollars, open up ur ps3 and fix it with a thermal compound where you can find at a Best Buy. If the red light just flashes and no yellow light, leave the ps3 alone, that means its overheated and needs time to cool off.

Ps3 wont start


sorry for your luck, sounds as if your ps3 has ylod. You would either have to send it in to sony or find someone that can re-flow the system. Sony charges 150$ to fix it, local electronics repair person usually charges ~75$
