If the light goes from green to yellow then off your
a victim of "yellow light off death " the primary cause
is the G.P.U. loosing connections from the main board.

The solution is to have booth G.P.U C.P.U. resoldered back to the board and a slight tweet to
the hold down bracket for booth Chip sets.

Easy fix with the right equipment ie reflow machine.
Sony charges 140.00 for this repair, little high .

Average cost for this repair should be 95.00-125.00
with a 90 day warranty. So shop around for some one local ,

Water inside the console


Was the PS3 running when it got water inside? If so, it's probably now dead.
Sorry it's not good news.

However, you could try stripping it down and putting the parts inside an airing cupboard, to see if that helps.

SWirly lines but no menu


Hi, this sounds like a hard drive problem. Try taking your hard drive out and putting it in another PS3 to see if it does the same thing. If it does, then your hard drive is damaged and needs replaced.Your hard drive is located on the side of your PS3, pop the cover off and remove the retainer screw and slide it to the front of the PS3 (pull straight out on some models).

This may or may not solve your problem. Turn the power off. Then, Press and hold the 1/0 button for more than 10 seconds. Then turn your PS3 off again. Turn it back on to see if it reset the problem.
Your PS3 Graphics engine processor could possibly be fried. Contact SONY Support to get an exchange. Go to www.playstation.com to setup service. Sony does not plan on releasing parts to repair shops, and I run one. I cannot accept PS3's consoles to repair until I can get a supply of parts. I hate to tell you this, but it is the straight up truth. Good luck
