Hello, unfortunately this is called YLOD (yellow led of death) it is reported to happens on phatty PS3. There are few guides online with DIY methods to get rid of it, but you must have good soldering skills and understand that you might compromise your console even more. If you don't have the above mentioned skill, then the best and safest solution for YLOD is to call Sony support. If you still have warranty coverage, the fix will be for free, if you're out of warranty then they usually ask about 120/140 USD, but they'll give a 3 months warranty. Good luck anyways Peter

PS3 switched off mid game, red light illuminated, touched on sensor green light illuminated for about 5 seconds then went back to off, red light again.


If the system flashes both the red and green light together, making a sort of yellow color, the system has overheated, and one of the main chips has become defective or detatched. This problem is known as the "Yellow-Light-Of-Death". If the system is still under warranty, contact Sony, and they should replace or repair it for you. If not, they will still repair it, it will just cost more, if the warranty seal is still intact. Hope this helps!

When turned on light remains green for a few second and then turns yellow.


Does the lights blink red after turning yellow? If so, you have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself. You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.





IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?



If you have a unit that is not backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you

can retrieve your disc.



Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject'

button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test

and eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the

backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.
