Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
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
