2 days ago i got the yellow light of death when the 2.50 update came out rendering my ps3 to a 500 dollar paperweight.
I contacted sony about my problem and my console is under warrenty so it would be fixed for free so it didn't bother me to awful bad
the are sending me a box right now but i have fixed the yellow lights on my ps3 myself and it works now without a hitch
What i did is i took my 120 gb hard drive out of my ps3, Slaved it to my cpu tower and did a full format of that drive
then i took my hard drive and put it back in my ps3 and it ask me for the system software 2.50 disk so i downloaded the 2.50 update off of the ps3 website installed it and boom my ps3 work like new
this worked for me so far and have been playing my console for 6 hours now with out a hitch
maybe this will work for some of u aswell

I was watching a movie when suddenly the playstation turn off by itself and now i try turn turn it back the green light comes back but then it turns off after 5 seconds , whats going on?


unplug everything and then plug it back in. also wait a little bit and let it cool down and if it is on carpet, move onto something that breathes, like a wire stand. it may have over heated.

I have installed a garbage disposal under my sink (Badger 5). It is not new, about 2 years old. Brought it from my old house. It worked great before moving it. I wired it in myself. It works when turned...


Smoking electrical device is probably not good news. It implies electrical short.
Freely spinning cutter disk means the sealed motor bearing did not rust out and bind the motor.
Smoking disposal means minimum of melted insulation and overheated motor.
Overheated motors will slow down and stop working.
What caused it? Maybe moving disposal around loosened something.
Decades ago household items were taken to the electric shop and they rewound the motor.
Today metal and copper is landfilled or scrapped to other parts of the world.
I wrote ez disposal replacement steps from when I worked apartment maintenance, but you are experienced already.

I took off my front signals & past the rest of the wiring through the handlebars & made sure to solder them back together right! now my rear brake light is always on & I don't know...


The front brake light switch is located on the inner face of the right handlebar switch housing. If you have too much of a gap between the switch housing and the front brake master cylinder, the brake light will stay on continously. Move the front brake master cylinder outward on the handlebars snuggly against the right handlebar switch housing. If this doesn't not solve the problem, your wiring or the switch has a problem.

Good Luck
