Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 did the samething I noticed that everytime i'd reseat the hard drive it would stay on longer. In short I took the shell off disconnected the cables to the power source to the mother board and reconnected and tried it and been working every since. Note tho I wasn't able to take the whole shell off because I didn't have the little star tool to take off the front part just used a phillips head screw driver took of the bottom screws(under the square tabs on the bottom) off and opened the shell as wide as I could without breaking it seen the connections dis and reconnect and it workd after a year hope this helps coulda been luck or I stumbled upon an easy fix for R.O.D

Some recommend removing your hard disk and then reseating it as this sometime trips YLOD (yellow light of death) issues to get the PS3 working again. It's basically an overheating or heat damage issue and if this has damaged the GPU then aside from returning to Sony for service or fitting a new motherboard your only option is to reflux or reball the GPU.
