Yes this is the yellow light of death it means that you have a hardware error all you need to do is stop the heat build up on the chips. You can use a good repair guide or send it in.

When I turn on my ps3 model cechg01, it blinks the green light a couple times then shuts itself off. No other color lights just the green one, then beeps three times and shuts off.. Can anybody help narrow...


When you plug in your system with the power cable and turn the toggle switch (in the back) do you see the red stand by light?

The red and yellow light comes from 1 bulb and the green and blu light comes from another..

If you have the YLOD and your yellow/red light is out, you will only see the green light.

I am really interested in your problem.

Do this to check your status: If you can do this function below but not any other, chances are, you do have the YLOD. It can be fixed.

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 should 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.

My playstation 3 just went off and now it wont come back on, the light goes green but then the red light flashes and it wont turn on


Yes, this is sometimes called the YLOD because of the way it flashed yellow before it goes to the red light.

Well you can fix it yourself using a good guide or you can send it in to be fixed.

We have a 2007 Palamino Yearling Model 4101 Pop-Up Camper and recently it was vandalized and the wires from the camper to my vehicle were cut and destroyed so we have to replace the vehicle end plug to the...


Is this a six way plug (six round holes)? If there are six wires coming from the trailer, then the color code should be as follows:

White - Ground
Brown - Tail Lights
Yellow - Left Turn
Red - Stop
Green - Right Turn
Blue - Auxiliary Circuit (Battery Charge, Electric Brakes, etc...)

If you open the plug up that was cut, it is labeled as to which goes where.
TM = Tail Lights
RT = Right Turn
LT = Left Turn
S = Stop
G = Ground
Center = Auxiliary
