It's the first simptom of overheating.
Eventually it will fail complete and would not even turn on anymore (goes green-yellow-3 beeps and flashing red). at the point there is nothing you can do anymore.
Send it in for repairs or if you do not have warranty open the console and replace the thermal compound of the main processors. It may help

Guys i've already done the reballing thing on my ps3 but everytime that i want to turn on my ps3 always come the yellow light.. then the ps3 turn off again... but if i repeat this turn on/off thing...

What it sounds like to me is that you ether have something wrong with the Power Supply or the mainboard its self.

If you are not sure which power supply to get let me know the model of your PS3 so I can tell you the right power supply to get.

My ps3 turn off by itself and than the red led light flashes. And somtime the whole console freezes and i would have to turn it off manually. I have had my ps3 when it first came out so its pretty old dont...


ps3 turning itself off can be a power problem try unplugging and replugging all ps3 power cords and extension cord. as for the freezing it could be many things such as certain games fallout series black ops could also be corrupted save data (often gotten from turning console off while saving) make sure you are not getting a yellow light on your ps3 when it turns itself off (the new yellow light of death for ps3 if this does occur you need to get console fixed)

Yellow lights


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony and they will send you a new or refurbshed one. North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.

PS3 Yellow light


There is nothing wrong with the PS3. I read in the users manual that when the the green light on the PS3 turns yellow or flashes yellow the PS3 is too hot and you need to turn it off. It has never happened to me because I keep my PS3 in a open area.

When the PS3 gets to hot you need to let it sit and cool for a little while and then you can turn it back on and start playing again. If the PS3 cools for a while and it still doesn't work you need to call Sony.
