By yellow light this could be a warining that something is wrong the only thing i can think of that is happening is the power cable is loose and the ps3 is not getting enough power to it so it forces it to shut down until it has the right amount of power.

If your PS3 console attempts to turn on, then beeps and a yellow light comes on and then your Sony PlayStation 3 shuts down or does not power on at all or shows no video means YLOD or Yellow Light Of death has occurred! A guy had same problem with His console 6 months back, He was able to fix it for 15 bucks ! without sending it to Sony for costly repair.

You need to have the motherboard fixed, do to so you need to take the PS3 apart then reflow the board.

there is a great 6part video guide on YouTube to view for free. 6 videos from the same fellow, each video about 10mins long, goes over everything for you.

http://www.youtube.com/user/gilksy1 and its free unlike some eBook site.

I actually used the videos shown by this guy to fix about 30 PS3 units with no problems, you just need a few things though like a heat gun and some thermal paste. sounds hard, but it's very easy once you start!

Hope this helps in some way.

My PS3 system turns on for approximately 3 seconds then turns off, then the red indicator light blinks.


This is a motherboard fault, this link shows you the repair but some electrical and soldering knowledge is needed. Would only attempt if you have that knowledge.

MY PS3 wont stay on and theres a blinking red light


The yellow light usually indicated that the GPS has failed. The only way to fix this is to send it in to Sony. it will cost you $149 for shipping and fixing it. Thats if it isnt under warranty. Just as a note you can take the HDD out and put a blank one in there if you are worried about loosing your saves and stuff if you have to turn it in.

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.
