Hi there. This is known as the Yellow Light Of Death. It's name says it all. This is an error that occurs with the first Generation PS3's and up till now there aren't exactly a perfect solution. I can give you some tips though.

1. If you still have your warranty, send it back to get it fixed. Most likely they'll give you a new one.

2. In case your warranty is not valid, then the second option is to remove all cables from the PS3, then cover the PS3 is a blanket and then take a blow dryer on low level and gently blow the PS3 through the ventilation area for a few minutes. The heat from the blow dryer will affect the motherboard present and might allow it to work on next boot.BEWARE this might work. The problem has not been fixed unless it is taken apart. I will give you a link to a tutorial made gilksy1 and he disassembles the PS3 completely and then fixes the problem.

Hope this helps.

Is the smaller light onto of the router (just below the larger green light) supposed to stay on when connected and if so, is it supposed to be green? Have seen it in yellow and red but it is not staying...


The second light is for your wi-fi protected setup. If it solid green then you have a secure connection. Blinking means looking for device. Amber means a connection was not connected. Off means idle.

When I turn on my Playstation 3, a green light stays on and then the fan goes into "Turbo Mode" for about 30 seconds, the Playstation 3 beeps 3 times and the green light blinks. -No yellow light appears.


have you ever had the playstation taken apart? Maybe you need to replace the Thermal past on the processors. It is due to an overheating problem. I have one right now that does that.
