Did you tried calling Sony? They have a 1 year warranty on it so everything should cover including sending you back the disc that is stuck in it. Give them a call if it's not over a year but make sure you have your receipt. Good luck! Cost too much to break down so easily.If out of warranty just post a request so i can assist..

Only a echnician can fix it. Don't try doing anything urself. U could damage it more. Go to a Sony World showroom and have it fixed

Hello,


This could have been overheating. Must have destroyed the inboard sensitive chips. Contact Sony, for further advice. :)

My ps3 wont turn on it goes green then yellow and then to flashing red


Yellow light of death. Actually there is no yellow light. It's an illusion when that half a sec that boath the green & Red lights are on. Only one way to fix that is a reflow of the GPU & CPU. Similar to heating the solder points on an xbox, just not as big a success rate and the only two things you have to heat up are the two squares in the middle of the motherboard. Take a heat gun on low setting to those two squares for 4 minutes and cool for 14 minutes then flip the board over and do the same on top, and cool for 14 minutes.
