Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
99.9% of the time this is a heat sync problem and your CPU and GPU need to be re-seated. I had the same problem with mine. COD4 was stuck inside to. I run my own pc repair business and fixed my own ps3. I am located in southern california. email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit dwdpcrepair.com for shipping and costs. The work should be done by someone that knows what they are doing. 1st try removing the Hard drive and reconnecting it. Chances are this will not fix the problem but about 1% of the time it will due to the HD being connected securely.

Do not go buy a new hard drive because that guy said so. If you want to test to see if it is your hard drive then just pull it out and try turning it off. If you still get this yellow light A.K.A The Yellow light of death YLOD (really not yellow just two lights on at same time makes it look yellow) then it is another problem that is commonly assocatied with power supplying hardware.
Got to Youtube.com and search for: removing PS3 hard drive............... for instructions
