its actually a Yellow Light of Death... if you watch the light sequense closely... you may spot a split scond glimps of a yellow light... dont blink or you'll miss it.... if thats the case its a gonna...
but then again if you are able to power up the playstation to the XMB its not broken... put machine into safe mode and do some system maintenance from the available options... (avoiding system reformats etc)
from what iv been reading, gt6 kills fats,
gt5 killed mine
al i can sugest is delete game data and re install patch 1.02,
i had same issue day 1, i get it oten with games like dust, serveroverload or something,
try it if you can, but i fear it may be to late.
Thats what i did, my fat lasted 1 year after that but i had to take the lid off and leave everything exposed, i called this period life support
Restoring the file system only fixes the hdd and any os files on hdd, the problems described only tell me its a matter of time, i could play all games on my fat except gt5, it would play for ten mins and shut the ps3 down,
its progress im afraid, we are at the end of ps3 life, games are at there limit and old first gen ps3 with its larger more power consuming architecture, cant handle it, or should i say it cant get rid of the heat quick enough, this causes everything to malfunction, laser heated up and all.
And i dont know why contacting sony would help, iv been through it with them, and dont get me wrong, im all for sony, but they were no help to me, they wanted to charge me for a possible quick fix and my ps3 would be gone for some time, it was cheaper to buy a new slim,
all the tricks mentioned above, i tried them all, and as some of you will know, its still only a matter of time, the fact is, and im the same, if we could of mended our ps3 before the ylod, 3beeps ect, it would be fine, but the fact that its all ready got to hot and had to shut down, the damage is all ready done, chances are, your lasers on its way from bewing to hot, solders between mother board and other components are broke, hdd is cooked, thermal paste is dry, and my fav, the burnt gpu that puts mimics whats on the chip on your tv screen, the funky graphics on xmb, im sure some of you will understand.
only so much can be fixed, if its over used, its over used, or as i put it it had a good life. and if it lasted this long, until the end of the consoles life, id say you had a very good run...
