Yea that is the infamous ylod. http://community.eu.playstation.com/playstationeu/
I am guessing they told u 2 send it in?
So really why are you messaging here anyway? or do you need help with something?
I guess he is messaging here becuase like the rest of us he is @#$%$%# sick of the yellow light of death a problem that is almost planned obsloesence a problem that affects hundreads of thousands of PS3 owners, a problem that Sony wont acknowlege that is an inherant fault that should be fixed for free regardless of the age of the machine, and a problem that makes this 15 yr Sony veteran want to bad mouth Sony at every opportunity because im on my 4th repair of YLOD and well its my last I bought the unit on launch night $1000 give or take and now it has cost me another $1000 in YLOD repairs each one taking almost a month to return. XBOx and Wii I am coming......Sony PS3 absloute *****e.
Same happened to me, except it didn't crash. I turned it off last night and when i went on it today the green light changed too yellow then to flashing red. I t wont let me start up safe mode either. Yesterday it was fine and I only used for twenty minutes. My PS3 is the 60gb original. I've had problems before but I just had to put it in safe mode, deleted all my game saves and utility too. Can anyone Help i just put twenty quid on my account yesterday so im kinda annoyed.
I don't really want to send it off to sony for a replacement and i don't know how to fix it myself. Should I take it to a game shop or just call sony?
Hey i would very much appreciate it if you gave me the number to call sony cause i have the yellow light of death to. please help me out man.
why do you even respond to this question? you sound like a jerk, "Oh but I'm an expert because I answer thousands of questions with rude answers"
