  1. it might be overheated. just make sure it i not closed up in a tight space like a drawer and make sure there isnt dust clogging up all the vents. If thats not the problem then you might want to call sony and get a replacement ps3

  2. Feel your PS3. Does it feel hot?

    If not, then it's the YLoD: Yellow Light of Death. It's been happening A LOT recently...

  3. Make sure that your PS3 is not put in a tight space or in direct sunlight where it overheats. Put in an open space, and make sure that it isn't in sunlight. Otherwise, YLoD.
