Yellow light of death, YLOD, is a yellow light that indicates a hardware failure that has made the Sony Playstation PS3 unusable. The BBC TV program “Watchdog” aired an investigative report that claimed the Yellow Light of Death tends to occur after 18-24 months, at which time the standard Sony warranty is over. Sony denied the “findings.” In many cases, the only repair that seems consistently to work involves opening up the PS3 console and using a heat gun to heat up the CPU / GPU and direct chip sets. Sometimes, however, a YLOD warning may be due to a faulty power supply preventing the console from properly booting.
What You Can Do
To determine what is causing the YLOD, switch the console off and allow it to cool down for at least 20 minutes. Then turn the console on and listen closely for the fan. If the fan powers on briefly and then switches off again, you are likely to have a motherboard problem. If you don’t hear the fan on start up, then the likely problem is with the power supply.

Overheating or major hard drive failure may be the cases of the yellow light error. Depending on how often you use your PS3 and how well you look after it, a hard drive ought to last on average at least 3 to 5 years.Of the two error indicators, the YLOD is the more serious. It tends to indicate an internal fault requiring a professional repair. A flashing red indicator light on the other hand is often the precursor to more serious internal problems.
