What happens with the PlayStation 3 is that over time the heat generated by the Cell processor and the Graphics processor causes the wires that connect everything to the Motherboard to melt off. This cuts off communication between the parts and causes your PS3 to display a Yellow Light of Death (YLOD).
Now unfortunately most of the time this happens when your warranty is expired, which seems like a brilliant master plan by Sony to take your money. They charge you anywhere around $200 plus taxes and shipping to get it fixed.
The good news is that we show you how to easily fix it yourself. There is absolutely nothing hard or tedious about it, all you need to do is follow our easy to read guide and within 40 minutes or LESS you will be back playing your PS3. You don’t need any technical knowledge what so ever, anyone can do it.
