Step 1 — Fixing Playstation 3 Green Light of Death (GLOD) 

  • While the PS3 is on (green LED on), put the PS3 into standby mode (red power LED) by pressing the power button for 5 seconds.

Step 2 

  • Now when the PS3 is in standby mode, hold the power button down for until you hear it beep about 2 or 3 times then release the power button.

Step 3 

  • This will reset the video settings to the lowest settings and when you start the PS3 with  HDMI or PS3 AV cable connected, it will go through the setup process and you will now see a picture on the TV screen.

Here comes the fun part!

On a side note, Check whether your warranty is valid or not.

My old PS3 finally got sick and after almost 3 years my warranty from Target is still active!

The YLOD can be caused by over-heating. Or sometimes other errors or broken things.

But try this. I've known people that have done this and it actually worked.

REMEMBER, this can do damage on your system.

If you can tempory fix it, buy a new one and do a data transfer to the new one.

If you need a permanent fix, consider mailing it out to a shop specializing in repairs. They can diagnose the system and determine if it can be fixed through resoldering the video chip back to the system board with new solder balls. Some of the other community members recommend Endless Electronics.
