PS3 60 GB Blinking Red Light...Help!

6 replies 258 views Edited Sep 20, 2011

When I turn the PS3 on, it turns green for a second, than a yellow type color, and then a blinking red. On top of that, the disc is stuck in the tray. What do I do now?

I am in the very same boat as you . It is called YLOD , Yellow Light of Death . You have to send it in to get it fixed or tear it appart yourself . You can try to turn the PS3 off in the back hold your finger on the eject button and turn it on in the back . It might force eject it . Mine won't .

ended up completely taking the old ps3 apart and getting the R3 disc out. Now I have to replay the entire campaign just to see the ending LOL i was damn near finished.

I sucked it up after this post, went out and bought a new Slim during the midnight Gears of War 3 madness at Gamestop. Here's hoping this PS3 lasts longer than my old one. Although I did buy my 60gb 2 months after the PS3 debuted back in January of 2008.

After you took it appart and got your R3 disc out , I take it still won't start back up again . It stinks you have to start all over again .

Are you gonig to get your 60 GB fixed or just let it go ? How do you like the slim compared to the 60 GB ?
