RED,YELLOW,WHITE LIGHT OF DEATH

11 replies 991 views Edited Nov 2, 2008
Hi! I want to know how can I repair the PS3 because is giving me the red, yellow, white light of death. I dont know why is this. I can believe that SONY will charged me 150 dollars plus shipping to repair it when this is not the fault of the customer. SONY should see the videos on you tube and the forums with many people with the same problem. Is the same problem that the red light of death of the XBOX 360 but the service of the XBOX does not charged nothing because they care for the customers apparently SONY DONT. This is the worst that could happen because the PS3 have my Guitar Hero World Tour inside and Resistance is coming next week and I couldnt wait to play it. I hope you could answer me about this.Thank you very much and I hope that you will have a solution to this problem. I am deeply sorry for this because I always defend the PS3 and buy all of the games and I have the PSP too.

Yep you'll need to send it in, and if you're out of warranty it's $150. The main reason they're still charging is because of ratio of faulty vs non-faulty units. When you consider how many PS3's are out there and how many have NOT had any problems you'll see that there's no incentive for Sony to extend the warranty.


Fix your DS3/SixAxis-Boomer since 2,736

My PS3 started over heating two nights ago. Now won't turn on. Blinks yellow light and then red. The only thing you can do is send it into Sony.

i guess you dont know that crapbox is only fixing the consoles for free is becuz they extended there warrenty to 3 years...only becuz they got hit  with a class action lawsuit...68 out of 100 units comming off the line were defective due 2 falty soldering, poor testing and memery issues...ms was aware of this and extedded the warrenty insted of paying there "loyal" customers....source: GI issue187 november edition...
