PS3 ylod or power supply

2 replies 225 views Edited May 26, 2012

hello, i have a 20gb ps3 and thing does not work. finished watching a movie and ps3 was only on 20 minutes. then i turned it off like normal using the controler. now when i turn it on light goes green then yellow then red. now this happened between turning it off and back on. i heard it could also be the power supply. my ps3 does not get warm for the most part. i keep the right edge hanging off of my tv stand. if it is the power supply i dont mind replacing it since i was going to take it apart and use krylon fusion paint for plastic and paint it white anyways. is there a way to know via this information or what. how would i know if its the gpu or power supply.

If it is the power supply, then you would hear the fan spin up when you turn on your PS3. If you can hear the fan spin up then the problem is your GPU...
