i have two ps3’s with two different yellow lights of death (ylod) one has a two second delay after turning on before it flashes yellow and then it shuts down and flashes red. the other console has a longer delay before flashing yellow which is about 5 or 6 secs. do they mean different malfunctions or whatever? please help.

i’m trying to fix them myself, i’m wondering could i swap parts between the two to get one working properly?

  1. Unfortunately, ylod is just a generic error message, it is not specific to the type of problem. It could be as minor as a loose hard drive, or as major as a cpu failure, or any problem in between.

    Swapping parts would be unlikely to fix anything, especially if you have two different types of system (ps3 fat, or ps3 slim)

    Sorry for the tough news, but you may be better off buying a new system :/
