PS3 Yellow Light / Blinking Red Light / Overheating Repairs
Is your PS3 displaying a yellow light (YLOD) or blinking red light when powering on or freezing up while still in the menu or displaying a blank screen?
This issue occurs due to overheating and solder failure of the RSX chip (Reality Synthesizer/Graphics Processing Unit). It is caused by excessive heat, combined with the low grade thermal grease used on the Playstation 3, which transfers heat from the CPU and GPU to the heatsink/fan assembly. Over time the solder becomes weak due to the extreme temperature fluctuations and can become bridged (tin whiskers) or crack and lose connection.
