    Well the only thing I can do is recommend the best fixes from my own experience.

    For the YLOD (Blinking red light) I suggest using the Heat Gun method, it will last you a long while. Don't use the Hair Dryer method unless you want the PS3 working for a week. To see how these methods work watch it on Youtube.

    what actual problem does your ps3 have.. if it you press on button light is yellow beeps tree times then turns off red(solid or flashing) its ylod.. the only way to fix this is to get it reballed. that means to have the gpu resoldered.. and the rsx chip to i guess.. the heat gun method will cause more damage than good.. yeah it may work for a while. but then you have to do it again and again and you can easily worp the mo board and do other damage.. not good in my opinion..

    It gets the yellow light for a split second before it starts flashing red. This is because both the red and green lights are on making you see a yellow light. Hence it's called the Yellow light of Death (YLOD).

    Does this happen when you turn your PS3 on or after your PS3 is on for a while?
