PS3 red blinking led
« on: 08 of August of 2014, 03:07:45 AM »
A friend of mine got this problem with his 40 gb fat model. it's different from the ylod that I've seen on a 60gb of another friend, because it's just the red led blinking this time but the console still doesn't work. already turned off and disconnected/reconnected every cable.

do you know if this issue can be fixed somehow?

update:
there's a small yellow light pulse before the red led start blinking

THAT is the YLOD! And that's exactly what happened to mine. R.I.P. your friend's console. :'(

I kind of remember something different with leds on the 60 gb model. maybe my memory is not really good. I've read he should be able to get the game back at least on the 40gb model, on the 60gb it wasn't possible.

well, thank you for confirming the cause of death, coroner.

It happened to our PS3 back in the day. We ended up having to sell it for the parts, as it had no affordable repair. It was the fat model, too. The yellow light of death.
