    i turn on and it wont come on it turns from red light to yellow then back to red i cant even get the disc out

    Try unplugging it, then using a hoover on low power hoover the ps3 to get rid of any dust then try turning it back on. (looks like it might of died though)

    its ylod of death i'm afraid.

    this could be a number of things though, as the yellow light is a universal indicator of a hardware fault. could be hardrive, power failure or something to do with the motherboard.

    get in contact with where you bought it from quoting the sales of goods act. took me two months (and 1.5 repairs) and i've finally got a £200 voucher off game.co.uk for instore use. havent used it yet mind...

    in which case the best thing you can do is to fix it yourself

    get all your unprotected saves off it, then trade it in ASAP!

    My friend dropped his ps3 (2 years in) and got it repaired by sony. Some people here even offer to argue with sony on the phone on your behalf if you don't like confrontation yourself
    Or get good advice and argue yourself.

    It was never covered by Sony.
    They do it as a goodwill gesture.

    Dependant on the serial number also, they may not charge you to repair it. Person you bought it of off ebay may have taken out an extended warranty?
