    Problem

    I was playing an game online, bring the opening kickoff back...screen goes black....PS3 light goes to a blinking red....I touch the pad and it goes solid red, touch it again, it turns green like start up...then yellow, back to blinking red...NCAA 11 is stuck in there, Cimmy...is out of commission.

    The Yellow light of death? So with the roster being a major problem does that mean we should just pack this in?

    Why would we quit? He can just transfer the commisionership to someone else (Someone who doesnt want to quit at the first sign of trouble preferably).

    Don't take my life from me. Bk said he would be willing to start it up under my name and when I get the problem fixed or a new one, I will be back. Idk when start up is...we wouldn't be starting this thing up until next week anyway with a good set of rosters, which I got barely any time to look at, nor test any sliders. If this was destined to happen, now is probably the best time, tho inconvenient because I have car payment and rent due, plus a vacation in front of me...Yes, it is the YLOD. I may try and get at it myself at least to get the disc out, then probably buy a new one, if I am able to afford it.

    That page is about 2 years old haha. I did try the "hold the power button down" thing earlier, but got nothing. It's the legit YLOD not the overheating issue some ppl deal with. It doesn't access any screen. I'm on this website called Swoopo...anyone ever hear of it?

    Just going through the forums. My PS3 had the same thing about a year ago. I then followed the instructions on this youtube video:

    and it fixed it. Granted I had to redo it every 3 months and after about 9 months it completely crashed, so I had to buy a new one. But if you need to save up money for a new one, its worth getting you through 3 months :-D. Hope this helps.

    Sorry to hear about the Cimmy...that is always one of my fears, my PS3 dying.

    A little off topic, but somewhat related...since everything saves to the PS3 harddrive, is there anyway at all to backup saves and stuff from your PS3? I have tried with no success.

    My biggest fear is losing all the work I've put into many of the games I've played on mine.
