The PlayStation 3 Yellow Light of Death (YLOD) is a general error and can be one of many things.. Users have reported receiving a PS3 YLOD in the following ways, to name a few:

• Trying to install a game onto the HDD, harddrive failure YLOD.

• Power surge can be a possible cause of the YLOD.

• If the inside of your PS3 is very dusty it can cause a YLOD.

Obtaining a security driver and replacing the PS3 thermal paste with a high quality paste like arctic silver is one remedy. This fix has worked for a huge amount of people, albeit it is only .3% of all PS3 owners. If you are a 60 or 20GB owner you may also want to change the paste for the emotion chip as well.
