    Unfortunately both the ps3 and xbox suffer very similar problems, just that the xbox has a better warranty.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Im pretty sure there a Watchdog item about it last year - they referred to it as the "Orange light of Death". But not 100%.

    Fix them youselves guys.

    Fixed 2 Xbox 360s RROD (red ring of death) in the last 2 weeks, mine and me future bro-in-laws. £6 kit from eBay and about 1.5 -2hr including 'baking time'

    My PS3 has just developed the YLOD (yellow light of death) and gonna fix it this weekend, £4 kit from eBay, but i did have to buy a heat-gun as u need to 're-flow' the mobo and CPU/GPUs for the solder to resettle.

    My sons got the yellow light and after a hard reset which I did
    myself it's sorted, neighbours also stopped Reading discs
    again hard reset and been working fine since

    turn off at the back then turn back on but also holding the front
    power on button, I think it beeps 3 times then it should reset switch b
    back off and on see if it's reset ?
    give it a go
