yellow light
  • what is the yellow light on the ps3 because my mate has got the yellow light and i wondering myself wat it is.
  • If you are talking a small flashing light near the bottom of the PS3 this is just a light to indicate the hard drive is being written to- do NOT shut the PS3 off when this is happening.

    If the yellow light you mean is more around where the power light is, your friend has problems. This would be a sign of hardware failure, similar to the "red ring of death" for the 360. If this happens and the system stops working he would have to contact Sony for servicing.
