So I went to turn on my 60gb ps3 fat but when I did it flashed green, then beeped and flashed yellow, then turned red and kept flashing red. I've had it for a few years and I've never had a problem like this but I've heard about a 'yellow light of death' which can occur in these old ps3's. I've heard that it's from overheating and recently I stupidly moved a stack of games so that they were covering the air vents. I didn't realise what I'd done until I got the lights and started looking it up on the internet, but I don't know if it's because of that because it's been off most of the time since I put the games over the air vents because I got a Wii.
Anyway does anyone know whether it will fix itself if I put it out in the open and give it some time, or whether I can do anything at home to fix it? If not, how should I go about repairing it or is it better just to buy a new one?
