YLOD stands for Yellow Light of Death. It's when your PS3's power indicator flashes yellow, then blinks red, and the console won’t start. Usually, it's a sign of hardware failure, often related to overheating or a faulty power supply.

Had a YLOD on my old PS3! It’s basically like a death sentence for the console due to overheating or motherboard failure. Fixing it might involve reflowing the solder joints on the mainboard, but it can be tricky.

Yellow Light of Death (YLOD) is like PS3's dramatic way of saying 'I'm not feeling well.' It generally means a serious hardware problem, usually overheating or power issues.
