    Ok since i have not seen 1 straight answer here i go:

    1. how to permanently fix the solid / flashing red light

    PROBLEM:Your PS3 has overheated.
    FIX: There is not much you can do (anymore). You could open it up and check the solders and coolingpaste on the GPU and CPU... but normaly it's to late for that.

    2. how to permanently fix the flashing green light

    PROBLEM:This means your PS3 fails to load the XMB.
    FIX: with the PS3 off, hold down the power button for 10 seconds until you hear three beeps. Press the PS button on the controller and the recovery menu will load. Use the recovery menu to unbrick your PS3 by installing a firmware update or preforming other actions".

    3. how to permanently fix the 3 beep issue

    PROBLEM: The filesystem is corrupt or the USB device in your PS3 is malfunctioning!
    FIX: Remove the USB device and reinstall the FW

    4. how to permanently fix blank screen of death / no display issue

    PROBLEM: LOL... do i need to explain?
    FIX: You could check if there is still a signal coming trough the cable by replacing it or try the RGB instead of HDMI...

    Well the only thing I can do is recommend the best fixes from my own experience.

    For the YLOD (Blinking red light) I suggest using the Heat Gun method, it will last you a long while. Don't use the Hair Dryer method unless you want the PS3 working for a week. To see how these methods work watch it on Youtube.

    what actual problem does your ps3 have.. if it you press on button light is yellow beeps tree times then turns off red(solid or flashing) its ylod.. the only way to fix this is to get it reballed. that means to have the gpu resoldered.. and the rsx chip to i guess.. the heat gun method will cause more damage than good.. yeah it may work for a while. but then you have to do it again and again and you can easily worp the mo board and do other damage.. not good in my opinion..

    It gets the yellow light for a split second before it starts flashing red. This is because both the red and green lights are on making you see a yellow light. Hence it's called the Yellow light of Death (YLOD).

    Does this happen when you turn your PS3 on or after your PS3 is on for a while?
