    BBC Watchdog say that it had been contacted by over 150 PS3 owners whose consoles no longer work, all of them have displayed the same fault indicator in the form of a yellow flashing light. If the consoles are outside of the one year PS3 warranty period then Sony charges a standard fee of �128 to rectify the fault.
    BBC Watchdog spoke with a number of independent console repair companies who said that the "yellow light of death" can be repaired by heating up specific parts of the PS3s circuit board in a process called solder re-flow, which is commonly used to repair fractured connections.

    In a statement issued to the BBC, Sony acknowledged that around 12,500 of the 2.5 million PS3s sold in the UK have broken in this way, but the company strongly denied that there is a single fault afflicting all of these consoles.
