The cause of the "Yellow Light of Death"
The most common cause for this fault is when the UNLEADED solder on under the CPU and RSX chip cracks, this is due to the solder breaking down due to heat stress. It can also be caused by the RSX or CPU chip itself actually failing, if this is the case then a reball is required.
