That's the yellow light of death. Your console is either telling you that it is overheating too much, and it's full of dust, or something is seriously wrong with it. The most common cases are either the motherbord or power supply failing. Both of these are very repairable, if you don't mind spending a bit of cash. Either way, you're gonna need to open up your console.

Edit: Replacing either of your failed components is a permanent fix, as far as I'm aware.

    being poor and healthy is the worst case scenario because you have the longest amount of time to "enjoy" being poor

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.

    If I could go back, I'd be more of a horn ball than I am now. I'd be chasing all the girls I never had the balls to back then

    I'd drop out of school sooner
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    Yeah I would probably drop out sooner too, the country ass high school I went to wouldn't know intelligence if it hit the up side the head.

    @BigOnYa My most-hated game on the NES was gilligan's island. Couldn't figure out the controls. Played it on actual hardware. Super frustrating, and boring as shit.

    Jayro reminds me of GYRO! :P
  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    I'm not a greek taco. "Jayro" is pronounced similar to "J.Lo" (Jennifer Lopez). Not "Gyro" like gyroscope or the pitabread taco thing...
  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    "Jay-row" Like that.
