YLOD nooooooo!

Post by jroo19 on Wed Nov 25, 2009 7:11 pm

Ok, i've just sat down for a night on MW2 and switched on the PS3, goes get a drink, comes back and the PS3 has turned off, WTF???? so i switch back on and what do you know...Yellow Light Of Death followed by a blinking red light. FFS!!!! wall
Its the original 60gig and i've had it 3.5 years so warranty is out. I begrudge spending 140 notes for a recon unit as i'd rather get a brand spanking new one for a bit more.
I've been checking out Youtube for guides to fixing this problem myself, i'm quite a competent person so i'm happy to disassemble the unit and attempt a fix. I've seen one particular fix thats popular on youtube, what do you guys think of it? YLOD fix
Any helpful suggestions appreciated.

Sorry to hear that man. Before you open up your PS3 on your own, I would suggest looking for a local repair shop. Due to the frequency of failures in 360's and PS3's there are a lot of places that fix them, and for a lot less money than Sony or Microsoft ask. We have a place by my house that fixes them for $55.

Fixing the YLOD is easy to do yourself.

Its fixed! i decided that seen as i was prepared to buy a new ps3 that i may as well have a bash at repairing it myself. I scoured the internet for fixes and settled on a popular guide on Youtube (links below)
So i disassembled it last night, went to Maplins today to get some Heat Sink Compound then when i got in from work i started the fix. Basically i got the missus hair dryer and warmed the chip sets up as shown on the guide, left it 20 minutes, went back and applied compound then reassembled and hey presto it works.

So to fix the YLOD all you need is a hairdtyer and upto a tenner for the heat sink compound. Happy Days.

So if any of you guys face the dreaded YLOD then check out these links. It'll save you over a 100 quid.
