To everyone who had/has YLOD: Did the back of your PS3 start blowing hot air? Mine never did that untill now.
mines being doing that all summer lol nice and hot in sydney usually between 25-35 degreesJanuary 19, 2010 at 1:44 am #55711parnakasMember
I have never got it. And I pray to god, if he exists, that I never do.
just because you said that.. your ps3 will get the YloD.. lol
All these over-heats have been getting me nervous, so i backed up everything.
And i have a lot of faith in my 20GB model.. never have had any hardware problems.January 19, 2010 at 1:45 am #55712Ratchet525Member
You guys are getting me scaredJanuary 19, 2010 at 1:52 am #55713emdeepeeMember
I've never had a problem with overheating (even now) as the stand my PS3 was on is open ended.
Had the problem on Saturday whereby the PS3 shut itself down twice, but after that it went back to normal. In fact I played on Burnout for an hour on Sunday with no problems at all!!!
I was under the impression that once you got YLOD that was that, but I've been managing to get it on for 2 minutes at a time. With any luck I'll be able to boot it up long enough to transfer game saves/data.January 19, 2010 at 3:18 pm #55739
Hi all i have just finished editing the video for how to fix a PS3 YLOD yourself. I will have it uploaded later documentation will follow tomorrow. It is a 40 GB model in the video but the repair process is the same, just differing in dismantling the conmsole with the 60 GB.
You could have this fixed from as little as $30, so dont throw it away just yet!January 19, 2010 at 3:50 pm #55740emdeepeeMember
I had a look on youtube at a video explaining how to fix YLOD yourself. Unfortunately its beyond my technical ability.
Have found a fairly decent price for a 250g slim, so just hope I can get the other one powered up long enough to transfer game data.January 19, 2010 at 6:39 pm #55753NodanodMember
well, i managed 2 fix my YLOD, and i spose the hardest thing really was putting it all back 2getha, wasnt “too” difficult 2 fix, but obv. is very delicate and tempremental.January 21, 2010 at 2:13 pm #55965
Finally got my flash files to work from my site! Had difficulty contacting my webhosts to edit my MIME configuration to add .f4v and .flv filetypes, got there in the end though.
Here is the link:
It is very easy to fix though, once you know how and take your time! I am editing a new thread to include this video link and written tutorials for both 40Gb and orig 60GB model PS3's.January 22, 2010 at 6:54 pm #56092BigWoopMagazineMember
I'm going to try this out eventually (not right now, I did just buy a new slim, but hung on to the old one). I need to find a clean space to do it though, unfortunately I live in a small studio apartment with a cat, who WILL play with the pieces and get hair/dander in the system. So… it might be a month or two before I figure out where to do this, but when I do I'll let ya know how it goes.January 22, 2010 at 10:59 pm #56121
LOL on the cat The cat was in with me sittin on my chair behind my back when i made the video It made an appearance at some stage towards the end but cant remember if i edited it out! Good Luck with it.
What you could also do is fix it so that it works and if you do not trust it anymore trade it in and you will get Euro210 towards a new PS3 or games 🙂 Gamestop were buying used consoles for E210 here anyway! and with the slim only 300 why not 🙂
