The Famous YLOD...

Post  MARSTA-J on Mon Nov 01, 2010 3:59 am

Well it finally hit me... Still got my brothers ps3 to play now and then...

Have got some people keen to buy my HDPVR for the same price I scored it 4, so sounds like that could be me to fund a SLIM, probly wait til black-ops comes out, so that I can score it with a bundle pack Smile

Have looked into the heat fix method, and looks promising, but any1 know how long it lasts for? I need to do it anyways, its got a DISC in it lol...

Anyways before my HDPVR gets the green light, any1 feel like a WH group orgy or something lol...

Clan Battle maybe? Clan Video?
hmmmmm......

A few people got it on these boards right? Did any1 try to fix em?

I'm not sure how much life you'll get from the heat fix, from what I've heard it's fairly temporary. You may of course get lucky and get some good life out of it. You can get the disc out without using the heat gun trick though, I got mine out that way when I YLODed. Check this video out:

MJ - Lancers first PS3 YLOD'd back in January. He fixed it himself and it is still working. It is definitely worth a try.

Boss recommends:
that the heat gun be temperature adjustable
you also need thermal paste
follow a video/instructions accurately
be precise
no guarantees the fix lasts for any length of time so backup immediately you get it going if you need to
goodluck

Yep yep, I play it everynight...
1 month strong so far lol...

I see on your PSN comment, you fixed your YLOD to?
Did you do the heatgun trick and paste etc etc?

I hired a heatgun from the warehouse, fixed it, returned the heatgun the next day Smile....

I just bought 1 mate... $49 from bunnings, it only has 2 temps tho but it still did the job. How much was it 2 hire? I also got silver based thermal paste from jaycar for $6.95

Im looking at buying ylod ps3s of ebay for $50 and trying to fix them so i have spares lol

It was rediculously easy, but i was just wondering how long it will last!

bro ive been on the same buzz ever since, wanting to buy broken ps3's but they still sell for like 150 haha ..

And I meant I bought 1 from the warehouse, it had a 7 day return policy, if everything is fine...
I just said, Im returning this, as it doesnt do the job I wanted and want to look for a more expensive unit No questions asked, returned, cash back.. (If they asked whats the job, I woulda said paint strip lol... (But the unit I bought was like $25 so I could say it was a cheap unit and wanted a better 1, if yours is already at the top of the range, then I dont know what you could say haha...

Thats cool, I have my back-up UK ps3 so I will get that one going. The only thing is that its an 80 gig fat version and probably will YLOD one day as well.


Does anyone know if the slim versions have a good recored of not YLODíng?

They don't get YLOD because they don't have the PS2 chipset, which is the one that fries and leaks onto the GPU to cause YLOD.... i think.

Yeah from my understanding of the YLOD

All phats eventually get the YLOD, because of how their structure is, the heat is not transferred out of the case good enough (And after time that harms pieces inside (Forgot the name Smile), I heard the 60gb are worst, because the POWER unit gets hotter then all other fats, and also they have a different fan etc and the extra parts that is needed for the ps2 playback etc. but my 40gb got the YLOD so I guess it doesnt matter

With the slim, they have air vents around the whole unit, so less heat flows better.

For my FAT, i created holes on the bottom panel then covered them with that stocking stuff lol, doesnt look the best by itself standing up, but then sit it on a USB Laptop Cooling Pad so it blows more air into the system when I turn it on..

Looks cool and works sweet Smile

Yeah the phats are bad for YLOD. And you're totally right, its a heat related problem.
Mine must have done it at least dozen times, but fortunately, its totally fixable.
And since I did the hardware mod (info in my intro post) I haven't had a single problem.
