Pls help me YLOD –
hey guys i have the YLOD
I can fix it with the hairdryer trick but it goes off again
my plan is to strip it so their is no case and every time i am using the ps3 always have a fan running a the highest speed. do you think this will work?
sry, if this is a dumb idea i am a newb
pls respond and thks.
Ok, here's my opinion on this. DO NOT take the shell off unless you're going to reball. Each reflow let's the PS3 last different times. Some long, some short. The longest I've read was one that lasted up to 8 months.
Reflow is temporary
Reball is permanent, though VERY difficult and VERY hard

Using a hairdryer wont work lol (or wont get best results). It doesn't heat the solder enough to reset the hairline cracks within it! You need to be using a heat gun to get the job done right.
I did mine & it's still going strong after 9 months.
[lang=de]well looks like im in a pickle![/lang]
It is hard for me to believe myself, but since I was off work today and had the time, I took apart a ylod cechl01 that I scored for $25 online a few years ago. Followed a decent tut and stuck the mother board in the oven for 10 minutes at 420F reassembled with arctic silver 5 and now it works great and has 3.0 ofw, so far.
did u heat the board with home oven??
