Weird Yellow Light..?
I Know About The YLOD But I Thought That Only Happens When The Ps3 Overheats..
I Turned My 60GB Ps3 On Just Been Getting The RSX Chip? Fixed.. Anyways So I Went To Re Install Multiman And Then The Ps3 Just Shutdown... :s
So I Went To Turn It Back On Green Light,Yellow Light,Red Light Flashing..? It Couldn't Have Overheated Within 2 Minutes..?
this isndefinitelythe yellow light of death. I had my 60 gig since launch window and I've had numerous YLODs that I fixed using the oven method. The last time it died was exactly a you outlined: trying to update MM. That was the 6th and last time I fixed my ps3 over 2 years so I ended up cracking open my 3.55 slim backup I kept... You DO lose the bc and card reader but get a lot better stability for CFWs... If you do fix it: before you put it together poke holes at the bottom I the ps3 right where the fan would sit so there's a ton of ventilation (in the star/round pc fan shape), use article silver thermal paste, and keep it horizontal and raised a few inches for ventilation. Most importantly, try getting it reballed with leaded solder. This will more than likely ensure longevity. I couldn't find anyone in my area to do it for me professionally and wouldn't risk it myself.
