YLOD Help –
I got a broken ps3 free, everything seems fine, mobo is like new was completely clean, but it has YLOD, anyone know how to temporaryly fix this
thanks in advance
I'm new here but I've had a PS3 since the launch.
I have a console with the same problem as the OP, a mint slim with ylod, even inside looks brand new.
When I press power I get a green light for a few seconds then yellow for a split second and then just flashes red until I power it off.
I've tried a different power brick in the back of the console but still get the same problem.
I'm thinking of getting a fine soldering iron and giving the repair a shot but I can't find a guide for repairing ylod on the slim anywhere on which part do de-solder and re-solder.
I keep finding videos of people repairing phat consoles with a hair dryer.
It is a Jap 120gb CECH-2012A console, any ideas?
Any help from an expert would be great...
