PS3 60 GB YLOD can i keep the shares?
PS3 60 GB YLOD can i keep the shares? –
well this is a sad day for me..i have ps3 60 gb model..and it worked good for 5 years...today i went back home and turned on my ps3 to play rock band 3.
so i played for 30 minutes and BOOM my ps3 shuts off trying to get it on and BOOM YLOD.
I had so many DLC and games around 300 PSN games and around 1000+DLCS from shares so i am thinkin about to buy a new ps3 slim model so my question is can i take out the hdd of 60gb model and put it into the slim and keep the shares?
please tell me that i can
I am afraid not. You should look into fixing the 60GB with gilksy method and deactivate your machine. You can then activate and re-download everything on your new slim.
Yes but my problem is the users that gave me the shares i am not a friend of em anymore..so that means i cant download the shares again from them.is it worth to fix?
some people say it gonna work for half year and then gonna f*** up again.
Or should i buy a new ps3 slim?oh and yea i saw the video before you need to buy a headgun and more stuff that cost more then 200$ with that money you can buy a new slim..
Whether it's worth fixing depends on how much those games/dlc mean to you. I don't know where you got that $200 figure from though, it's less than $50 for the materials. You can even stuff the mobo in an oven and it'll cure the YLOD all the same. Then get some $10 paste from radioshack and you're done
Moral of the story: don't support DRM'd digital content!

Yes it works !!!
I had to fix mine the same way. Look up a guide to take apart your ps3 .
Then strip it down to the bare motherboard remove wires cmos bat ect.
Clean off all thermal paste and preheat the oven to 450 degrees .after all thermal paste is removed ( I used coffee filters and tubing alcohol) find a glass or metal pan to put the motherboard in. SET CLOCK FOR 10MIN AS SOON AS PS3 IS IN OVEN CLOSE DOOR START TIMER AND DROP TEMP TO 400 DEGREES. Get a fan out and place on a table when the timer goes off carry the whole pan to the table and start the timetable do 30 mins
(Do not touch the motherboard until the timer dings)
Now after it dings slap some Artic-Silver or another nanebrand thermal paste back on.
( on thermal paste name brand is the way to go)
And reassembled .Make sure you reconect all of the wires
Hook up plug in and give an evil cackle you are now an electromancer
And your ps3 had new life.
Sorry that's rubbing alcohol. Not tubing lol
