I recently got a PS3 from my friend for free! He told me that it got the YLOD unfortunately! It is a 60GB PS3 Backwards Compatible! I really love this console but would like to get it fixed! I took it to the repair shop and they said that the GPU was fried! SO basically I had to get a new GPU. They told me my only option was to get a Slim or send it to Sony! I called up Sony and they said it would take $150 to repair it! I am considering to send it to them since I really like this console! It has the chrome trim, backwards compatible, 4 USB's, flash card, it is just beast! I am really considering sending it to them! But the problem is, will any problems occur again? Will Sony fix it if a problem occurs? Has anyone sent their console? Also will Sony repair my PS3 since it's opened? Will it get YLOD again? How long will it take to develop YLOD? I also looked at a 60GB PS3 on eBay which has been reballed, should I just get that instead? If I send it to Sony, should I install a fan mod when it comes back, so it doesn't develop YLOD?
