Ylod Help!! –
So, I got the YLOD last night. But the thing is I don't think it's an overheating issue. It's a 60gb model CECHC02. It got reflowed for the first time 3 weeks ago, fan mod installed running great.
Bluray drive went, so I got a replacement and successfully completed the remarry process, worked a treat as I have done this before, the drive was reading discs all is good.
Still in FSM, I had the console still on, and i'm holding the bluray ribbon in as the clip to hold it down is broken. The ribbon cable comes out slightly, so I pushed the ribbon cable back into the connector with a little pressure (bit silly while the unit is still on), and all of a sudden I hear 3 beeps, red blinking light. Oh no... turn the console on YLOD.
I've checked all the connections, and everything is plugged in right. Tried a different bluray ribbon cable. Tried putting in a different hdd, and tried power/eject with a dongle still nothing.
I am out of ideas... if anyone could help shed some light on my problem that would be great.
If you were messing around with the ribbon cable while the console is on it with cause the YLOD. It should turn back on though. If not you will need to either reflow the correct way not and not with a heat gun. Or you need the GPU reballed. I can do either services for you. You can check my threads.
Like I said in the first post man the console was reflowed about 2 and a half weeks before this incident, hardly used in that time, and had a fan mod installed. I highly doubt it would be an overheating problem.
Yeah a couple weeks out of a reflow is normal... Gotta reflow again, try some new cooling tactics.
