[TuT] How to fix YLOD ! – NextGenUpdate

Sony Electronics Sony Mobile. But as I said I just got on with it and fixed it. Should i shouldn’t i is the question? View our house rules for posts. Using a hoover on a vent doesn’t do one thing but clean whats off the vent itself!

But in this case i was wrong: Supersoldier Supersoldier 6 years ago 6 Get it fixed by Sony, and when they try to offer you switching to a slim refuse. Sorry for your loss. Also, this is the best time for you to get a new system with the lower priced bundles and a huge amount of space. Don’t have an account? PS3 freezing on system restore, need help. I say any type of thermal paste because you only need a temorary fix, so top of the line or bottom of the barrel won’t make a damn bit of difference.

I’m waiting for my Arctic 5 paste to come so i wont be doing anything until the weekend but i have stripped my PS3 down just now in preparation for it and to get familiar with what i will be doing: No point it starting threads saying ”new HDD broke my console” or ”I’m taking Sony to court” XD I’m still a loyal fan and plan on being back up this weekend: They weren’t able to save my ps3, possibly because the first place i took it to messed it up beyond repair, but 40gn has got to be the company i’ve dealt with in years.

Sadly my 60gb only lasted a further two weeks so I gave up had backed up all saves by this point and had it replaced under CP. Terms of Use Privacy Policy Legal. Two other good companies are endlesselectronics. It’s very likely that they’ll be able to fix it, unless your GPU is completely fried, or your HDD is corrupted, but the chances of that happening is thankfully rather slim.

I’ve always looked after it and cleaned it regularly, but once that dust is inside its not coming out unless you take it completely apart. When I repaired my 60gb my one did not have them little pads on as well. Keep me logged in on this device Forgot your username or password? Email me when someone replies.
