Re: Have you sent in your PS3 for repairs? If so, your answers are here!!!

Jun 18, 2009
I just received my refurb from Sony today. It's a 60gb and I had to send it in because of YLoD. Right out of the box, within 30 seconds on xmb, the fans began to run on high and are extremely loud and annoying. I've been playing it all day waiting for it to die on me, but it's still going with the fans constantly on high. I started to let it fold and the fans roared up definitely to top speed. I never used to have this problem. My original system was very quiet. I read a couple posts from people with the same problem, but I was wondering if these symptoms often result in a repeat YLoD.

Yes, others have done that but how could you expect us to tell you 100% for sure???  The only way would be to either call Sony and get them to commit to it or send it to one of the third party repair places.

I just sent my PS3 in for the YLOD repair last week.

I received a refurbished one in the mail friday.

Last night my refurb YLOD'd on me so this makes 2 for me.

It's day 5 and I just received the "coffin".  And they sent it 2nd day air, with a 3 Day label in the box for me to send back.  This is fantastic. 

 

**actually, it's really day 10.  The first time I called in, however, Sony completely forgot to send anything.

Yeah, but that isn't the worst part.

 

I just had my Gall Bladder removed so I have to sit around for at least 1 week maybe 2.

 

So now I don't have anything to play and, I was really looking forward to playing some FFXII and  Infamous this week. Now I'm stuck playing around with my laptop. A last resort would be to pick up RE5 for the 360 but, I really don't want to spend any more money on games for a while.

Sorry about the gall bladder.  Can you rent a PS3 for a week or two.

Well, I jus sent the PS3 off today so if Sony works as fast as last time I should get a refurb by saturday. For now I think I'll resurrect my old website and maybe fool around on my laptop.
