Another tip! On fat ps3 completely powe it down with built in power button when not using it why keep it in standby burning up juice and wear on ur system also on newer slims with no power button buy aftermarket attachment power button they make for ps3 slims get it o amazon for cheap.

I don't believe completely powering down a PS3 is going to make a big impact on how long it lasts. In standby mode, it uses less than 1W of power, just like most modern electronics...

Alright, figured I'd bump this thread with a bit of bad news. My PS3 got the YLOD again and ate my "Dark Knight Rises" Blu-Ray today. Smiley Sad

 

Gonna withhold any negative comments about it at this point. I don't really have any bad things to say tbh, but that may differ after I speak to EE tomorrow depending on how it goes. I am supposed to be under warranty for 2 yrs and I know I followed directions on the break-in process. I will update this thread again afterwards.

 

I should have seen it coming though. The last few days I have had 3 random shutoffs while trying to play MOH Warfighter and of course watch Blu-Ray's.

 

Anyone else ever had to send there PS3 back in after 6 months?

Oddly enough, I had mine repaired in June 2012 and here I am now 6 months and the PS3 is dead again.  I got the reball for my ps3 with the replacement pads.  The sad thing is the only time I've used it was for the burn in and some demos.  I just contacted EE about the warranty but I'm pretty tired of dealing with this.  I should have just shelved it back then instead of trying to save it.  What a waste of money. 

 

 Also whenever a stressful demo was played, the fans would go full max all the time.  I e-mailed them about that and they said it was normal so I figured that was just something I had to live with.

Just an update on my ps3, I got the PS3 back from them under a warranty repair.  It seems to be working again but the fan goes to max after a few minutes in a game again although I haven't completed the burn in process yet.  I'm not very hopeful the fix will last as it's exhibiting the same behavior with the fans as last time

 

Don't waste your time repairing your systems, once it ylods just take the big hit and get a new system.  This slow burn of wasting cash and time is not worth it.  If I need it serviced again it'll be another UPS shipping fee down the drain and I would have pretty much have bought a new PS3 already.

when this company first started doing repairs i was very skeptical of them as i have dealt with electronics repair places for parts,etc for many years and know how shady many of them can be but EE has been around now for awhile with many happy customers and no matter how good these places are not every console can be repaired back to 100% and with the fans ramping up like you say i think they should have some type of refund policy in place for these consoles they just cant get back to 100% although they are few and far between..but still give it some time this time around as the fans could be ramping up just due to failed thermistors that control the fan and these cant be replaced in the ps3....

I forgot to come back and update this and now i see the new replies. My PS3 is doing good again so far. I have diligently followed the break-in process again. If it gives me anymore trouble it's gonna be retired on the shelf like a previous poster just said ^.

 

All in all though, EE does great work and I understand that no one is perfect. They still have top notch service IMO.

I have have the same experience with them also. You'll get ylod within six months of the repair & they will tell you that warranty is void because the system is unstable. This has also happened with some other of my friends who sent their system to EE. I got an ultra slim to replace the unrepairable PS3. The ultra slim is whisper quite & always cool.

I just got my PS3 back from them after various months of repair. They basically said the system is unstable and voided the warranty. It was still overheating and now its giving me this weird green screen.


I need to get it replaced now. Dont go with Endless Electronics.
