Gophermods has a listing for their reball service, but it's been "coming very soon" for several months now.

 

Anyways, as long as those shops on ebay have good reviews, I would go for it.

I actually gave gophermods a call before buying daggerPCs service. Anyways gophermods told me it would be 6 months to a year before their reball service would be available. So until then daggerPC is our best bet as of right now.

So is gophermods $70.00 YLOD fix just a reflow of the solder then since there reballing service is listed at $139 but not yet available?

 

Im curious as to the succes rate of there current fix & whats the longest a system has lasted after they did the fix. Although im sure no ps3 is gonna last the same amount of time.

I just got the YLOD and i am quite certain that all those frozen screens in FALLOUT NEW VEGAS had something to do with it cause they force me to turn off my ps3. I dont live in the US so the only thing i can do is use my ps3 as a door stopper cause it is quite heavy.....meh actually going to take it today to my local store...they repair ps3 there cause if i send it to sony buying  a new console would end up being cheaper

ok..  i'm new to this problem..

 

had my PS3 for about 9 months..  .. and what's this yellow ring of death thing??..     like the 360 red ring of deatH??

 

 

 

i owned various game system.. and they all lasted for me with my own chunky PS2 reaching10 yr old!!

 

 

 

just a question..    for those to had the problem   you didn't put your ps3 into something like this.. did you??

put your hand behind the ps3 when it's on..  now imagine in a box with no/limited ventilation?? like the 1st picture

 

**also.. i bought mine at costco.. if it failed i just brought it back then get a new one

I spoke with branden last night he has had some things going on with sick family members and dropped his phone in some eggnog so he just got a new phone yesterday and is trying to catch up with all of the messages he is not trying to scam anyone. Look at it this way he got in 100 ps3s to repair in like 3 weeks that's not accounting for his local customers and his bulbs burnt out and probably 35-50% of those 100 have had previous reflows done on them making a reball less successful. So yeah it took a little more time than the 3 weeks but if he had to order a motherboard for your system he was at the mercy of the other seller getting it to him quickly. He also said he had an employee that was supposed to answer email and eBay messages as he was busy trying to fix systems and that he would only answer email that said employee could not.
