YLOD HELP!!!

6 replies 114 views Edited Jul 26, 2013
Hello I recently got the YLOD and I can't seem to find out what's wrong. I added new thermal paste (Artic Silver) and still no fix. When I turn the system on the fan turns on then it stops, do I need a new power supply?? I have Tne Fat 80GB system 4USB + Card Readers . Please Help.

Adding thermal paste isn't a fix for YLOD. It's a preventative measure to try to avoid YLOD. The power supply may be the problem but usually it's the solder on the chips has cracked from heat stress and the chips aren't making proper contact with the motherboard. The only reliable fix is a professional reball. Check out www.endlesselectronics.org. Some may suggest the "Heat Gun fix" this is temporary at best and should only be used if you plan on getting a new system and want this one running long enough to do a back up or transfer.

The way I got the ylod was that I punched the ps3 because it froze on me and when I turned it back on I got ylod.

Good job. Maybe you warped the motherboard. Try another punch on the opposite side to flex it back.

I'll just wait for the ps4 Instead of fixing it.
