Yeah, it's dead man :(

If I buy the Fat 60G PS3's and if I update it to the latest version, can a YLOD occur?

Oh crap that means I got the YLOD too. :(

I'll have to look into buying the new super slim version. Ugh.

There is a few bundles to choose from including the recently released White model and the GOW Red model coming March 12th.

I used to care but now I take a pill for that.I apologize for nothing.

Yeah I noticed a family bundle on Amazon the other day. It's $279.99 and comes with two games. It just sucks to get YLOD after 5 years of no problems.

I'll have to look into fixing my fat PS3 to take off all the data and restore to factory settings before selling it. :(

I got this also. I replaced the power supply and nothing has changed, so I'll probably send it somewhere to get repaired.


In my phat PS3, I upgraded the 60gig HDD to a 500gig one. I have a Slim now, can I put an HDD from a phat into a Slim?

Reflowing is just heating without removing to have the solder melt in place and then flow back into place.

Reballing is a complete replacement of the bad solder that caused the problem.

Generally you want lead in it so it can deal with the expanding and contracting without cracking like it currently does..
