Well my luck finally ran out. I finally finished the latest stage of the second job and turned on the ps3 last night for the first time in weeks. Yellow light of death!! DAMN IT. I have an original 360 and lucked out never to get the rrod, but my ps3 gets it.

 

 

Anyways, I'm stuck between sending it in to get fixed or just buying a new one. Does anyone know if anyone buys machines that have ylod?

You can get it fixed for $150 by Sony, or you could do what i did. Reflow the board and then trade it in at gamestop.:madgrin:

 

There are lots of people that buy the ylod, to fix and sell also.

you got a link to the reflow procedure?

 

Youtube it. Look for the 6 part onw by a guy named gilsky our something like that. Worries real good...for awhile.

 

Best bet, get a replacement.

Thanks, gents. After reading a bit, I'll just send it in to get fixed. Chaps my ass to be without for a few weeks, but it looks to be the best option.

 

Sounds like you might be up for some racing.!!?? :thumb:

Don't reflow it.... only works for a month or so. Just get it fixed or trade it in broke for a new one.

 

Mine lasted long enough to get my game out. Then crapped out a few hours later.

Well I got sony called and they are sending the box. The girl was a little put off by the fact I made her write down what game was in there, and made her repeat it multiple times. LOL It is only 99 bucks. The funny part was the whole new system at the beginning for resetting pw's and directing people to the website for outage info.

 

 

Chili, I may just turn on some Forza. Most likely I will work on my honey-do list so I can veg out without distractions when I get it back.

It's only $99 to get a new one?
