Default Ps3 ylod

Finally got the YLOD on my ps3 last night!

Cracked it open as its out of warranty and im not suprised, poor thing must have been choking with the amount of dust in it!!

Anyone here used the heatgun method to bring one back to life and if so how did it behave? just want it on long enough to grab a backup of my data!

I havent used heat gun on it before, but I did go for the oven baked motherboard method. Which worked long enough for me to get data off and trade in for a ps3 slim, which also got me 20 worth of reward points.

However, I assume as you are part of the blue dash league, you have access to a soldering iron, if this is the case, you could re-solder the contact points that have cracked. search youtube and you'll find a guide

I've been reading in to reflowing and god knows what else, think i just need a quick dirty fix for now

Can you give me some more info on what you did, i cant get a proper answer on times/temps!

Think resoldering is way above my soldering skills haha!

No probs, glad I could help.

I would say that if your oven is fan assisted, perhaps turn the temp down a little.

Reading the comments on this guide i have to say that, that there is a quality link...thanks....im still using one of the first ps3's to be released (my son has the slim) with never having a problem but i expect this to become an issue in the future. It's always sat on like a tray with 3 fans in and has always had the big chunky bank of fans fitted to the side of the machine. perhaps this is why its stayed fault free.... Thanks for the link...

I have never done it with PS, but I have used both methods (Heat Gun & Oven) with PC/ Laptop Motherboards.
Heat gun is better for quick fix, doesn't last as long, but you dont have as much preperation. You really have to strip the board down before you put it in the oven, also you need to prop it up, screw some metal prongs on each corner as legs, dont put it in upside down, as components will just fall out.
Good Luck.
