Thread: PS3 Yellow light of death - repair

    PS3 Yellow light of death - repair

    Thinking I might get a fault PS3 with the YLOD and repair it as most of the time its a relatively simple fix - did something similar on a ps2.

    Does anyone have any experience of doing this or know someone that has?

    wasnt this caused by the motherboard solder cracking under high heat or was that the x360?
