Filksy1 involve lots of steps So I’ve got absolutely no way to access the data other than by repairing the console and then transferring the data when it’s up and running.
Doing something like this would only hurt the game store. This is what your PS3 looks like after being disassembled: The issue is apparently with the PS3 motherboard and not the PSU as initially suspected by many including myself.
No, create an account now.
Just strip it down and give it some heat gun treatment. Here’s a useful explination of that method I found: Yeah I think I’ll be blowing my new xbox and ps3 out. Some people have said that the HDD failure can cause it only for that to be dispelled by another poster. These two options don’t really work. When the PS3 hardware heats up the solder expands ever so slightly as any metal does and when it cools down it contracts. If it’s proper fubar then strip it down again and take the drive out.

Strangely the problem bears striking similarity to the RROD that xbox users have been plagued with time memorial. Then theres a few more screws on another layer, remove the disk drive, remove more screws and your done: But with the real service mode, maybe you can marry new BD drives to your board.
Can someone plz rehost the YLOD file plz!! I initially tried take a non-intrusive approach, contacting the console vendor to see if they would take a return and also Sony to see what they could offer.
When i hold the eject button it just turns on and then the yellow light kicks in and it turns itself ylos again without givening the disc a chance to eject As for the trapped disc, there are two methods I’ve found but non of which work for the launch model PS3. I’ve seen others use gilksy11 oven set at a particular temperature and place the main motherboard in gilkxy1 for a duration of time.
All times are GMT After a lot of research I’ve found many claming that their Sony repaired consoles went back to the YLOD after only a few months. Just have to remeber where i put my screw driver if not wack out the butcher knife shoemen22 Make sure you gjlksy1 the different type of screws separate and remember where each one went.
This is why I always clean mine out.
Yellow Light of death and stuck disk HELP!!!
I also found posts of others literally swapping their dead PS3 HDD’s into newly purchased PS3’s and the console asked to perform a reformat.
Posted March 29, I also think it’s stupid how customers who buy one, for a higher price, get ripped off years later when people buying the console once it gets good can get a 3 year warranty and models that don’t get YLOD as easily.
I don’t want ylid deal with more dead ypod. Looks like the XMB direct transfer from one console to another is the best sure fire way to get everything transferred.
There were many people talking about how they scammed their stores by using the ‘towel around the PS3 and shooting a hair dryer into the vents for 20 mins” method, which would get ggilksy1 system working for a few hours enough to back up data and sell it as a working console to a game shop.
My game store also mentioned that I should remove the HDD before sending the console back to Sony because there have been many cases of Sony sending consoles back with wiped HDDs. Read about them now! It turns out that this aluminum is a plate covering the chips below with thermal paste between.
