This isn’t the fix for me, but if you want to chance it you might get enough time for it to turn on and backup the data before it gliksy1 forever.

I initially tried take a non-intrusive gilksg1, contacting the console vendor to see if they would take a return and also Sony to see what they could offer. These two options don’t really work. It’s the most cost efficient, fastest chance of getting my data and disc back. I don’t see it as a good option.

Additional info not in the guide source: 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. There were others that used dix hairdryer to heat up the warranty seal and take a blade to remove it, then stick it to wax paper and disassembled the system, repaired it and put the sticker back on so they weren’t hindered by gilkys1 options lost after breaking the seal.

I heard that if you hold the eject button down as you turn the main power switch on in the back the disc will eject on a ylod ps3.

Would you like to get all the new buzz from Dashhacks in your email each day? Doing something like this would only hurt the game store. Does involve lots of steps Senture Wise Guy Joined: Posted March 29, After researching methods to backup the HDD, it turns out that only the source console can access the data. Purchase a brand new PS3. 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.

Yellow Light of death and stuck disk HELP!!!

By dulluMarch 27, in Techzone. A member of staff at my local game store had mastered a method of using two paper clips fashioned to go into the drive slot and lift the disc and pull out. I tried to intentionally remove this plate but it’s on really tight and wouldn’t budge so I’ll skip that ‘extra sure’ step.

Got the disc drive out and half the screws out but then the screwdriver head has been mangled with the force used to get the others out so now i have to buy another one. Lead free solder melts at a slightly higher temperature so around oF is where you’ll start see melting regular solder is at about oC.

Possible YLoD Fix! – Techzone –

So Sam, will you be trying to fix the thing all by yourself? The issue is apparently with the PS3 motherboard and not the PSU as initially suspected by many including myself.

Quick tip for ppl who haven’t referred the tutorial yet I’ve also seem too many posts saying that this can irreparably damage your console, so it can work for a few hours but once it breaks you can’t get it working ever again. Does anyone know how to get the disc out? Every time you reflow solder you burn off a little of the flux ifx inside the solder, so applying flux before starting your reflow is also going to help with how long the fix lasts. Jun 30, at 7: If you swap the motherboard your BD Drive won’t work.


After flx lot of research I’ve found many claming that their Sony repaired consoles went back to the YLOD after only a few months.
