Default Re: My PS3 just YLOD.

I am now officially a YLOD victim as well. Can't even get my new GT5 out (tried the turn off then leave finger on eject button, no luck).

No way I'm paying Sony $$ to fix. Will attempt the heat gun method tonight to get my disk out then sell the unit to EB as a scrap heap (they will pay $60 bucks even on YLOD).

Looks like it's time for a slim....at least these are built on 40nm tech and won't destroy the soldered parts as quickly...I hope.

F Sony and lead free soldered crap made in China since the PS3 is considered a 'childrens toy'.
