Doc,

It would not hurt one bit to take it apart, remove all heatsinks and reapply them with fresh paste. One could have come loose causing your YLOD. I have heard this can fix it. Pain in the rear to service the ps3 though. Plenty of youtube vids on the subject.

I'm still pissed that this happened.
u mad bro?

Sorry it had to be done,.

RIP DoubleD's PS3

Naw. I went through this last year. It was 250AUD for me, just out of warranty. I had a joke of an EB extended warranty (joke is it replaces the first year of manufacturer warranty so 3 years becomes 2)

Worse thing is they make you ship back the HDD and if you can't get your saves off it, you lose them all. ::

The better these consoles become the less reliable they seem to be. The next generation of consoles will probably last 3 months before they overheat and need replacing.

I've got a 20 year old master system that's never had any issues and still works today.

Yea, I know. I thought about fixing it myself, but it would void the warranty if I remove the top.

EDIT: Hey wait...my warranty is already gone. I'm going to see if I can fix this tonight.

Its a shame that not excesivly used hardware, which has not been throwed around, breaks just like that.
And Expensive one too. I hope my 360 won't break...(Yet I have one model before slims, which is suppose to be better than old ones..)

I am not sure If I would take another one if I was You(if not fixable). Maybe just wait for next generation? This one seems to be getting dry with PC regaining the lead recently

I've had this one for awhile. All in all, I'm pretty please with getting a PS3 over an xbox.

The only issue with that is if you can't fix it Sony might not accept your old console as a trade in if you tampered with it...
