I’d suggest upgrading to a newer model PS3 while you’re at it, and restoring your data onto that.

Got it working for 4 months before I got the ylod again. Take that into consideration when deciding if you want to fix your system.

I’ve always looked after it and cleaned it regularly, but once that dust is inside its not coming out unless you take it completely apart. Email me when someone replies.

I’m waiting for my Arctic gikksy paste to come so i wont be doing anything until the weekend but i have stripped my PS3 down just now glksy preparation for it and to get familiar with what i will be doing: Also he says to make sure the thermal pads go back on but mine hasn’t got them so is this the difference between the 60GB he used and mine being newer?


First get familiar with Gilksy’s youtube videos here: It’s very likely that they’ll be able to fix it, unless your GPU is completely fried, or your HDD is corrupted, but the chances of that happening is thankfully rather slim.

They weren’t able to save my ps3, possibly because the first place i took it to messed it up beyond repair, but gophermods has got to be the company i’ve dealt with in years. One thing i cant understand is the heating of the board and those 4 little chips next to the 2 larger ones as they look fine and are well soldered on still.

I followed his guide as well. I’m more upset then anything tho, looking at her now next to me in several bits: No point it starting threads saying ”new HDD broke my console” or ”I’m taking Sony to court” XD I’m still a loyal fan and plan on being back up this weekend: Either way, you’re going to end up with a new PS3, so if you want your old saves back, It’d be worth checking out a reflow. Anyhow my little chips looked instact and fine as well.

If you want a long-term repair with a lifetime warranty then look into rsolpc. Using a hoover on a vent doesn’t do one thing but clean whats off the vent itself! So i will regularly open her up now to give it a proper clean.

Looking for something else?

Buy a Heat Gun with adjustable temperature. What Hardrive should I buy for PS3? They fixed it, it cost me more than it would have to switch to a slim, but I got the better deal.

We are all wishing her a speedy recovery: Gilksy instructs the use of C without the use of non-cleaning flux or C with the use of non-clean flux.

But i can see and as far as i know all 40gg needs doing is the thermal paste on the chips. Just do the reflow big boy it should bring her back to life again, i have to say it made me sad when I read your post the otherday. Log In Sign Up. Worked like a charm, and I was able to transfer everything to a new Slim. More topics from this board Gllksy to join in?

Keep me logged in on this device. The Motherboard was just as bad with almost mold like looking lumps of dust stuck to all the main chips and processors i had to take it outside and gently blow it gillksy off and then some of it would not move i had to use a soft brush being very gentle.

40GB YLoD self fix queries.

Sony can take the slims and the super slims and shove them up their asses. Sadly my 60gb only lasted a further two weeks so I gave up had backed up all saves by this point and had it replaced under CP.

I say any type of thermal paste because you only need a temorary fix, so top of the line or bottom of the barrel won’t make a damn bit of difference.
