Forums - Sony Discussion - YLOD finally bit me

 

If you have a PS3, did YLOD also got you?

Yes 15 50.00%
 
No 15 50.00%
 
Total:30

My fat 60gb ps3 died playing Gran Turismo 6, late 2013 to early 2014 about.

Lasted the whole generation before kicking the bucket so fair enough.

Sorry to hear that mate. It was good run tho.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?


Can't complain much, I had moved on from it since 2014 when I moved to PS4, rarely turned it on, quite possibly it would have died earlier if I was still playing it regularly. Will keep it for collection purpose and wishing my PS4 and Pro lives enough for the PS5 to have enough backlog that I won't miss PS4 even with BC.

My GameCube still works wonderfully.



Yes, I had it, on my launch console, one of the final years of the gen.

I fixed it myself, wasn't that hard. Bought new, good, cooling paste; disassembled most of the console; cleaned up the CPU and GPU; heated both chips with a paint-dryer for a while; let them cool for a day; applied new cooling paste (and wasn't stingy with it unlike how it was); reassembled the whole thing; turned it on and hoped for the best. Lo and behold it worked. And it worked fine, up until this day. I did also paste on some extra feet on the bottom (hard cardboard cubes couple centimeters big) to keep it raised for extra cooling on the bottom. I don't know if that actually worked.

Obviously I didn't come up with the solution myself, I googled it, and figured I had nothing to lose. I also don't know if there's a severity in YLoD's between different people and I just got lucky. But whatever.

Anyway, good luck with yours, I hope it's fixable.

EDIT: Saw your other reply. That's too bad.

I think I can still boot up my ps3 to play some old gems that aren't on ps4. Although the list of those gems got a lot shorter in recent years.

I played all I really wanted before moving on, the only one that I had stopped and later wanted to play was Yakuza 3 or 5, but I will play that on PS4 or PS5 with the remastered collection.
