PS3 YLOD Fix is now available

September 2, 2009

Saw on Youtube that you can now fix the PS3 YLOD (Yellow Led Of Death) at home. The procedure is not for the technically challenged but it seems to work.

Full instructions can be found from the original author (Gilksy)can be found at the web site

This will help all that no longer have a valid warranty on the box, but I would suggest sending your PS3 back to Sony if you do. I have not tried it my self, and some people have reported that the fix is only temporary, but that it does work.

If the overlying cause of the PS3 overheating is not resolved, i.e. you cram it back in an enclosed space, ย it is only natural that it will overheat again and the YLOD will come back. So if you go through the trouble of fixing it yourself make sure it stays fixed by having sufficient airflow to the box.

YLOD seems to be a sprawling business on eBay, just search for PS3 YLOD and a ton of fixing services will show up ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you tried it? Did it work for you?
