Posted March 28, Archived This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. Prev 1 2 Next Page 1 of 2. Gilksy1 has found a fix for this, and the fix is very similar to that of the Xbox RRoD requires use of heatgun. Doesn’t work for 60 gb PS3’s. Looks like there is plenty of demand for the fix.
Bring back the main forum list. The issue is apparently with the PS3 motherboard and not the PSU as initially suspected by many including myself. Do all Ylod’s arise outta the same issue?

Got the disc drive out and half the screws out but then the screwdriver head has been mangled with the force used to get the others out so now i have to buy another one. Call Sony Customer Support and ask them about it, they may refer you to a place you could get your disc removed for free, either that or atleast give you some tips on how to remove the disc yourself without damaging it.
Does anyone know how to get the disc out? Tomrock Why are you trolling? Firstly, you need to take the top off of it by removing the screw under the warranty sticker.

By dulluMarch 27, in Techzone. Got a new slim model already set up and now just downloading a few games from PSN again. If it’s still in warranty send it to Sony and tell them it’s in there if not you’ll have to take it apart.
Does involve lots of steps AgentZero Follow Forum Posts: I’m getting a mate to do it for me since he’s had to do it before. Aero Follow Forum Posts: This is what your PS3 looks like after being disassembled: Quick tip for ppl who haven’t referred the tutorial yet If you’re itching to pull apart and fix your Plastic Brick then please download the tutorial. So Sam, will you be trying to fix the thing all by yourself? Go To Topic Listing Techzone. If Your Warranty has expired than you should consider opening the console and taking the disc.
I also think it’s stupid how customers who buy one, for a higher price, get ripped off years later when people buying the console once it gets good can get a 3 year warranty and models that don’t get YLOD as easily.
When i hold the eject button it just turns on and then the yellow light kicks in and it turns itself off again without givening the disc a chance to eject
