my ps3 will be 2 years old on the 23rd of this month and i havent had a problem with it *touches wood*
I got mine at the launch. (knocking on wood) Never hiccuped once.
I've repaired 4 now, out of 7 total YLOD's attempted. But 0/2 on No Video systems. Anyone here had success repairing a no video system?
I've also had mine since launch and I've put a lot of time on it. It's done some wacky things a couple times but nothing very damaging or permanent, I hope to keep it that way since my warranty just voided 3 months ago.

please help me out !!
allso if i follow this step and it mess something out will sony still fix it if i pay $150 ?????????
well its not a glue gun its a heat gun (like a hair dryer only 10x as hot) and a heat gun would be the minimum you could use for this.Originally Posted by Albanian
i saw a tutorial on youtube, but i dont own a hot air gun , how long would i need to hold it for a hair dryerOriginally Posted by Mick
i dont think a hair dryer will get it hot enough. you can try but timing will all be up to you.
hmm.... soooo if touched it ..... how would i know to hot is to hot ?? , intill it burns like shit , or its just really hot ??????Originally Posted by Mick
