    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.

    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.

    i dont think a hair dryer will get it hot enough. you can try but timing will all be up to you.
