PS3 Troubleshooting – Ylod fixes the top 5 I Have Found

With all new technology there are teething issues, and the ps3 is no different. The playstation has a few issues that can affect it such as screen freezing and various colored light errors. If you are suffering with the yellow light of death and are looking for some ylod fixes then look no more as here are the top 5 for you.

1. Unplug your console. Leave for five minutes then you can plug it back in. You will be surprised how many times this can fix the ps3 ylod.

2. Check your console for signs of overheating, touch the body of the console to see if it is very hot. If so turn it off for an hour or so to let it cool down. Also check the vents and make certain that there isn’t a build up of dust on them and that air can circulate freely around your ps3.

3. Try removing the hard drive from your playstation 3. Make sure you unplug the console first. There are loads of tutorials online which will show you how to do this. Then replace the drive, you may need to do this a couple of times. If this hasn’t helped you may have an issue with your motherboard. Don’t worry as this can still be fixed.

4. Send your console back to Sony for repair. Just check that you have a warranty that is in date unless you want to give them $ 150 to fix it. There are a couple of downsides to this method though, you will not see your console for about 6 weeks and when you do it will likely be a refurbished model and not your own console. You will lose your saved games and information as they often wipe the hard drive. Oh and did I mention the cost.

5. It is possible to fix the ps3 ylod by yourself. However I do suggest that you use some sort of repair manual from a trusted source and not to start taking your ps3 apart without one. One such guide has been written by Rob Sheffield and I have used it in the past and it worked a treat. Rob has been repairing game consoles for years now and uses the same methods that Sony use. It is a very thorough guide and covers all aspects of playstation repair. Utilizing step by step instructions complemented with videos it really made the whole process a lot easier and stress free.
