PS3 with YLOD. Brought from a friend. Worked well before overheating.

Motherboard probably not useable, not for long anyway once repaired i've read.

Case is in good condition.

60gb disk also works.

Blu-ray drive and laser are working.

Power cable.

2x av cables.

I cannot test the card readers, but they appear okay, and get very little use I imagine.

Can sell smaller spares too. I have every part here, but I haven't opened it yet... If there is anything you need, let me know.

Most interested in selling the blu-ray drive, housing, HDD etc.

Will sell whole, but sold as seen of course due to the nature of the item.

Let me know what you want, and I will state price, as per rules.

Also got SIXAXIS non-dual shock (very light, my favourite personally) controller in good condition. £20.

Cheers,

Matt

No, security seal broken... I don't know the previous history, but I was given it... It worked for a few weeks, then YLOD'd. I cleaned it all out, was dusty, but that's all, didn't have the know how to repair it. Didn't work again though, kinda as I expected.

I can supply pics if required.

£50 + postage for the PS3 and leads.

£22 posted for the SIXAXIS?

It IS broken, and will not fully boot up, just goes through the lights, bleeps three times and stays on standby. Sold as described. I don't know anything about it, bar from the fact it overheated, and YLOD'd... I have only had it a month, and use xbox more, so i'm just selling it.

No returns... Sold for spares.

I'd guess 2 years+ - it's the 60gb with the card readers and PS2 compatibility (when it worked!) - supposedly the best model.

I think the whole blu-ray drive is worth £45+ to be honest - can have the whole thing, the power lead, and 2 av cables for £50 + postage.

Just some advice for whoever buys it - earlier this year I successfully repaired around 5 PS3s with YLOD using these tutorials -

And personally I've found that, once repaired, they do last ages. One of them lasted for around 3 months, then got YLOD again. I just repeated the process and, amazingly, it came back to life again and has lasted another 6 months. All the others are still working after almost 9 months (my friends have them and haven't reported any problems).

Basically all you need is a heatgun (no, a hairdryer won't work) which will cost all of £20 and some decent thermal paste (Arctic Silver 5 or similar). I was watching the video as I was using the heatgun so that I used it for exactly the same length of time as the guy in the video, and made sure I had the motherboard on a thick wooden board where I could leave it flat and not touch it until it had completely cooled down. Once it's working make sure all the dust is cleaned out and keep it well ventilated to avoid a relapse!

Cheers, will be sure to check it out, but I do have a contact who said they can repair it for a very good price. Also reckons that modern warfare 2 is the biggest cause of YLOD

Hmmm, that's all I played on it (when I did play it!) for 4 weeks to be honest...

It's worth a go... Like I said though, I prefer my Xbox games, and rarely played on the PS3 in the month I had it.

Well, hopefully you'll be able to get it repaired, or sell the bits if not. There's been plenty of interest, i'm amazed! The laser alone seems to be worth £50+ though, and the controller £15/£20 too... let alone all the other parts.

Well my plan is to hopefully get it repaired succesfully and then give it to my son
#17
It'snot had much use I don't think, so hopefully it'll be successful :) - I would have had it repaired but I couldn't find anyone fairly priced locally, so I sold it to pay for the new Xbox slim in the end.
