my ps3 has developed a fault and ive got the infamous yellow light. this issue was raised on the BBC PROGRAMME Watchdog.

but seeing as my ps3 is out of warranty,sony wont touch it. well,they will but are charging £140 for the privaledge.

now the cheapest place ive found so far is console doctor who will charge £70 to fix my ps3 but i have to bear the cost of sending the machine.

so all in all,it might end up costing me £100.

anyone here does this kind of stuff or knows any reliable outfits that can fix it for cheaper?

its one of the earlier ps3 which came out so got all the extra memory card ports etc.

does it involve soldering stuff or just replacing stuff.

to be honest,im not too hot on that kinda stuff,but i'll take a guide and see if I can find someone who will do it for me.

would a electrician be able to do it,if he had a guide? I know a mate who is a electrician.

wanna pm me the guide,please?

ta for the replies folks :thumbsup:

I've tried the "fix" on two consoles, it didn't work for me.

I would send it to Console Doctor, it should only cost about £10 to send it by courier.
They pay for return delivery.

btw you can't buy a slim for £200. :)
