    PS3 Yellow Light Disc Stuck?

    My PS3 got the yellow lights and my cd was stuck in. I got the ps3 replaced from sony by payin £131. How long will it take for them to send the CD back? They said to me 6 weeks but it usually is earlier. Has anyone had there CD returned earlier or late?

    Should have googled............there are easy ways of getting the disc out with YLOD before sending it out.

    Just hope they claim there was nothing in there.

    Yeah, all you had to do was the fan test, and it would have taken the game straight out while being YLOD

    Fan test doesn't work on all old PS3s e.g. the original 60GB PS3

    Correct, if you have the original 60GB model the fan test doesn't work - I had to sell my 60GB with the game still inside it.

    Oh right, never knew that. Works with my 40GB, when ever its gets YLOD

    Sony would have still accepted the console if you'd opened it to retrieve the game prior to testing.

    It doesn't really matter what anyone else says about how long they take to return your game tbh.
