    ylod 40gb ps3. fix?

    My stepsons 40gb ps3 has just died. ylod. Does anyone know of a reliable and not expensive repair service. I took it apart and there almost no dust in there so not too sure the actual problem, but i assume it still overheated. Dont fancy trying to repair myself as cant see how to get to the actual motherboard.

    And no, i wont be buying him another 360, had 3, and all were sold on as were as much use as doorstops in this house.

    funny you should say that the ps3 does the same job in my house... a door stop.

    Google "Gilksy's YLoD Repair Guide". It's not really that hard to do. I have done several now.

    just been checking that out. seems fairly straight forward. but either i pay out £30 for the equipment, or pay £50 or so to have it done properly?

    £50 is a good price.
