Information I am a north side based professional PS3 repairer. I have been repairing PS3’s for years and I am more than accommodating for any problem you may be having, big or small. Brace yourself for a long read as I like to get everything out in the open! The repairs I offer are done with professional machinery and I only use high quality parts and materials, so don't be fooled by some people claiming they can do what I do. I am happy to prove that I am actually reballing your machine :) Repairs can be done on the spot within 2 hours depending on the repair. Replacement parts can be ordered in for your specific problem and this generally can take 5-7 working days. If I cannot fix your PS3 nobody but Sony can and in that situation they will simply replace your console for a slightly lower cost than a new PS3 (You will lose all save games and data). Repairs start at $20 minimum, so if there is something simple that’s all I will charge (This includes inspection for bigger repairs). YLOD repairs require an initial non-refundable $50 fee for parts and time and when the repair is complete you simply pay the rest. For parts ordering a deposit of up to 50% is required. I will beat any competitors advertised price! Xbox 360 Reball & Reflow repair also available for the same prices. My Prices YLOD/RLOD Repair: 1. Hot Air Reflow Basic reflow to the RSX chip.

The YLOD refers to the yellow light that flashes when your PS3 fails to boot up. Instead of going green, it flashes yellow then blinks red. The PS3 will not start and no matter how much you try because there is no connection to the processor anymore. This is only caused by one problem which is illustrated below. What causes the YLOD? The solder joints on the PS3 are lead free. This makes it extremely brittle when it comes to the intense heat that the PS3 creates. The motherboard on the older PS3s also tends to warp causing the already brittle solder joints to break causing a loss of connection to the processor which makes the PS3 not start up. Boards CECHA to CECHE have a higher risk of the YLOD due to added processors, wattage, board, processor speed and fan size. These consoles generally have a lower chance of repair due to their age and additional ware. When repaired the retention rate is lower than others unless reballed. It is EXTREMELY rare for a slim to have a YLOD, generally people mistake the problem with a different one. I personally have never seen one. Which repair method? The best way to completely fix the YLOD for longer than a few (>6) months is to reball it. This process involves desoldering the RSX chip on the PS3 and replacing the very brittle lead free solder with leaded solder (Or replacing the whole chip if required). This is a lengthy and risky process but the return on investment is well worth it. The PS3 will have an extremely slim chance of failing again with the new/stronger solder which is why I can provide a much longer warranty than the reflows. Reballing can be problematic as the board itself could get damaged when removing the chip or could already have enough damage that the solder points will no longer function (from being removed, damaged, bridged) resulting in an impossible connection. This means your PS3 is dead - forever. I recommend this for PS3s that constantly get the YLOD or can not be repaired with other methods. Hot Air Reflowing (the cheaper option) is simply reheating and subsequently melting the solder joints without removing the chip. Seeing as this is a completely blind with only minimal temperature guidance there are no warranties for this repair. IR Reflowing is the same as Hot Air Reflowing but it is instead done through a professional quality BGA reworking machine. The machine is programmed specifically for the RSX chip and the temperatures and timing are all adjusted to make the repair process as perfect as possible. As each PS3 is done in the exact same way (which is impossible for the Hot Air Reflow) there is a warranty for this procedure. This is the most popular and most recommended method of repair. Notes A thousand fans won't stop your PS3 from having a YLOD. Be sure to let me know if the PS3 you want repaired has already been repaired/opened beforehand as I'm not responsible for any other issues that may occur. Don't bring any cables with you please! Unless it's an Xbox repair! Your PS3's motherboard ID and the serial on your case will be archived to prevent fraudulent repairs. When calling/texting me about organising a date of repair etc please remember! And don't forget to text and confirm on the day with me. Warranty includes and is exclusive to a free repair (if possible) or replacement of laser. Warranty is halved on YLOD repairs if the console has been repaired before (I will know, trust me). By receiving a repair from me you are agreeing that I am not liable in any way for any damages or losses to your console and or parts.
