Question About Ylod I Just Fixed On My Ps3
Posted 20 June 2010 - 05:32 PM
Other quick questions. What's the difference between the YLOD and Red flashing error.
Is the no video error linked to the same processor problem also?
Basically, can YLOD, Red Flashing and No Video all be fixed through the same process?

YLOD's fixed via reflow always seem to come back. The amount of time it takes depends on how you did the reflow. A hot air station seems to keep them going for about a month, while dark IR can keep them running for 1-3 months.
Your best bet is a reball with leaded solder, swapping the crappy 15 blade fan for a 19 blade, upping the speed of the fan and keeping the system well cleaned and well ventillated. I bought a YLOD and I managed to keep it running for about 6 months. I did reflow it again just to ensure the connections were still good, and I took it apart every month and cleaned it out with compressed air (once a week if I had been playing a lot of games on it).
The times I've mentioned just seem to be averages that I've found on other forums.
