I Have a fat ps3, I want to fix it.
I need help knowing if its the fan or cord outlets or if i need the ylod kit. I tried playing it and the light flash yellow a few times.
Is this a good question?
DeVante, from your scant description, I suppose that it is possible that it is your fan, but experience tells me that you most likely require a YLOD fix. Remember that the YLOD usually requires a lot more than to replace the thermal paste. The YLOD is generated by cracked solder connections on the CPU/GPU. Follow this guide here for the repair. So clean out your vents, clean your fan, apply the YLOD fix, apply new thermal paste, and re-evaluate. Take your time when fixing it and look through the guide a fix times before you attempt this. Always keep in mind that this fix should be considered a temporary fix. A reflow would be a more permanent fix. Hope this helps, good luck.
