Is it ylod? (ps3 can only works after warmup)
hello guys, my ps3 got a problem just like YLOD but i'm not sure, it isn't totally death.
it's a long story sorry about that, but i just want to give more information about my PS3
40gb white ps3 brought in 2008, the model number is CECHH12,
yea it's a Hong Kong concole and i'm HK too. not many discuss about ylod in ps community hk so i finally here
upgraded to a 250gb hdd myself years before. and it was running totally normal. but...
about half year before,
sometimes when i start up the ps3, it beep beep beep and became blink red.
just have to touch the power twice and it would start again normal.
appeared only about once a week so i didn't mind that at that time.
but recently it became very bad, i've uploaded a video about mine ps3
http://youtu.be/7Q4Z-vp9Bjs (kept trying and it started up in 1:08~)
to start it up, i have to try 10+ times just like the video.
(my ps3 become this situation for about 10 days, but i am still playing gta online everyday )
there is 2 way i can run a game...
A. if i run a game just after the system can start.
it beepbeepbeep and blink red again.
taking me to a system check on the next start up.
after the system check and restart, most the time i can run a game normal.
B. or if i wait about 5 minutes in xmb just after the system can start.
i can run game normally.
make me feels that somekind of wormup is needed before i can run a game.
i've dug around the internet for YLOD info.
notice that most of ylod is because overheat, or a little chance of hdd/power supply failure.
maybe overheated before made my ps3 become like this, but being heat now won't bring too much problem i think, i am still playing gta online 8+ hours constantly, i can also start the console normally when it's still heat.
how do i know if it's hdd/power failure?
anything i can try to fix this?
or it's confirmed YLOD that i can only try the heat gun method?
i can just play it until totally dead.
actually i'm not sending it to sony for another pre-ylod machine. lol
may be i'll buy a new one but the ps4 is coming, err....
thanks for reading and if u have any idea may help, just leave me a message.
Is this a good question?
