deeracars, first you will have to remember that there are a few things that can cause the YLOD. A few of them are:

A dead or disconnected HDD

Cold-Joint between the CPU/RSX/EE(If your console has one)

A dead power supply

Overheating

Corrupted NAND Flash

You most likely have issues with your GPU processor. It is a flip chip design and the issue could be the solder bumps between the IC and the substrate. A reflow might fix it for a while. The only repair that would fix it permanently is a new BGA. Try this repair first
