Repaired via YLOD guide and now unit overheats

Just ran through your YLOD guide for my PS3. Good news, PS3 turns on again. Bad news, after about a minute, than fan speeds up a ton and then the PS3 says its overheating and it shuts itself off. Please help. Thanks.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Disassembled and went back and re-did everything with the heat gun. Works now, less wi-fi - done for today, I'll fix that tomorrow.

Good job. Biggest issue with that repair, is that people are not "aggressive" enough.

My ps3 turns on. The fan kicks into it's highest setting slows down I hear a click and it goes yellow then the red light flashes. Is it overheating or the power supply? Could use some help.
