My Problem

Ps3 60gb original yellow light of death.

My Fix

It was long 5 hours because I went slow to lessen failure rate. If did it again it may take only 1-2 hours. It did fix it. It was great to get all the dust out everywhere, as well. Works great now.

My Advice

My Problem

Would not turn on. Paid someone $80 to fix it last time and they said that it was a thermal issue.

My Fix

Went well. Step-by-step instructions were an amazing asset! Unfortunately, the guy I took it to neglected to put about 8 screws back when reassembling it, so I got a little lost a couple times. Had . . .
