Yellow Light of Death Repair
I bought the kit and followed the guide and got it back up and working in a couple hours. I'm a total novice with this stuff and it was pretty easy. I must have a different model so some screens were off but with some educated guessing I must have done the right thing(s). Came out with a couple extra screws but again, didn't seems to hurt. Have used the PS3 for a hour or two at a time for a couple sessions and still working great. Hopefully it will stick. Last time I sent it out for a repair ($80) and the tech shop fixed it then, and it lasted about 6 months before YLOD again. I sort of don't expect this to be a long term fix, but now I know what to do to fix until a cheaper PS3 arrives... thanks iFixIt!
