I am aware of what this is and I have been able to fix it before, but no I cannot be bothered.
Does anyone have any idea how much a mint ps3 40gb with no hard drive and a ylod will be worth? Or is it better to strip it and sell it in pieces?
Calling all computer techy guys for help please ! lol.

I sold mine with YLOD a few years back - got about 60 or 70 I think. Just check out the completed listings on ebay for what you'd get now.

There's an industry of people who will buy these off you, do the 'oven trick' and then sell it on.

Thanks for the reply. I did try and have a look on ebay but there is so much variation.
Thanks for the advice though- i may do the cooking thing.

Now that the new PS and XB are out, the prices of a brand new PS3 and 360 are plummeting to the 100 mark with a game if you are willing to shop about, prices will keep falling drastically as outlets want to shift old obsolete stock.

I doubt a YLOD fat with no hard drive, games or pads is going to be worth very much. For the price of a pad, a drive and a proper repair, you're not far off a new one with warranty, let alone the actual price for the broken ps3 itself.

You can get working ps3 for around 70_80, so I doubt you would get 60 for a none working.

You can laugh, but it works, it's due to a problem of wrong solder, the EU (spit) banned lead based solder and came up with some horrible safe concoction but due to older solder flow methods the new rubbish wasn't successful when used with the older flow solder machines, so after a while dry joints appeared on all sorts of computer equipment, flat screen monitors blowing power transistors fortunately the manufactures added an extra letter to their model numbers,this helps to work out if it is the solder problem ,multi pin video chips stop working, search the internet on HP G6000 Nvidia video faults, I presume the YOLD is a similar problem, I wouldn't put a laptop in the dishwasher but I have put many a PC keyboard in the washbasin to clean the spilt coffee and tea and pop off the underneath of the keyboard circuit board as the sugar eats the copper tracks, leave to dry for a week and keyboard ready to use again.

Ylods are usually repaired with a heat gun as said before it's a solder issue.
Bought mine two years ago repaired for 80,you wouldnt get 20 quid for it now.
Ps4 is the way to go.
Got mine :0)
