Gilksy’s Playstation 3 (PS3) Yellow Light of Death (YLOD) Fix and Repair Guide
This topic is locked from further discussion. True that, Opening PS3 is very very easy.
Strangely the problem bears striking similarity to the RROD that xbox users have been plagued with time memorial. When i hold the eject button it just turns on and then the yellow light kicks in and it turns itself off again without givening the disc a chance to eject If Your Warranty has expired than you should consider opening the console and taking the disc.
Does anyone know how to get the disc out?
Possible YLoD Fix! – Techzone –
I heard that if you hold the eject button down as you turn the main power switch on in the back the disc will eject on a ylod ps3.
Call Sony Customer Support and ask them about it, they gilks1y refer you to a place you could get your disc removed for free, either that or atleast give you some tips on how to remove the disc yourself without damaging it.
