Re: Unofficial Yellow Light of Death [YLOD] Informative (Still) Thread **R.I.P.**

Jul 14, 2012
Recent victim here.

IFudge = May 07 = 60gig = July 12

Sent to Sony once for a disc read error problem 2 years ago for $150. Received my same unit back.

Going back now for a refurb to Sony for 130 ( shipped off to them today). If it died again, I will learn to survive without BC and get a slim. Sucks I haven't backed up my data in two years as well, but such is life.

Thanks for this thread, I read the entire thing. Just happy my PS3 lasted 5 years.

My refurb SONY sent in 2008 finally died. I have commandeered my daughter's Slim until I can get mine fixed. Mine died in Feb.

you mean you bought another ps3 after your first one broke? or did you send your first one for repairs?

Hi:

I have 2 PLAYSTATION 3 60Gb that broke. After that, I bought a PS3 Slim and it's broken too! I tried to take care of the Systems but dor some reason just died. My first PLAYSTATION 3 is geting fixed and acording to the Engineer, the Possibilities to be fixed are good. IF so, I will give them my other PLAYSTATION 3 60GB. Later I will tell you about it.

Thanks

Red 5.
