I successfully repaired my ylod with the oven method. I also made my own thermal compound with teflon paste, copper shavings,and graphite. Better than what you can buy.


Congrats MacGyver, but I don't believe you are going to do any better than the carbon based pastes available, since carbon is nature's best conductor...

I used my wife's hairdryer and it fixed it for now....I was not gonna give sony another $120 for something not my fault.


There are places that will do the REBALL for less than wha sony charges for an unreliable refurbished console.

 

What you did was a reflow, and is a band-aid fix. And over time you're just going to YLOD again and again and at some point the reflow isn't going to work.

 

Consider it. Or buy a new PS3.... or don't
