So my PS3 just shut itself down during a game of MW. I was trying to join an invite from Gaz and it it just beeped a lot and then the red light started flashing. I rebooted it and went to load MW again and it did it again. Turned it all off. Went away, came back, and now it won't re-boot at all. Just flashes red, then blue for a split second, then orange/yellow, and then back to flashing red. I assume this is the dreaded YLOD!!!???

I'm fking gutted, and they better be able to get it back to me ready for MW2!!! Looks like my PS2 and PES06 is going to get a good run out for a few weeks anyway, might need to grab an FPS to tide me over too!

I have a warranty still with HN, extended to 3 years. I'll call them and SONY helpline in the morning to see what I have to do. Fkn gutted. Devastated infact.

C U online in a few weeks I guess fellas. :spew:

So glad I had an interpreter close at hand!!! LOL

Only a 40GB. Got it Jan 2008, so has done just over a year + a half of use. I'd guess about 30+ days or so of game time, given I've hit about 23 days of MW alone. Not a bad innings but really, you would have expected more.

Interestingly its been blowing hard for about a year now, fan goes into overdrive a lot when I host on MW, figured that wasn't a good sign... LOL clearly it wasn't!

sorry to here that YN, mine did the same during this year, farkin annoy sony big time when it is in there to speed the slack douches up. i did and got it back inside a two week time period, i now do what john does - i just upgraded to the slim and have an EB warrenty where they just give you a new console in the 12 months warrenty and a preowned one for the year after that.

i got mine in Dec '08 for xmas and i had it for a month. it died, got it back 46 days later, had it for 2 weeks and it died again. got it back another 34 days later and hasnt broke since. its been freezing alot lately. these r the symptoms i had when my ps3 broke the 2nd time. Freezing, Laggy Gameplay. Im Scared that it will break on mw2 release

Thats interesting to hear mate. I had never considered actually opening it, figured I'd void the warranty or something if I needed it.

Absolutely gutted about FIFA10 in the short term too. That was going to tide me over until MW@, that and learning how to pwn with an M16!! LOL

Ah well, off to call the warranty ppl now and then SONY after I assume. Will report back findings later on. :smack:

oMG this is my BIGGEST fear.

I have a 2007 model 60 gigger... no extended warranty. When it goes, which could be anytime really, I'm just gonna buy a new slim one. But whether or not i have the cash for that purchase immediately is not determined. Highly likely that i'd be outta action for weeks.

Revs77
30-09-2009, 10:59 AM
I had an original 60gb PS3 which only just suffered from YLOD.
My warranty had run out and the biggest problem with sending it back to Sony was the time taken to repair.
I found this company:
www.beetronix.com.au in Syndey
He fixed my YLOD in 2 days and charged $160 and you get a 3 month warranty.
Highly recommend beetronix.

R5169
30-09-2009, 11:00 AM
honestly your better off (if your out of warrenty) just going to a local tech place and paying them to fix it.... they will do it alot cheaper than sony, quicker than sony and why the hell would you want another brand new one off sony when you know or a fact that it will just break and have to be replaced.


mine has already gone once, if it goes again and i dont rage out and blow up sony HQ i'll be doing that.

$100ish for it to be fixed by a tech shop
Vs.
$500 for a new ps3 + $150 for an extended warrenty for 3 years. and in that time i bet my bottom dollar it will break 2 times over


use your left over money and get em to chuck in a massive HD and buy yourself a few extra games/hookers

dutch47

Sorry to hear about your predicament YNWA. And this might sound insensitive, but there's a deal going for a $370 PS3 slim until midday tomorrow:

Not much of an option if you're still under warranty, but if anyone was thinking about taking SJ's advice then this might be a good avenue...

30-09-2009, 10:08 PM

Hahaha. Good to hear it's still under warranty. That's some sort of plus from it all i guess. That sucks mate. I can only think that mine is not too far away now so i hope it doesn't come in the time of MW2. That would just suck for anybody.

Goodluck with it all mate. Unlucky!

Well stage 1 in the process has already been harder than it should have been. I spoke to the warranty ppl and my details were not on their system, so I had to fax all my crap off and now have to wait 24 hours for my details to be loaded in (i.e for some lazy cnut to type in a few things to a database) before they will start processing my problem. All the while my PS3 is sitting gathering dust and quietly mocking me.

I nearly responded in a thread earlier about going on for game tonight. Dear oh dear. Thats just sad man.

See YNWA, that's your problem right there. There's a quota for how many working PS3's can connect to the PSN. Once that quota is exceeded, Sony just randomly makes one of them YLOD. So really it's all Ray's fault... :p

It's a similar thing with shoelaces. Once the worldwide quota for correctly tied shoelaces is exceeded, someone's shoelace will randomly come undone. True story.

Hate getting shit fixed under warranty .. it is PAINFULL.

After 2 weeks of dealing with HP support and the local people who are supposed to replace my fukd hard drive .. I leave work early today so the guy can come around with my PC all fixed and ready to go!!

What happens?? .. amongst a whole litany of stoopid fuk ups .. this totally clueless young guy turs up at my door with the hard drive and a little tool-kit and he is like "Here it is!!"

I say .. "Oh good!! So where's my PC then!!??"

He just looked at me all shaky and wide eyed... "err.. this is supposed to be a call out!?!?"

I said .. "Yes it is - but mate i even took the trouble today to REMIND you guys that you HAVE MY PC!!!!"

So even after having to remind them that .. they still fucked it up!!

Honestly man ... the customer service Ive experienced with this hard drive warranty replacement has been diabolically bad. Whats worse is I could have nipped down to the PC shop - grabbed a new hard drive and fixed it myself in about 2 hrs all up.. its now been 2 weeks!!

Add to that they refused to install the Win 7RC disc I took to them.. insisting I had to have an HP Vista factory image installed in the machine!! .... groan... ;)

02-10-2009, 06:09 PM
Had issues with a hp printer; took about 6 hours of tech support for them to realise that it couldn't be fixed by me and sent me a replacement. I told them they problem and that I wouldn't be able to fix it within the first 5 minutes. I almost sent them an invoice for wasting my time.

good luck yn getting your machine fixed.

Was in Eb yesterday and saw a promo for the new ps3 and a copy of cod4 thrown in for free. cheap barstards throwing in a game that has been out for 2+ years. And why I am bitching, why has cod4 never been made platnium, killzone 2 is platnium and has only been out for less than a year and they are still selling cod4 for $100 f**##$$***** barstards

HP would not replace my faulty hard drive until I surrended the old drive to them!

I argued the point with them but they wouldnt budge .. I tried to get the data off it but no luck.. and when I asked them what are they going to do with a broken hard drive?? They told me they would fix it and re-sell it!!

I had 900 gb of data on that drive :) Thankfully 90% of it was backed up.. but the point is - why cant I just get a PC shop somewhere to email HP and confirm that the drive is rooted - and then have them express post me a replacement... too simple!! :)

How fukd is that! Took 2 weeks to get something really simple fixed.

Thing is .. I reckon when I open up my machine next I will probably find the drive they have given me as a replacement is probably someone elses old drive.. reconditioned ;) What garantee have I go that they havent given me a brand new drive!?
