[Answered] PS3 YLOD with CFW 3.55 not by overheating help?
Hey guys, just messed up my 60gb ps3.. I bought it used after being repaired by lyod overheating and now the same thing happened,but under different circumstances.
i updated from an official 3.50 to the cfw 3.55, did everything correctly and started assasin's creed.As soon as gameplay started the ps3 crashed and got 3 beeps plus yellow light,but it wasn't from overheating!
what could have possibly happened! i'm worried that if it wasnt from overheating,how am i going to repair it ?
Well, its possible that the YLOD repair was bad, but surprisingly a YLOD can also be caused by software (namely, if say, important stuff is missing).
Since you were playing a game, I'm guessing the YLOD repair was shoddy, and was not the best - however I'm not sure how it was done. If it was reflowed - that may be why, best bet is to go for a reball.
I'm sorry guys, but I understood half of what you guys are talking about, just entered the ps3 scene..
this friend of mine did it, with no intention of ripping me off, and yes prob did a bad job at doing but got it for a great price. I'm really not sure about these options you're giving me, won't dare try them myself or even my friend.
I live in Italy and there's not much going on here so I really don't who i can rely to.. don't know who can reball it, what about the flash thing?
Thanks for your help.
I'm afraid to put in a game yet, what if i restore it to the official firmware? it went before. I'm so confused.
