what are the Things I should do to prevent my PS3 from YLOD'ing and vice versa

  • sir/mam,

    pano po maiiwasan ang YLOD sa PS3. I got mine this week and i want to know things i should and shouldn't do as far as YLOD problem is concerned. thanks po.
  • anong model ng ps3 mo? ylod mas prone sa mga unang models with bc.
  • don't use it... seriously, YLOD is random, so we'll never know for sure whether we get YLOD or not to our PS3, much better if you use yours for 3hrs max.
  • malakas naman ang fan ng ps3 e ang reason lang nmn kaya nag Y-YLOD and ps3 kc di enuf ung hangin para na pumapasok sa console so nagooverheat. basta ilagay mo lang ung ps3 mo sa isang lugar na open and at least nadadaanan ng hangin. ung sakin may sariling table sa tabi ng tv ko so nakakahinga ung console. and check mo ung vents kung clogged ng dust every 3 to 4 weeks tapos vacuum mo lng and dapat ung pinaka mahinang setting nung vacuum. ilang taon na rin ung ps3 ko and halos araw araw naglalaro ako ng over 5 hours lalo na pag weekend 12 hours bukas un or sobra pa and never pang nagkaproblema.
  • Meron din palang overheating issues yung PS3. Hindi kaya dahil sa tropical yung climate natin dito or talagang it happens to any console, regardless of topography?

    Btw, some say that changing to a higher capacity HDD can contribute to the problem... is there any truth behind this?

  • pray? i think..
    these measures are not going to prevent damages to your ps3, but will only lengthen its life..your ps3 will eventually get YLOD or any other hardware failure..

    well to keep it positive, ive been doing this..
    1. play for at least 4hrs..5hrs maximum..
    2. after shutting down, let the ps3 cool down before turning the switch off..
    3. i don't leave discs inside the ps3 when it's not in use..
    4. cover the ps3 when not in use to avoid dust accumulation (kung maalikabok sa bahay nyo)

    again these are just suggestions..some may not apply to your standards..

  • tamang mtce lang bro, make sure wag mapupuno ng alikabok ang unit mo at tamang ventilation lang kahit di mo tapatan ng electric fan,

    I played my unit for maximum of 8 hrs, di naman nasira, pero tamang mtce after non

    luckily gumagana pa rin naman, as far as I know YLOD occured sa mga unang labas ng PS3

  • pwede bang ipa rma or ibalik sa pinagbilhan pag nag ylod?
  • ylod, mas prone un unang labas na ps3 nun.. kaya slim version nalang bblin nio kung gs2 nio makaiwas sa ylod
  • anong game po ba nakaka-YLOD sa mga 1st gen na ps3? masubukan nga, hindi pa kasi na-YLOD yung launch model ko na 20GB..
  • guys, meron na kami solution for YLODed na ps3.. contact nio lng kami..


    here's my daugther's ym: private_charisse1828@yahoo.com

    nakapagayos na kami ng isa... why dont we try?? db??? malay natin, maayos pa yung mga YLODed na ps3....

    thanks mga bro...
  • guys yung aking ps3 ang lakas na ng fan.... parang naka overdrive... tapos one time nag hang siya wen i was playing uncharted...
  • I just met Mr. YLOD yesterday.... I browse the net for some solution...
    and i got lucky! I tried this 1 guide from the net and it works hahahahaha...
    Now im not worrying any YLOD anymore... My PS3 is like New ^_^
  • anong guide yan..?
  • The most effective solution to YLOD is reballing the PS3's GPU and CPU which are BGAs with high quality solder.
  • ang problema kasi dito sa pinas eh!
    walang gumagawa nang Reballing sa GPU and GPU,
    i refer sa mga hindi pa nakakaranas nang YLOD gawin po natin kapag wala nang warranty linisan po natin yung PS3
    open it at pagkatapos palitan nang mas maganda na thermal paste katulad nang arctic silver 5 thermal compound.
  • what is YLOD anyway?
  • wag gamitan ng jailbreak.... stay orig!!!!
  • tapatan mo ng electric fan or gamitan ng laptop cooler
  • fox ylod means yellow light of death.
  • all ps3 fat versions can be ylod prone..because fat gpu board or mother board when overheated signals a ylod.pero ang repaire uses also a heating process...but meron n application ng thermal compound..so pg narepaire n gud sya for 3hrs use max tpos pahinga n ulit unit...
  • Just Want to Share.....


    Used Xenon Xbox 360 who's very common to Overheat pero nagawan ko ng paraan na di mag overheat
    1. modified internal fan to 12v
    2. installed a high rpm 120cm fan on top
    3. coin trick on anand chip
    4. heatsinks on all memory.

    overcomed ko 3rl(overheat sa XBOX played unlimited hours )

    cons: maingay nga lang.
    and now retired na ako sa xbox
    now bought a PS3 Slim 320gb. and sabi nila malamig na daw yung version na ito, but to my opinion maiinit pa rin sya.

    para pa rin syang laptop kung uminit.

    so its time to modify.

    share ko lang. ive'd watch sa youtube some modification on cooling. may nakita me doon na binutasan yung ibabaw na ps3 w/ fan na nakatutok dun sa internal fan.

    almost same sa setup ko sa xbox, but this time its not applicable, muntikan ko ng gawin yun

    binuksan ko yung PS3 and studied the inside part of the unit. nakita ko na yung intake vents nya is on the sides w/c means if binutasan mo sya sa sa ibabaw mawawalan ng cooling yung buong board and including the hardisk since pinatay mo yung vent system nung PS3. malamig nga yung cpu and gpu mo. but never take the risk of motherboard flexing. kasi yung motherboard naman ang iinit and other parts.

    sensya na humahaba. pero eto na lang ginawa ko.

    if you can research on youtube on how to bypass the fans sa internal cooler. w/c converts the ps3 fans to full speed.

    almost pareho lang ginawa ko but i put a dual toggle switch . if switch left original fan speed and if switch right full fan speed. middle part is off. never use it.

    thats the best DIY cooling that i can think off. w/ out compramising the internal design of the vents. some may comment that the load will put pressure on the PSU of the PS3.

    I don't think so. If I Were to Build a Unit w/ a 100watts load should i put a 100watts PSU. no.... ang tanga ko naman if wala ako allowance na ilalagay. so Possibly may Allowance na binigay ang PS3 sa Unit nila and Fan is a small load to compute. wag lang vacuum cleaner ang ilalagay mo hehehhe

    Alternate na Pwede nyong ilagay dun sa Toggle Switch is a Fan Speed Controller. but thats another Wiring Configuration.

    if techie ka madali lang if not don't try it. by the Way I.T. Technical nga pala ako baka kasi akala nyo sa tabi tabi lang yung experience ko.

    some may comment on this post. sorry just wanna share and this is my opinion.

    cons: Maingay nga lang yung Fan ng PS3 @ Full Speed but if Fan Controller gamit mo you can set it to your choice. as for me I Still have a choice of Original Speed(for Games Installation,downloading) and Full Speed (Gaming, Watching HD).

    Questions are Free but not insulting.

    PM me if Needed.

    Another Con: Mabilis magdumi yung PS3.Cleaning Suggestion ( Punta ka Shell, Caltex or Petron then pa Bugahan mo sa Mechanic yung mga Vents ng PS3 mo. it only takes 30 seconds to clean it up or You can just Manually Clean it by Openning it if Techie ka.
  • Ako... ang ginagawa ko sa PS3 slim ko ay tinatapatan ko lang ng electric fan... dati madalas natutulugan ko yung nilalaro ko at naiiwan siya ng bukas ng at least 8hrs. and still wala pa din problems ang PS3 ko, pero ngayon natuto na ako gamitin yung auto shut down feature hehehe! gaya ng sabi nila just keep the vents clean tapos kapag tapos na maglaro pacool down mo muna then ibalik na sa box (although medyo hassle) or takpan para di maalikabukan at nabasa ko dati na wag ipapatong ang PS3 mo sa mga gamit ng gaya ng carpet o anu man bagay na may materials na maaring pumasok sa vent ng PS3 mo.

  • mga sir question

    ive been experiencing yun auto shut down sa ps3 kakaopen ko lang wala pa 1 minute bigla mamamatay then mag beep 3x and flashing red. minsan twice pa mauulet and take note kakaopen ko lang po ng unit dpa nagiinit. what might be the problem properly shut down naman always yun unit i never left a bd game after we play.

    btw my ps3 is a 80gb fat. hd problem po kaya or sa exhaust/fans system need your help guru's thanks.
  • @^ ganyan din 1st ps3 ko 80 gb nag auto-shutdown then yellow light pero working pa naman pero dun na rin papunta yan,

    isa lang masasabi ko dito. 2 ps3's na ako kung talagang masisira or YLOD ps3 mangyayari talaga yan. isa pa yung kalaban mo diyan yung BD Lens failure yan ang common ng ps3 problem, kahit gaano ka pa kaalaga. kaya nga balik PC na ulit ako magastos ang console

    and mas maganda sa ps3 kung yung air na palabas kesa sa papasok kasi yung init niya sa loob kailangan lumabas

  • ok thanks jezz :)
  • Hi Guys!

    May question lang po ako tungkol sa PS3 Slim ko. It's currently having problems reading blu ray game discs. Kailangan ko painitin muna at i-tilt 45 degrees para makapagbasa siya ng discs. After 5-10minutes pwede ko na siya ilapag and it will read discs flawlessly.

    What do you think could be the problem? And the solution po?
