I thought the YLOD could be fixed really easily….didnt know it was such a big deal. You guys got me paranoid about my launch system now :(

Its not that bad. Sony will fix it ,,I have heard bad things about anybody but them fixing a launch console.  The same thing happened to my launch 60,,when you send it to Sony (highly recommend) tape a note to the top of the machine with the game title and that it (the game)is inside thay will send it back with the console. I did for my launch 60 and it works now! My copy of the game was returned as well.

You could send it to, they repair ylod for $70, and they give your same console and any games in it back in under a week.

Just got hit with the YLOD hmm cry In the past couple weeks sometimes it would turn off and flash red. Tonight it happened a couple times so I took out the disc and good thing I did. Because I then tried to back up my hard drive and got the dreaded YLOD! So I'm thinking either go with gophermods or … I don't know maybe get a slim ….. I haven't backed up my saved in a long time :( Wish you could just pop your hard drive in another PS3 and go …

I got a 60 GB PS3 at launch, I had disc read issues with that but it happened in under a year, so Sony covered that and gave me a refurbished PS3 which is what I have now. Ran for 3+ years. I don't play PS2 games, but I love that the option is there when I need it. I really need all 4 usb slots. The memory card readers are very handy too…
