Flat-rate YLOD / Flashing Red Light Repairs include FREE Both-Way Shipping & More.
If your PlayStation 3 is turning itself off with three rapid beeps or you notice a yellow light right before a flashing red light when you try to turn it on, you've got what's known as the "Yellow light of death", "YLOD" or "Red light of death". This is often the result of detached solder spheres between the RSX GPU and motherboard inside your PS3, caused by the cumulative effect of extreme thermal cycles and dust build-up inside the console over the years. Our team at PS3RepairShop.com offers two "YLOD / Blinking Red Light" services to get your PS3 back up & running with all it's important data still intact. Watch this video to confirm your PS3's symptom then review the comparison table below for more details and pricing.

The ordering process is simple. After you've selected your Yellow Light Of Death repair service and completed checkout, we will email you a pre-paid FEDEX Ground Shipping Label (excluding AK & HI residents) and complete instructions to safely prepare your console for transit to our Service Facility. After your console arrives and is unboxed we will send you an Arrival Confirmation email which will state the estimated completion date of your repair. Upon completion of the repair we'll return your PS3 to you by FEDEX.
Please Note: These PS3 YLOD Repair Services are for original "fat" models only (CECHA01, CECHB01, CECHE01, CECHG01, CECHH01, CECHK01, CECHL01, CECHP01) -- they are not available for "slim" models (CECH2001, CECH2101, CECH2501, CECH3001 -- please check your unit's model number before ordering by referring to the white sticker on the rear of the console where the cables are attached). Previously tampered consoles: a "re-ball" will not miraculously repair a totally fried chip nor will it undo the warp damage to the motherboard caused by "heat-gun", "hairdryer" or other improper repair attempts. For best results, the GPU Re-ball procedure needs to be the first method attempted to reverse YLOD, not the last.

I HAVE A DISC STUCK INSIDE THE BLURAY DRIVE. WILL I GET IT
We guarantee any discs found inside your PlayStation 3 will be safely removed and returned after the repair. Begin your YLOD repair now.
WILL I LOSE ALL MY DATA SAVED ON THE HARD DRIVE?
You should not lose your data because this repair procedure does not relate to the hard drive. If we detect there is a problem with your data, we will get your approval before we take any action. The only instances where we've seen total data loss from a YLOD PS3 is when (1) there have been previous recovery attempts made such as connecting the PS3's hard drive to a computer in an effort to locate & retrieve the data, or (2) your PS3 is beyond repair / cannot be revived from the YLOD condition due to an outright motherboard failure. Begin your YLOD repair now.
HOW LONG IS THE PS3 YLOD REPAIR SERVICE WARRANTY?
For the Premium Service we will provide you with a Lifetime Labor Warranty as long as your PS3 has never been tampered / serviced or replaced since purchased brand new and still contains the original Sony warranty sticker. If the PS3 was ever sent back to Sony for repair or replacement, has been subjected to any type of DIY repair regardless of prior symptom, has a warranty sticker that was issued by another company, or has been tampered / totally removed, you will receive a 30-day labor warranty.
For the Standard Service you will receive a 30-Day Labor Warranty as long as no prior service or tampering has occurred on your PS3, otherwise you will receive zero warranty. Begin your YLOD repair now.
HOW MUCH IS MY REFUND IF MY PS3 CANNOT BE REPAIRED?
In some situations it may not be possible to revive your PS3 from this worst-case symptom. This most often occurs when the PS3 has been tampered or serviced before we received it or if there has been an outright chip failure on the motherboard. If your PS3 cannot be revived, we will return your console and issue a refund minus the non-refundable costs we incurred ($39.99). Alaska & Hawaii residents will be subject to an additional $35.00 shipping surcharge if the non-repairable unit is required to be returned.
Alternatively, you can apply the full amount you pre-paid for the repair towards the purchase of a brand new factory-sealed PlayStation 3 system, and the non-repairable unit will be safely discarded on your behalf. Upgraded hard drives and trapped discs that were inside the non-repairable console will be returned to you with the new PS3 system. Begin your YLOD repair now.
WILL I GET MY CONSOLE BACK OR WILL YOU SEND ME A REPLACEMENT / REFURBISHED UNIT?
You will absolutely get your own console back, not someone else's refurbished unit like you would with Sony or other repair shops. Begin your YLOD repair now.
IS THE PS3 YLOD PREMIUM REBALL SERVICE A PERMANENT FIX FOR MY "YLOD"?
There are no permanent fixes for YLOD because the PS3 motherboard will still contain vulnerable and already aged lead-free solder beneath the other chips & processors; only the GPU is being re-balled with lead-tin solder, not the entire motherboard. Having said that, the "Premium" GPU re-ball procedure provides a hands-down longer lasting fix over any other revival procedure. For maximum longevity the Premium (GPU re-ball) procedure should be purchased in combination with our EZ-Chill Active Cooling Upgrade Service (see side-bar on left for more details) which adds cooling protection for the entire motherboard (not just the GPU).
