Worked like a charm, and I was able to transfer everything to a new Slim. More topics from this board Buy any type of thermal paste. Sony Electronics Sony Mobile. Sony can take the slims and the super slims and shove them up their asses. It played up a few times last week before i put my new HDD at the weekend by turning off and giving the signs that it was overheating, even tho it always run cool and never revved up I always had the thought of it lasting a little longer tho with it being the 40GB model prone to BD failures so i was half expecting that to be what it would fail.

So i have decided to repair it myself following Gilksy’s videos on you tube. Mr Einds Mr Einds 6 years ago 5 I second the gophermods recommendation. So my 40GB YLoD on Sunday after about 440gb months of service which i was expecting a little bit longer out of it but there you go: PS3 freezing on system restore, need help.

40GB YLoD self fix queries.

It needs to be fellowed and new thermal paste. Get it fixed by Sony, and when they try to offer you switching to a slim 40gv.


I say any type of thermal paste because you only need a temorary fix, so top of the line or bottom of the barrel won’t make a damn bit of difference. They fixed it, it cost me more than it would have to switch to a slim, but I got the better deal. If you’re only familiar with Fahrenheit measurements then look for a heat gun that gets as hot as degrees Fahrenheit but can also be adjusted as low as degrees Fahrenheit.

Don’t worry about it dwad: Don’t have an account? No point it starting threads saying ”new HDD broke my console” or ”I’m taking Sony to court” XD I’m still a loyal fan and plan on being back up this weekend: Also, this is the best time for hilksy to get a new system with the lower priced bundles and a huge amount of space.

Take that into consideration when deciding if you want to fix your system. Are anymore PS3 games going to be released?

We are all wishing her a speedy recovery: I’ve always looked after it and cleaned it regularly, but once that dust is inside golksy not coming out unless you take it completely apart.

Cool i guess the heating up part is a fail safe and as you can see i know absolutely nothing about this sort of gilkay. Total class, all the way.

Anyhow my little chips looked instact and fine as well. Email me when someone replies. One thing i cant understand is the heating of the board and those 4 little chips next to the 2 larger ones as they look fine and are well soldered on still.


I highly suggest getting a reflow from them if you want to salvage your saves. If you want a long-term repair with a lifetime warranty then look into rsolpc. If your out of warranty take it apart one Sunday and give it some TLC i cannot hurt and was quite fun taking it apart seeing what was what: Keep me logged in on this device Forgot your username or password?

The Motherboard was just as bad with almost mold like looking lumps of dust stuck to all the main chips and processors i had to take it outside and gently blow it all off and then some of it would not move i had to use a soft brush being very gentle.

When I repaired my 60gb my one did not have them little pads on as well. PS3 Games are in the Holiday Sale. I’d suggest upgrading to a newer model PS3 while you’re at it, and restoring your data onto that.
