Have the infamous Yellow Light of Death or YLOD? No problem. We are experts at fixing the Yellow Light of Death!
The vast majority of the time, the yellow light of death is caused by the fracturing of the solder under the RSX chip. This chip has hundreds of tiny ball solder connections that over time can fracture and disconnect the RSX chip from your motherboard. If this has happened to your system, Fix My Playstation will professionally rework the solder under your RSX chip. This is a very difficult repair to do correctly and requires a very experienced and skilled technician with professional grade equipment.
Heat guns and inexperienced technicians can do fatal damage your system. Send it in for a professional repair! At Fix My Playstation we can fix your YLOD right and get you a repair that is going to last. With our professional BGA rework equipment and experience we will fix your Yellow Light of Death and help make your system more resistant to the failure in the future.
There are two repair methods for repairing the YLOD that can be preformed. Either are included in your PS3 repair service. If you do not request a certain service our technicians will decide which repair best fits the condition of your board.
1. Reflow | This is where the fractures in the solder are healed over.
2. Reball | This is where the solder is replaced.
