    Wellllllll my ps3 finally obtained the dreaded yellow ring problem and now I'm wondering what the best online service would be to send in for repair. I've heard, for instance, that endlesselectronics is a good source. Thanks.

    I've fixed several YLOD (yellow light of death) as well as many XBOX 360 RROD and modded pretty much every system in the world.

    I'm not sure if you trust membership here (such as my number of posts and how many years I've been a user) but I'd be happy to do it for you.

    I live in Hanford (near Fresno), California.

    We could do it in trade if you don't have money.

    Otherwise, I can just tell you how do to it yourself if you're comfortable opening up your PS3. It's not that difficult actually.

    Yellow ring of death... where on the PS3 is a ring?

    Anyway, Devante, out of curiosity, which method do you use to fix YLoD? And how long does it last?

    Hey there.... the ring is the place where you put the games!! ;>

    Anyway I always use the heat gun method.
    PS3 = have never had one revert to YLOD yet.
    360 = Have done quite a few and have had 2 go back to RROD. One within 6 months, one after about a year.

    Sent you a message yesterday about the price and method details. Just wanted to make sure you received it.
