    Try this FAQ.
    If that doesn't work, check if you're still covered under warranty.

    My 80 GB Motorstorm edition got the YLOD a couple months ago.

    I followed this guide by Gliksy. Make sure you use the flux as every post I read where people did not use it, the fix didn't last.

    Anyway followed the guide /w flux and my PS3 has been working fine since. Granted I don't use it all the much, as it's in the bedroom mostly used a media centre now. Not that I don't expect the fix to last, just that I went and bought a slim before I found out I could fix it myself.
