Did this video help you?

UltraNSC: OMG are u kidding??? this is not the Sensor, you have this Problem because your Thermal Compound INSIDE the IHS is old and bad. Cut the IHS and apply new Thermal paste and have fun !!! More on my Channel !!! /: GUYS DONT freakING DO THIS :\ and if you do this, use Flux and a Heat Gun >WTF< and apply NEW THERMAL PASTE !!! 

deth502: guys, y all the hate? all the negative comments about not enough heat to melt the solder, wrong flux, carpet static, not cleaning the old paste, ect. those are all moot points. its still not going to work for crap because he never plugged the fan back in. 

Drac Sawyer: first off never ever ever ever move the motherboard after heating it like that least let ti cool off for about 30 minutes to an hour before applying thermal paste to it you cold of slid the entire cpu off the contacts

Teknogod17: omg is that a hair dryer. just freaking Christ people.

videogamegeek RAYGAH: question. what wattage hair dryer is safe?

Fake Cake: Sir, my hats off to you for reaching new a whole new level of stupidity for a very very amateurish attempt at fixing electronics. If you had an idea of what you're doing you wouldn't disassemble a goddamned piece of electronic device on a carpet! Because even if you have an anti-static case place under the PS3 the static can be transmitted through your body which can result in frying the motherboard! I'm wondering how many circuit boards have died because of your stupid decisions? EDIT: Did you just forgot to wipe off the old paste? What an idiot!

Xboxflash.ru: Еще одни горе Мастер, нет денег на ремонт выкинь приставку, приставка дорогое удовольствие и нужно платить .

xModzGalore: Hey asshole No wattage hair dryer is safe pay a freakin pro like me to do a reflow/Reball some people like me do them cheap save the 20 dollars on you're crapty heatgun and pay it to me idiots 

varietychannelalex: @Paul Short just long enough to melt the flux. You have to let it sink under the chips.

ROOKTABULA: You REALLY should clean the heatsink and chip surfaces so they're bare before applying new paste: That's just asking for issues/headaches down the road by applying new paste to old dry paste.

XLPCX: Hey man. My PS3 just started with the blinking red light right after it turns on from green. I was going to ask what type of flux you used and then what the other stuff you put on it after that? Thanks

z HAZE: facepalm... reball ur BGA

SubaruXT6: didnt remove the old heat sink compound but you added new. :/ before reassemble you waited for it to cool down right ? it works though !

p1on33r: 2 things about this that are bothering me. 1. As marley gibson said ... heat doesnt remove thermal compound. You should have removed it and reapplied new one before putting the PS3 back together. 2. These plates that youre surrounding with flux ... they are just plates held by silicone. in a different video .. the guy cuts them off and then applies whatever is needed for the PS3 to work. But im happy it worked for you the way you did it. Im just saying there is a better way. 

TOGALGaming: By the time you take it apart, it would have already cooled down.

Mars Flee: So, leaving the flux at the solder joints means you're expecting the chips themselves to overheat and work with the flux to reball the chips? Very interesting.

Alejandro Vargas: I can confirm: (60Gb PS3) same problem (in summer, overheating after a few seconcs, at winter it worked OK but with fan at full speed), same solution (but I didn't use flux because I hadn't) I thought (like marley gibson) the problem should be the thermal paste, but I changed it and didn't work. The only I didn't try is to do the "homemade reballing"... and it worked.

Wilcows: Thanks for your credit card information.

John Paul Gabriel Zuluaga: This was actually shot camera wise perfectly a+! Method of reflow is well not perfect 

Jay W.: you did this with a normal hair dryer. normally that won't help much, rather take a heating gun. and it is a good idea to get rid of the terhmal paste befor you do a reflow. flux was a very good idea!

SkylineGTR1985: This IS NOT HOW TO FIX ANYTHING. For all of you that "think" you can fix "ANY" motherboard with a hairdryer or a heatgun you will just flex the motherboard enough to make a connection "if that" call a professional and get a legitimate repair. You will waste your time and quite possibly do more damage then repair in the end. ; ) Your ps3 "thinks it's overheating" because the thermal paste either on top or internally beneath the Integrated heat sink is shot. Check my channel to see a Real Ps3 Re-ball Repair. Thanks for sharing though.

Lachlan Hunter: in other words if this happens to you then make a detoure to your nearest hardware store buy a sledgehammer and knock that bitch up then order a pc of ncix or origin and be happy that this wont be a problem ever again

South336Victor: Why are you sitting on the carpet?

Daneuri Acevedo: People before you to do anything to your PS3, take the hard drive out and clean it with compress air and inside the hard drive apartment. I'm not guaranteeing you that it will fix the problem, but it did for me! :)

jon sheppard: i did this and it broke myxbox!

RandomHeroGames: Anybody wanting to try this method, do not follow this video. Everything is done improperly and in the matter of maybe 1 month it will go south again. If done correct this method could last you a maximum of 6 months.

Eric Sutton: noooo you didnt clean and put fresh paste on :( no wonder its over heating.

reneb82: problem fixed THX!!!!!!!

1969RSCamaro: This is rubbish.

Chris Curtis: Takes about 5-10 min with heating/hair gun

Sgtblack: A lot of things done wrong here... A hair drier dos not really get hot enough to melt the solder, you should not be doing this reflow on carpet because of static ruining the board, also you need to wipe ALL the old thermal paste off the chips.

huzaifi hashim: dude you think ps3 is human......weird

Marko Metalhair Mikkola: lol my ps3 is almost 6 years old! and that happened to it. now im tryin' to fix it and i hope it will be succeed

boosta333agag: Whats the name of that putty you put on the motherboard part

marley gibson: you do realise heat does not remove thermal compound 

Marcel Woode: k i feel like a pro lol

Stig Brännlund: So many errors, this sure is a hobbyist solution :P. Bad method of applying AS5 (according to themselves - you should only have a thin line applied...) - Also MX-4 is better since it doesnt need any curing and its also NOT electrically conductive, Flux (which are really actually only used to "eat" oxygen when soldering) needs higher temperature to melt properly then what a hairdryer can provide :P, also some kinds of Flux are corrosive and will damage the connections overtime!. Also! dont use flux on top of the chip like i saw in the movie :P Working on a rug?! omg you will get ESD problems and lint into the paste. If this seems to work its probably just because the Flux is spreading heat away from the chip onto the PCB and probably lowers the temperature reading due to the temperature spread. When the flux hardens/evaporates when the chip goes hot again (and by age) i can bet the issue comes back again.

diditron1: my ps3 has ylod but it runs for 1 min before the ylod occurs and I had finished reflowing why is this happening I know it isn't overheating cause the ps3 is still cold plzz help 

Eric Unbekannt: Great job. Such folks we need more of.

Robert O'Byrne: Is that your Dad's bank card? tut tut!

EPiCxPS3: That flux isnt liquid. even if you melt it down it wont clean&reball the metal balls underneath it, plus you didn't even cleaned the old thermal paste, i wouldnt suggest people to follow this tut.

lukesheridan1992: you do know if you just slapped the console about 10 times it would have knocked the "sensor" and unstick.

Derek Donnelly: Will def overheat I didn't see you connect the fan to the motherboard again lol

qban12allods: Just go to laptop service. They will repair it and you pay about 20-30 pounds and you get gw. Cheers!

tomaszbunio: Świetna robota. Życzę tej konsoli długiego życia hehehe

Oscar Tejeda: Worse part is that my gta5 is in it 

David Barselow: Is it still working 12/21/2013

Big Si: Im no expert but as i do this for a living and fix at least 5 YLOD/Red light PS3 per week in my computer repair shop i thought id throw a bit advice for anyone thinking for attempting this... 1. REMOVE THE MOTHERBOARD BATTERY! iv had a few blow up in my face when heating the board! 2.USE A HEAT GUN. Hair dryers get nowhere near hot enough to reflow solder. 3. USE LIQUID FLUX. This will get behind the chips & help get a neat reflow that will last. 4. USE ARCTIC SILVER 5 THERMAL COMPOUND. No other thermal paste comes close, believe me iv tried them all!! put a thin layer on each chip making sure theyre properly covered. THEN put a 2nd layer over that! Some people say less is more, RUBBISH, I have to give 90 days warranty with my work and the ones i have done with a single thin layer of arctic silver 5 only last a couple of weeks then comes back, where as the ones i use 2 coats on never come back! 5. BONDING TIME! Thermal compound needs to heat and cool various times before it creates a good seal, Play the console short amounts for the first 5-10 times after doing this repair to allow the paste to heat and cool and create a good seal! If you hammer the machine as soon as you do this repair the paste will simply burn and melt off and YLOD will re-occur. As i say im no expert but i do own a computer repair shop and this is what works for me! 

Oscar Tejeda: Damn ps3, only lasted me 8 years!!
