I was wondering if anyone could help me. I got the YLOD on my 60gb launch a month ago. I searched all over the place for a fix. I found the hairdryer fix. I know this is only temporary, and the YLOD will come back, but can anyone give me steps on doing this correctly.
You see, I've done it a few times. I've blown a hairdryer through the rear vents in my ps3. I did it for around 15 mins, and let it cool for a while. But, whenever I turn it on, i still get the yellow light. Sometimes, after I have blown it with the hairdryer, a red light comes on and flashes while beeps. This is only when it is still hot, though. 2 days ago, I used the hairdryer for around 15 mins. Put in it the fridge for 10, and let it cool in my room a while. It came on, but couldn't start as the correct hard disk couldn't be found meaning i forgot to put the hard drive in. I turned it off, put the HD in turned it on again, but all I got was the YLOD again haha.
So can anybody help me out? I have tryed it with the sweater/towel, put it in the fridge, etc. But it still will not work again. I don't know how exactly I got it on.
Let the others come after us. We welcome the chase

No, it can't be the hard drive, I have tryed it with my orig. 60gb, and still doesn't turn on, so still YLOD.
