Today is a good day for most ps3 owners today the mighty have fallen. No longer shall people be made victums of my acts of tranny on psn. Today my best friend is gone farewell ps3 you fought a long battle live a harsh life. Played daily for hours on end and sometimes played for days. Today i salute you for 2 years of your service to this country we call the internet. Rip my Black Behemoth we shall cross paths again through greener $$$ pastures. You will be reborn oh the good times we've had...

Mine died today as well, most likely from YLOD. How do you know for sure if it's the YLOD though? I've tried starting it up 20 or so times since it happend (about an hour ago) and twice it's made it to the XMB before freezing and shutting off. If it were the YLOD, would it not make it to the XMB at all? Confused!

I'm no expert but I replaced the thermal paste (not CPR, TPR ;)) on my forty gig yesterday. The stuff that was on was all dry and crappy and there was at least one discoloured hotspot.

It had been coming on in VTOL mode a lot. Now it's back to purring softly like a kitten.

It's not difficult and I like to think that most of these failures are down to overheating from the crappy old thermal paste.

Sad to hear, they're still dying.

Phil_75 had his 3rd die on him, so don't despair, there's always someone worse off.

well i did get 2 yrs of heavy play out of it i have 3 brothers and there probably wasnt a time when the ps3 wasnt on other than when everyone was sleep. When im at work someones on it when im at home im on it it was in heavy rotation but ultimately i think dust killed it. I have the money for a new one but ill put it on hold i dont want my gf putting her foot where the sun dont shine.
