YLOD Victim


Not a good day. Definitely not. See that picture above? We're certified victims. Jerry was playing GTA when the PS3 died on him. Now it won't turn on and all we're getting is the blinking Yellow Light of Death and the perpetual blinking red light.

We scoured the Internet for fixes but the only thing we found is to send it in to Sony and they will refurbish the machine if possible. Of course, since it's a couple of months past the warranty, we have to pay for it.

The problem is that Sony Philippines doesn't fix PS3s - I just called. Two options left:
  • Buy a new PS3
  • Try Datablitz (where we bought the unit) and see if they can fix it
Fun, fun, fun. Mercury, I hate you to the MAX!!! Needless to say, I am not buying a phone tomorrow. I want to so bad though. Then again, maybe I will, just to piss Mercury off.

[UPDATE] It's now just REALLY sinking in. I saw the Aerosmith guitar controller and I wanted to play GH. Oh wait, I forgot, the PS3 is dead. We called Datablitz and yeah, they'll diagnose it but if they need replacement parts, they can't do anything about it. Crap, crap, crap. Useless piece of expensive crap.

  2. Jer, so am I. Let's see what we can do, though.

    Lunaticg, thanks! we're hoping we can find someone to fix it. It will be sorely missed because, yes, we do use it a LOT.
