    err, so you were inside the ps3 yet you didnt even try to fix it

    All you needed to do was to carefully disassemble the ps3, then clean (with isopropanol) , and heat (with a heatgun set at 350 degrees) the heat sync plates in the core of the system to reflow the cracked 'Ylod causing' solder. This is an extremely well known fix.

    Heatgun = £5-10 , Isopropanol = £2, Heatsync Paste = £3
    Total = £10-£15.
    YLOD Gone. Ps3 fixed. £265 saved.

    But you decided to 'demolish the thing' just to get your stupid disk back?

    There are lots of shops that repair YLOD. You send it to them by Royal Mail, they send it back in 3 days at a cost of like 30-40quid. There are lots of shops offering this service; managed to get my YLOD fixed this way.
