RLOD on PS3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My 60Gig PS2 compatible PS3 cut off the other day after about 20 minutes on Black Ops. When I turn it on now, it just beeps and flashes the red light. I looked through the forum here and saw a lot of YLOD but nothing for RLOD, any help is appreciated.

RLoD = YLoD. Just a different sound/light code. Just treat it as a YLoD and you will be fine (e.g. oven trick, just do it, or send it to me, I'll do it for you).

My younger brother bricked the PS3 with the RLOD playing Wipeout HD. We searched and found the Heatgun Process....same as oven really.

Got me to thinking. Both mine and my brothers Nvidia GPU Macbook Pro's had the same problem with the video failing. Everyone at Apple sites said it was the mainboard fried etc...and we were out of warranty.

I'll be damned that using the "heatgun process" (waving the $24 home Depot heatgun) at the motherboard / processors for approx 5 minutes fixed all 3 machines.

PS3

17" Macbook Pro

All back to like with new TIM grease and like new. Saved thousands of dollars in replacement costs.
