Alrighty. I Dont have a heatgun, but can I use my woman's expensive hair dryer instead?

For people who have done this.. can you give me step by step instructions n how to do this?

I saw a few youtube videos, but I would rather get the info from you guys then some 13 year old kid who uploaded a video.

Thanks in advance.

All I can say is get a heat gun or borrow one or use your oven. They say you can do a towel trick but i dont recommend that at all.

The best way is with a heat gun period. Baking it in your oven can cause your Caps to swell & maybe blow I havent seen it happen yet but investing in a heat gun is your best bet

Yes. Put Linux on it. Have Sony PermaBan and possibly sue you for everything you own because of some artifacting.

My recommendation would be to remove some of the body panels and see if thats the problem. If its not heat it might be better to just buy a new one as anything else you do can get pretty sketchy and its out of warranty anyway.

DO NOT USE THE TOWEL TRICK! this is a noob's temporary fix. To all those suggesting this, you should know better.

The towel trick is extremely risky, and is a huge gamble. What you are doing is blocking off the ventelation to heat up the ps3 - so hot in fact, that the solder melts. At this heat, you can do permanent damage to the other components - let alone the fact that all that heat in such a small space will probably cut the life of your ps3 dramatically.

This is a very temporary fix. Baking it in the oven is a more controlled method - but the best method is heat gun - reflow/reflux fix. This is a controlled - and you can get long lasting results.

Apart from this, get yourself an intercooler (nyko if you can find it - but hard to find the PHAT version nowadays) - even if it is some cheap - thing. They drop temps around 5 degrees, and everything helps atm. Next up, you can do the fan-mod - which will definately make your ps3 last longer.

Final option is to sell it - and the refurb 120g slim for $180@cowboom
Only problem is, these seem to die after a few months too. The most likely case is that sony can't fix ps3's for crap. So I would suggest, replacing the thermal compound in these as well as performing a reflow/w reflux. On top of adding a nyko intercooler.

These are your options. Do not listen to those saying towel trick. They have no idea what they are talking about.

Ok folks. Thanks for all the information as its very helpful.
I have replaced the thermal compound last night with arctic silver, and it has made a dramatic change for the better... however I have decided to do the oven thing. My wife is in the living room and will be witnessing this...She will laugh. That aside.. Can someone who has experience in baking your ps3 in the oven give me step by step instructions?

What will I need to take out of the device? Blueray drive? HDD?

Again thanks everyone...Since the initial post of this thread, my ps3 has improved.

You will need to remove everything - you will only be baking your motherboad - make sure the battery comes at as well (you might want to replace this as well, it can be the culprit sometimes).

And buy a cheap bottle of reflux (no clean) - and just put a nice dose on the chips (after preheating)

According to another poster who fixed his PS3 using the oven trick, you bake the mobo for 10 mins at 400F.
