    Sydney, Australia members, where did you get your YLOD fixed?

    Due to a very bad customer service experience, I am in need of a new repairer for my ps3 YLOD.

    If anyone could recommend me someone around the western Sydney area, I'd very much appreciate it

    (As a side note, I already have a new slim ps3. The one im looking to repair is one I use as a secondary console for friends to game online together).

    Thanks for reading.

    Sony is the last person anyone should send there PS3 to ironically. Ha, fair enough, how many ps3's do you have now if you keep buying new ones?

    How far west are we talking?
    Google Beetronix, they pick up dead consoles Sydney Metro area. and then repair.
    If they can't fix it, they send it back to you without charge.

    Not sure on if it's ok to post link at the forum, otherwise I would have.

    I have a FAT 60gb BC model that had the RLOD about 18 months ago, it got sent back to Sony for repair.
    They fixed it sort of, the fan cuts in at top speed after 2 minutes and is so loud you can't hear dialouge in a movie or game, then after 15 minutes or a ambient temp of 22c it will give a overheating warning.
    So for all intended purposes the console is useless, so I packed it away and bought a slim
