Getting your repair started is simple: After you've decided which service you prefer and complete checkout, be on the lookout for your pre-paid shipping label email from UPS. We will also separately email you complete instructions to safely prepare your console for transit to our Service Facility. After the repair has been completed we'll ship your PlayStation 3 back to you by UPS. There are no hidden charges -- the price you see here is the only price you pay. It's that easy!

Please Note: The PS3 YLOD Repair Services are for original "fat" models only (CECHA01, CECHB01, CECHE01, CECHG01, CECHH01, CECHK01, CECHL01, CECHP01) -- they are not available for "slim" models (CECH2001, CECH2101, CECH2501, CECH3001 -- please check your device's model number before ordering by referring to the white sticker on the rear of the console where the cables are attached). Similarly, the services should not be ordered if your PS3 is currently fully functional; these should not be considered "preventative" YLOD services.
