This is one of the first generation ps3 releases. It had a rented blue ray in the player when the yellow light struck. I had to fix it to return the disk and retain all my save data.
The repair went pretty well. The images from the guide were not what I encountered when I opened it up. I blame that on the fact that it is such an old version. The only issue I had was that I forgot to plug the fan back in before I reassembled the playstation. I remembered it as soon as everything was put back together so I was lucky enough to dissassemble the entire thing again. Oops.
This process is not as complicated as it may come off. Anyone should be able to complete it without any issues.
