Bring out your Dead!

Mass Game Console Repair/Reflow event

Hive13 recently grabbed a PS3 YLOD (Yellow Light of Death) Repair kit from ifixit.com and went to work on 3 broken PS3s.  The teardown was a lot of fun and we were greatly excited when we were able to recover all three PlayStations!  After some G+ postings we realized the need to do this kind of event for Xbox users and any PlayStation 3 Owners out there that have YLOD.  So we will be hosting a FREE event on December 11th from Noon – 3pm.  The kits to fix these units are fairly cheap but you may want to consider contributing $5 for supplies.  Food is not provided so consider bringing a snack.

If you are interesting in attending please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ah2z1tTz_EqndFBNd21jS055LWFGTDNqR1c4d1doNUE

If you had a console die on you and you have already replaced it.  Please consider bringing in the console to fix or just donating it that day.  We will take any unwanted repaired game consoles and donate them for kids for Christmas this year.  If you just want to drop off a broken system please fill out the form just so we know how many supplies to purchase.

Event: Sun Dec 11th 12-3pm

Cost: FREE

Try to show up as close to Noon as possible.  It can take a long time to dissemble and reassemble these units.
