What Causes The Dreaded Yellow Light Of Death (YLOD)

EU reglations changed due to recycling issues "The posiblity of getting lead poisoning" and a couple of years ago there were some major headlines in the news regarding products coming from China containing LEAD. 

Every manufacturer Sony, Microsoft, etc have to use Unleaded solder during the manufacturing of their games console to stay compliant.

This was considered a more reliable solution for the electronics industry as unleaded solder has a higher melting point than Leaded Solder.

But this over time, Causes the Unleaded solder to crack, when this happens there is little or no contact between the mainboard and BGA solder balls Hence RROD (Red Ring Of Death).


All consoles (since 2005) have been made with the “lead-free” solder

which we now know has a short lifespan and is not reliable like the lead solder!


The solution

We preheat the main board and reflow the Graphics processor.

We use the latest Achi SC IR Pro Computer Controlled Dark Infrared BGA reflow station to carry out this process.
