I was under the impression (per a google search, and what I'd heard) that only the 60GB were backwards compatible, and since I have no PS2 games, I thought that maybe I'd take advantage of any moderate level of demand there may be and get a new system with zero hours.
I had my YLOD error fixed by a guy outside of Keller that had a professional board to heat up the solder & flux and do a proper repair. Charged me $45.
I guess it's caused by dust building up on the heat sincs (or something like that), and while I'm rarely here, my house does seem to be particularily dusty. I'll change my HVAC filter more often, but there's probably not much more that I can do....short of buying a new PS3 or repairing it every so often.
Thanks for the input guys.
