It shows you how to fix YLOD too, but i had it just to show you how to take the ps3 apart.

Inside you will obviously see the entire disc drive, on it is more screws and what not. Self explanatory to unscrew that and take it apart and take your disc out, then put it back together. There is a trick to taking the warrenty sticker off without it saying you did, but i cant find that video.

You should probably have someone help you if you do it though, can be tricky to put it back together. And if you do get another ps3, try to use your current hard drive. I took my hard drive out, put in a new one, and put the old one back in and it didnt reformat it.
