Fat ps3 no standby light,3beeps shutdown
Fat ps3 no standby light,3beeps shutdown –
hi i have a problem with my ps3 i'll give as much data as i can
it's a fat model : cechg12
when i plug it
turn the switch on the back to "I"
the standby red light is off
i click on the front I/O button, and it turns on,i hear the hard drive,the blue-ray drive and the fan starting to work, then everything shuts down after 3 beeps
I already changed the psu, no luck it's still not working.
any help is more than welcome
thanks in advance.
Probably YLOD. Just the lights are burnt out, and you can't see the green, yellow, then flashing red.
Honestly, the yellow light is kind of hard to catch, many people will just report the red light... Is the red light flashing until you turn the PS3 off or does it eventually "re-solidify"... Just wondering, it's almost-certainly solder-related YLOD. :/
..As you probably know, you can do an at-home reflow in about 2 hours, and it should last you a week to a couple of months if you use the right thermal paste and apply it properly... and the reflow was thorough and you used liquid flux... If you just want to back up your data and take the disk out (if any), just do a half-assed job, regardless it'll get YLOD again eventually.
