Playstation 3 CECHA01 Help
I'm new here to the forums. I'm not sure if this is the right forum to be posting this in so if it isn't please feel free to move it to the appropriate forum.
Anyways, I started doing repairs on Playstation 3's about a year or so ago. However, I got very busy with a new job and school and have fallen behind a bit. I primarily only fix YLOD systems. I don't use a heat gun. I have a Reflow/Reball station. However, while I have the equipment needed for Reballing (Stencils, balls, solder, etc, etc), I don't quite have the skills to do it yet just simply been doing Reflows.
Anyways, I've got a Playstation 3 CECHA01 a friend just gave to me. Although, it isn't a YLOD situation. When the back switch is on and the red stand-by light comes on. When I go to turn it on, the green light comes on, than immediately turns off again to red. The fan doesn't turn on at all either. No blinking red light or anything.
I was wondering, from some of you experts out there, what this might indicate? Is it a power supply problem? Hard Drive problem? Hardware problem? Broken fan?
I'd at least like to attempt to fix it since it is a Backwards Compatible unit. The warranty seal is already been removed. My friend bought it, off Craigslist, probably seller refurbished or something not entirely sure but he just told me that is how he got it.
If I can't get it fixed, I'll probably just eBay it and someone can use it for parts or someone with more skill and time could fix it.
I'd really appreciate any help or advice someone could give me on the possible problems. I haven't taken it apart yet myself, just thought I'd see if anyone had any guesses what the problem could be?
Thanks so much.
