ps3 freezing and problem starting up
Hai guys, I have a defective ps3, i hope you guys can help me with it :).
It is a 40gb CECHH model with 3.55. When i first turned it on it ran for a few minute a then froze while playing movie, i turned it off but when i turned it on back again there was no signal going through hdmi and no hdd activity and also when i wanted to turn it off i have to press the on/off button longer than usual. I have to leave it off for at least 10 minutes before i can start the ps3 again. I decided to disassemble it changed thermal paste, remove dust etc and put it up again. I then played movie, it ran for a good 30 minutes. I thought it was already fixed. I turned it off and make it stand on it sides turned on back again. But this time it froze after just loaded the movie and the problems with starting up also came back. Also it has higher chance of turning on when after turned off using the switch compare using the on/off soft button.
I have tried to restore it to default but the problems still there. I am thinking the problem is with bad solder. Luckily my friend has a heat gun. But it could be also be of other problems. If you guys know anything please share it here :)
