Ps3 Problem After YLOD Repair
Strange one, connecting and disconecting the blu ray ribbon whilst on standy will boot up ps3, i know you said the connections are good, but might be worth double checking the bd ribbon,
good luck with it and let us know if you sus it out.
Hey shaky, thanks for your advice, I will look over it again tomorrow and let you know how it fares out.
Nothing happening Shaky, i did another reflow, made sure all cables and ribbons were properly secured and the same problem persists
A mobo should only be reflowed a max of 3 times before being reballed. Also, if you slightly bumped it while reflowing it, it could have bridged some solder balls under the component being reflowed. You also could have overheated the RAM or Caps, and caused additional problems. I would have a professional reball done on it, and have the ram and caps checked.
Hey blazie, so for a better word its ****ed?
I have done a couple of reflows before, not just on this one but on a friends one too. I havent moved it untill I gave it 20 mins to cool down.
Is there anything I can try for it?
Well, it's still worth repairing. A reball is pretty much the best fix you can do to a PS3, as long as it's reballed with lead-based solder, which means it will probably never have another problem. For now, I'd say check all the caps and look for signs that they're bad (bubbled up and expanded, leaking fluid, etc). Also, make sure that the tops of the ram chips and other plastics haven't bubbled up from the uneven heat from a heatgun, and also check for signs of board delamination. Reference photos can easily be found on google. If you don't see anything obvious, look for a professional repair shop that can reball the components. Depending on where you live, I might be the place you want to send it to, I own a professional electronics repair shop.
