Q - PS3 160G slim (no sound & audio) green light
I have search on this forum and I found some relative question but don't have clear answers,. Pls forgive me for posting this again, but I really need answer and clarifications on my mind..
My ps3 is 160g slim, I recently downgrade it and install cfw Rogero 4.46 on a service for $40, after that I install games and I think approximately 24hours the ps3 won't show display and sound and controller is not sync and hdd one blink of light, I try changing av/hdmi still no display and sound, I tried also reset the display on ps3, still not working..
I read that power cycle will do the trick, and I tried it. Turning it on and off for 24hrs, for 1hr turn on and 15mins off.
And It has big improvement, display and sound is now working.. After this I tried using it, after a few mins the display flicks with dots/color distort and freezes up., and it always like that., cant use ps3..
I go to the shop to get check my ps3, they said its has a problem on the GPU.. It will cost me $80
I have research this:
Can reflow really fix the prob?
How will it last after reflowing?
They told me reflow is not that good and the problem will comeback..
Is this true??
Can reball can fix the prob?
How will it last after reballing?
I really don't have an idea what are they, I'm confused and please help me understand this!
Btw. The technicians recommends that I need to change my GPU!
I know changing it to new GPU, will really fix the problem.
But how it will last? Anyone tried this?
Does my GPU really not be useable? It still working but with slight problem, maybe It can be still fix.,
NOTE: PS3 is one year old, and the problem shows after downgrade from OFW 3.70 and install CFW rogero 4.46 (progskeet)
Thanks for understanding..
