Some help please(USB not working)
Some help please(USB not working) –
Something weird happen to me yesterday. I realize the 4 USB ports of my old and fateful ps3 are not working. I try to connect the sixaxis or any usb device that a few days ago were working just fine but now are not. like there is no connection between the ports and the motherboard. Maybe something just shit on me but its very weird because i have taken care of the ps3 for long time now and everything is just fine except the USBs. Anyone have and idea of whats going on here and how can i fix this to continue jailbreaking??Can i jailbreak from the SD port with a converter or something (this model have the other card slots).
Thx buddies and hope anyone could help me.-
I don't know how electrically inclined you are, but you can always take off the cover of your PS3 and make sure any of the USB wires didn't get cold soldered, or just come off and fix it with a soldering iron. USB always uses the same compliant wiring schematic too. You can get a multi-meter and verify all the voltages of all the wires going to the ports. If you don't think you can handle any of this, find your nearest electrician/computer expert and have them test it.
I think a can handle this man. but there is no wires around the USBs. They are soldered to the mainboard. Do you think this can be a cold solder? I just need to get a nice soldering kit too
i thought it could be a resistor or something that just shit on me.but and gonna try the voltage thing that you are mentioning. I have a Multimeter right on hand. just checking for electric continuity??
edit. It seems they are well soldered And all 4 are failing so something in the mainboard must to be the reason. Could be the microcontroller failing? lost of his drivers of something? Wierd because i have 3 years with this shit working very good...
