YLOD - Reflow - Loose ribbon - blu-ray won't take disc!
I've repaired a few ps3's lately, and i went to fix my brothers since he has the YLOD
I took her apart and first noticed the ribbon connection clamp on the mobo is not there, since when i lifted the blu-ray player and the ribbon was already out.
I further took it apart removed the stock compound, re-flowed both chips, and applied a dab of AS5 on the GPU and CPU
I put it back together having to wedge a couple pieces off a business card to keep the ribbon intact to the mobo from the blu-ray player.
I went to turn it on and still got the YLOD. Goes from green-blue-yellow-red 2 beeps
I tried to insert a disc and it wouldn't take it. Could it be the power supply?
