Help - Black Screen On Everything In XMB Games
Help - Black Screen On Everything In XMB Games –
Right where do i start lol ? I just dug out an old PS3 i had lying around that had a knackered BD and YLOD. Was trying to reseat a laptop GPU with a heat gun and though id give the PS3 a go as well. Anyway played around with the heat gun on it and suprisingly it came back to life. To cut a long story short i set it up and install 3.55 Kmeaw and all went fine. I tested it for around 3 hours playing a movie off flash drive and tinkered with the settings. All went fine no probs. So then i came to installing multiman and a few PKGs i had backed up.
My problem is now that everything i run under the xmb games returns a black screen hang, cant exit to xmb and have no option but to power off. I have looked into this and found lv2patcher, fix permissions etc... but even these return a black screen, even multiman does. My question is am i overlooking something or does it sound like i done some damage with the heat gun that cant be fixed. I am not skilled enough to understand if the games side of things uses a different chip on the motherboard, and i must admit a few of the black chips did melt a slight bit lol which i was worried about, but hey its been lying here for over 2 years so not a great loss if i have. But thinking about if that was the case would the whole unit not be stable, ie the videos, internet boots up (obviously no connection) and everything else seems fine.
So if anyone can help id be most grateful. Am i running into a known problem or does it sound more serious ? I just cant understand where to go next as everything returns a black screen no matter what i try :-(
PS.. just worth saying as im trawling through a lot of threads on here as we speak... i took out the BD drive AFTER installing 3.55 Kmeaw as it was knackered and made a lot of noise, if thats worth noting ;-)

OK seems to be a knackered logic board after much reading... sounds like the unit is ferked !
PS im trying to find the logic board and cant seem to locate it. All videos show it underneath the BD drive... yet my BD drive has no board underneath ?? Eh !
without BD units do not make any games, you find BDEMU 2, 3:55 pkg
look on ebay for a "ps3 blu ray board".... the next question is what model ps3 you got? if you get one just be sure it is the corresponding one for your bd drive. when you order one, you will need to marry it to the motherboard. which is a simple process.
Noobzilla the whole BD drive is ferked, so i take it its worth just buying a whole new drive and this can still be married ?
