Help Please PS3 Slim Not Powering On Correctly
Help Please PS3 Slim Not Powering On Correctly –
Today I just got a bundle of multiple systems (xbox 360's, ps3's etc...) I have a reflow machine & I know how to fix YLOD's & RROD's and what not, but I have never came across a PS3 slim that didn't work, I only know how to fix fats. Anyway I plugged in the slim & without touching anything the system turned on but there were no led lights by the power button & then the fan started spinning real fast & loud & then a couple of seconds later the system just shut off (Nothing would happen when I pressed the power button or eject button). Before I start to take the slim apart I wanted to know from somebody with more experience on here, if this is a common issue with slims that don't work & does the slim just need a reflow or is it a more serious issue? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Update: I reflowed the slim & put on some new arctic 5. I then switched the PSU with another slim that I have that works, as well as the power button deck just in case there was something wrong with the power button. Unfortunately the ps3 still had the same problem. As soon as I plugged in the power cord, the fans came on & were spinning fast & were loud & then a few seconds later the ps3 just shut off. Again there was no red or white led lights around the power & eject buttons
i had that problem with a 160gb slim it was a mates and it had water spilt all over it when plugged in automatically turned on then the fan would start really fast and after about 2mins it would turn off an the only way to get it back on was to unplug it. what i did was leave it in a warm place with the lid off and after 4 days i connected it up and everything works perfect on it now even the bluray drive which i was suprised with as when we took the disc out it was soaking wet each time we tryed it maybe its not the same problem but a possibility maybe

Try replacing the little ribbon that connects from the mother board to the sliver touch bit. I do have a youtube video like this but i cant post links yet
OK, I'll give that a try. what's your youtube user name, so that I can try to find the video your referring to?
