Is my E3 Flasher dead?
Been installing a E3 flasher into a PS3 fat. When turning the PS3 on the lights on the E3 Fasher is not lighting up at all!
I don't know what i'm doing worng and right now it feel's like i have gone and killed it my E3 flasher as when pluging in the USB cable what came with it, I did not know it was a ESATA part at the time so i try pluging the USB cable what came and at frist it looked like the part is damage and was not fitting so i had ago fixing the part and got the USB plug to fit but then coming to look in the box for the power plug for the dock i see the ESAT cable so then i looked on line and can see that it is a ESATA part not a USB part.
So i was kicking my self very bad!!!
Lucky the data on the dock is reading when i use the ESATA cable in the part.
But i'm not getting any lights on the E3 flasher at all :(
I been having a lot of bad luck and right now i can't get it to work.. Is it dead?
Is the E3 flasher getting the power from the CHIP or SATA part? :cry:
Does your fat PS3 have NOR firmware chips? I believe the E3 flasher only works with NOR.
The E3 gets power from the NOR chip. I must have reattached the clip 50 times before I could get it to fully work.
Hey thanks for the replys.
I have got E3 flasher working now by opening the PS3 up and push the clip back down as it as come off. So i fixed that and the lights is showing up fine.
The problem i'm having now is, I'm trying to fix a PS3 that will not let me install any PS3 updates. It will ask for a update on a pendrive then error out all the time when checking. So i have tryed to fix it before and got this red screen popping up when i tryed to do something by some help on a forum.
If i remember right i was trying to downgrade or something that made this red screen pop up all the time with japan words. If anyone as seen it?
I have had ago at everything to fix it and someone told me i need a E3 flasher so i have gone for one and installed it.
I don't have any back ups or anything of files.
But i do have a PS3break v1.2 USBpen
If any one can show me how to fix this i will be thnakful :)
to me it sounds like a update loop i think most times it becouse one of the internals like blue tooth or wifi or blueray drive is not the one it come with. or a cable or wire is loose or broken. do a search for up date loope. like i said it sounds like it.as for the red screen of death i know there is something to do with downgrade gone wrong that it happens sometimes.
