I picked up a 60gb ps3 with YLOD. Seal was broken but I think that was just to remove a game as the cell and RSX still had the original sony thermal paste on them. I gave it a heatgun reflow same as ive done sucessfully to other ps3's and turned it on to no video.
I've tried the video reset mode. Only gives one beep on press of the button then another beep which is the video reset and then one more beep a few seconds later which shuts it down. Tried the recovery mode and no matter how many times I try it it just repeats the above no double or triple beeps.
When powered it give one single flash of the HDD access light and thats it, I can turn it off by the power button but controllers will not sync wired or Wireless. I attempted to reflow it again but it remains the same.
It does the same wether the BD drive is connected or not. Has anyone else had the same and managed to sort it?
