Hi I just got a ps3 from a friend with no video (he just gave it to me for some money he owed me) Anyhow, I took it apart and found quite a bit of dust in it so I fully cleaned it put some new heat sink paste(white) between the 2 large chips and fans and put it back together. So I turn it on and it works!!!
I am so happy, I put a game in it and bam it loads and I am playing away. So I play for a bit then have to go to work. I come home and it has no video again, I was like DAMN so I took it apart and tightened everything back up and once again it works, and once I shut it off it will come back on if it is more then like 10 mins.
Any ideas on how to fix it, the model is a 60gig and I think it was updated to around 2.32. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.
Also one other item of interest on this issue. While having the no video, the controller will not access via usb or wireless. It seems like the USB ports are not working also.
