I have been trying to fix a friends ps3 for a few days now and i belive that it is dead, but there really isnt any good info out there on this. Exept for reflowing it. I have reflowed it and i also used flux to ensure proper soldering. I have done atleast 20 or 30 xbox reflows so i know what im doing. the problem is that i dont belive that the gpu and or the cpu is the cause. is there any other things to look for. A visual inspection shows that all is good.
I also noticed something i haven't read yet. If i hold down the eject button while flipping the main power switch, it doesnt ylod right away. It takes about 30 seconds or so till it does it. but does act like an overheating issue cause the fan is blowing at full power.
Now that being said. Is there a temp sensor or something that might have gone bad that might make the system think it is over heating when in reality it is not.
Any advice and comments welcome
thanks in advance.
oh, and the washer trick is crap too...
