So, I got the YLOD last night. But the thing is I don't think it's an overheating issue. It's a 60gb model CECHC02. It got reflowed for the first time 3 weeks ago, fan mod installed running great.
Bluray drive went, so I got a replacement and successfully completed the remarry process, worked a treat as I have done this before, the drive was reading discs all is good.
Still in FSM, I had the console still on, and i'm holding the bluray ribbon in as the clip to hold it down is broken. The ribbon cable comes out slightly, so I pushed the ribbon cable back into the connector with a little pressure (bit silly while the unit is still on), and all of a sudden I hear 3 beeps, red blinking light. Oh no... turn the console on YLOD.
I've checked all the connections, and everything is plugged in right. Tried a different bluray ribbon cable. Tried putting in a different hdd, and tried power/eject with a dongle still nothing.
I am out of ideas... if anyone could help shed some light on my problem that would be great.
you only get the blinking red light when you start the ps3?, or dous it blink no matter what.
EDIT: your best bet is to try to measure PS6001 if it's faulty.
most wires from that ribbon are communication lines to southbridge and some to the syscon, but if a short on these lines can break a fuse? :dontknow:
there's a 3,3V also on that ribbon but a short there will probably result in a dead ps3 at worst. ;)
if you are lucky it's just that fuse, else it's or a coinsedence or you have bigger problems.
Where is the PS6001 located on the motherboard man? I don't know a hell of a lot about fuses etc? If it is faulty would it be an easy fix?
like i said before i would be surprised if it is faulty, but you have to start somewhere.
you need to have a meter and measure if there's continuity. (0-1 ohm)
first measure if it's faulty, then you can think of replacing it.
