Instant YLOD on start up, tried everything!
Got hold of a PS3 Slim model CECH - 2003B with a possible YLOD problem!
Striped it down, cleaned it, fitted copper shims and new cpu paste then tried to fire it up but no joy!
Theres around 2 secs when it wants to go then theres a noise from in-and-around the blu-ray drive then the system shuts off. Is it possible that the chips need re-balled or is it the blu-ray drive thats preventing it from firing it up?
Any help is mucho appretiated irregardless of how "Duh!" it maybe, but i'm new to modding/fixing PS3's and have a limited knowledge of 'What's What'.
