[Answered] Blu-ray ejects from YLOD help?
Someone has brought me a YLOD to repair but this one is a little different from any one I've done before.
I've given it a reflow as usual and the YLOD is still there. That happens sometimes so I was just going to try it again but then I realised the Bluray drive still accepts and ejects discs before the YLOD comes in and knocks it off.
I'm thinking maybe it's a software YLOD instead of the usual hardware fault so I figured I'd just ask if anyone else has come across a YLOD where the Bluray drive is still responsive (before I start trying to flash stuff and making things much much worse lol)
it's a CECHH03 if it helps.
I sorted this one today.
Turns out there was a short on the PSU, looked like some rust or something had crossed a few tracks on the underside of the PCB. A quick clean (and more than a few small shocks lol) later all was well. Might be worth looking into for anyone having a similar problem.
