[Answered] Blue led lights for a second on power on help?
Bought a used faulty PS3, the seller said he took it to a shop and it needed a new part but couldnt remember what(hes got good feedback and no negs and sells high priced items a lot)
When I first turned on I got a yellow light for a second then a non stop flashing red light.
Now I get the blue led next to the main one come on for a second when turned on then it goes off and I get a red flashing light.
Any ideas? Someone told me its blu ray fault but would it be logic board or the drive? Just as I have parts from a 60 gig ps3 I can use.
Even with a bad blu ray the system should still be bale to make it to the XMB. yellow and flashing red usually mean a YLOD from what you have described. the fat PS3 i have with a bad laser isn't even in the case and it boots up with CFW on i. You may want to look into a reflow of the CPU/ GPU chips on it. there are plenty of how to's on YouTube. One of the best i have seen is the one by Gilksy.
Here is a link for the first tutorial. it shows the light issue you were describing. take a look and see if its similar.
