OK does it beep when it powers off. Cause if it does this could one more thing, make sure the fan is working and that there is a some good heat sink compound on it. I have one do the same thing and all that it was is someone took it apart and then didnt put heat compound on it. If it does beep when it powers off by itself it could be that the ps3 is overheating.
Ok, I am trying all of everyone's suggestions so it's going to take me sometime to figure this whole thing out and there are no beeps...yet. I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner and I am really grateful for everyone's input on here. Thank you all
I am also thinking of just replacing parts since it seems that this thing is pretty dirty and maybe these parts are just dying or whatever. Are all fat PS3s compatible with each other, parts wise?
Like can I swap parts with others and make this one work? I have 2 that is why I am asking and with the extra, I'll just hold to or just throw out or recycle or something. I'll report more as I continue here. I have some ideas... just gotta try them.
Ok. What is happening is that when I power it on, it turns on then it beeps quickly like 3 times and then it shuts off and the red light is blinking on and off. It is lke in standby mode but, when I go to turn it on again it just won't but this red light is blinking. I think it might be hardware problem.
Damn... but, I checked out this pdf... you've got to be kidding me! Reflowing is all that?! hahaha oh wow, man I got my work cut out for me, hahaha. BTW, this thing was VERY dirty man. I cleaned it out though.
