[Answered] No video or sound on Backwords compatible PS3 help?
I bought this chechA01 on ebay for cheap, because it wouldnt turn on. I opened it up (had already been opened before) and fixed the mangled ribbon cable for the on/off button. After that it turned on just fine. Worked like a champ. Then I decided i would take it apart and replace the thermal paste on it.
Once i got it opened it appeared that the thermal compound had already been replaced before, because it was still tacky and grey, not white. I went ahead and cleaned it and applied new paste anyway, then reassembled it. Turned it on and it wouldn't give me a picture. I reset input by holding down the power button and got it to show up. Then i walked away for a few minutes.
When i returned it was shut off blinking red light. I turned it off then back on. Now it gives me a green light, but wont give video or sound. If I just leave it on, after a few minutes it will shut off. When i try to hold down the power button on start up, it doesn't reset input, it just turns it off. Never shows ylod. Any idea? Possible that this had been heat gunned before and taking it apart brought back some bad juju? Thanks in advance for any input.
Oh yeah, i did try it on a different hdmi cable, and also tried using the rca cord it came with on another tv. No luck.

Thank you for the response. I am afraid you may have misunderstood me. I HAD a picture before I took it apart to repaste it. The unit stayed on fine for 20 minutes before that. Once I took it apart, repasted it, then put it back together, it came up with no picture. I was able to reset the input with power button, and then it came up to a picture.
When I came back a few minutes later, it was shut off blinking red light. Now when I turn it on I get no picture, and holding the power button doesn't reset the input. All it does is turns on with green light. It will stay on as long as I want, but holding the power button down doesn't beep or respond. If you hold it long enough it will turn it off, but that is all. No recovery, no input reset. Thanks
Close thread. I am gonna have it reballed so maybe that will help with it. Thanks for all the input.
