[Answered] PS3 automatically goes into Fan Test Mode help?
I have a 40 gb Phat model and when you turn on the power swititch the red pilot light comes on,Then when you try to turn it on the light turns green and the fan comes on 100% for about 45 seconds then it beeps several times and the it has the red blinking light. I acts just lik the fan test mode except I am not toching the eject button.
I poped the top off and tried it and the same thing happened... So I got to looking very close at the eject tab and noticed some light residue, maybe fron something that could have been spilled on it. Anyway I took it apart and cleaned that area real good with some MEK and put it back together and then every thing worked as it should but then after about a hour or so I tried it again and it was back the way it was, the problem has to be something in or to do with the eject switch.
I tried pulling up on it ,but made no difference... It seems to be "sensing" that you are touching it even though you are not. I was thinking of de-soldering the metal tab and removing it to see if that made any change?? What do you guys think??
