Problem: green light but no audio/video and remote will not connect
ok, so I've seen a lot of posts about this same problem (no picture/video but light is green on system). I've tried all the normal tricks without success (tv resolution matching and trying to get to recovery menu) I'm pretty sure there is no easy fix for this, besides something ridiculous like adding pennies or shims to put more pressure on chips.
How should I go about fixing this issue? Is this issue with the RSX chip? Will reballing this chip fix this issue? I have a couple systems waiting for me to receive all the equipment I need for a reball but I just need to know if this is one I should attempt a reball or just get rid of for parts. THANKS!!!
This is a system I do not have any history with, so I dont know if has been worked on at all. I have not messed with it, but it looks clean. There is no picture at any time so I have not been able to try re-installing ofw firmware. The person I bought it from said it froze on ps3 menu, but when I tried booting it up I couldnt even get that.
Recently both of my systems had the GLoD. the slim was due to the board bending caused by my e3 clip that needed pennies to hold it on (raised my cpu/gpu temps by ~10-20 F)
I fixed it by removing the clip, bending the metal clamps that hold the gpu/cpu on more.. and that fixed it. My L01 that this happened to, I can't fix. tried bending the metal clamps more, tried increasing pressure more, nothing really worked. I'm guessing if tightening the clamps by bending them more doesnt work it'll need a reball.
The penny trick is just a temporary fix, since all it is doing is putting more pressure on an already cracked solder connection. Even if I had one right now I thought those only worked on lower firmware?
