[Answered] PS3 doesn't want to turn on help?
Hi guys. I had removed my flasher on my Ps3, when i had finished the operation i observed that my ps3 didn't want to turn on...there was no red light and no "bip sound". I opened it again and i observed that the cable who colleague motherboard and accension bord (On/off Button and Eject button) was broken.
Than i went to my friend and i asked him to lend me his ps3 slim, i opened it and i replaced my cable with his cable, than my ps3 turned on!
I bought new cable and i putted again his cable on his ps3, and i connected the new cable at my motherboard. When i tried to turn on his ps3, i discovered that it don't work, his red light don't appear and when i press the power button the ps3 do 3 beep but don't want to turn on.
When i tried to turn on My ps3, i discovered that it don't work, but mine don't do 3 beep and the red light don't appear. I'm hopeless, please help me (And sorry for my bad english)

I had this same problem. The Red Light not appearing is due to a few possible reasons:
1.) The cable that is connected from the Power Button/Eject Board to the Motherboard is broken (I had this once)
2.) The Power Supply Unit (PSU) is dead (maybe the fuse blew)
3.) The ribbon from the Blu-Ray Drive is not connected.
4.) The Power Supply isn't connected to the motherboard.
5.) The console may not have enough power or is overheated (3 beeps)
I would order a new cable (1st reason), ask someone if their power supply unit works and if you can use it. Make sure Blu-Ray Drive ribbon is connected and not broken. Make sure PSU is connected to motherboard properly. Also check if the thermal paste is dry, etc. You should get what I mean
