[Answered] PS3 GLOD - can it be fixed ?
My PS3 recently developed the YLOD, so I did the reflow method, following Gilsky's YLOD repair guide. It worked for a few minutes, as the XMB came up. But when I tried to play a game in the blue ray drive, the PS3 went to standby suddenly.
Now, everytime I turn on the console, the green light comes on, but I get no video or audio. The controllers do not sync either. From reading, I have realised that I now have the GLOD.
I have tried the video reset method, by holding the power button down until it beeps, but that just goes back to standby. I have tried to get to the recovery menu, goes back to standby also.
Is there anything else I can try ?
Reflowing the RSX & Cell processor is not enough for the 60Gb model (COK-002)
Firstly, you need to remove the heatspreader from the RSX (check youtube) otherwise you will damage it. The southbridge chipset near the HDMI/AV ports needs to be reballed/reflowed as this is the main controller for the video/SATA/NAND etc.
Vorlone - no wonder you can't repair them... Your reflow profile is completely wrong. Bottom heater should be doing 70% of the work, top heater does the other 30%. You should be heating the underside to ~180*c and then use the top heater to raise the temp of the die to ~220-225*c or until the point of liquidus
Please don't say you use a heatgun...
