    Exclamation [Answered] PS3 won't power on help please?

    Sponsored Links
    I have a launch ps3 and have replaced the factory thermal paste with artic silver prob. 2-3 years ago and everything has been fine until the other day. I went to turn the ps3 on and noticed the connector to the board with the power button/eject button/lights on it had been broke off

    (i have had the top of the ps3 off for awhile to help with cooling and ease of cleaning). It turned on fine with the controller and i played for awhile and turned it off. a couple days later i turn it on with the controller and played a hour or so and think i turned it off but now i can't say for sure.

    a couple days later i went to turn it on with the controller like always and it is totally unresponsive and since the connector to the board with the lights on it is broken i can't tell if it has the ylod or anything, there are no beeps though, it simply just sits there unresponsive.

    I just tested my psu and got 5v on the 2 5v pins and when i shorted the 3v and the outer 5v pins i got 12v on the 12v hole, i did not however get any voltage on the 3v pin when i tested for voltage there. can anyone help me out with this? i don't know if it's the psu or a fried mb...

    anyone?

    I think they are same, but just message the buyer to be sure its for cecha01

    That is the power on/off eject board.

    Even if the little spring thing for turning on the ps3 broke off, you still should be able to press down on it with your finger and turn it on. Mine broke off on a CECH G01 and I take cover off and turn it on that way, or you have more serious issues.

    You can get a new power/eject board for cecha01 on ebay or similar for like $12

    it was the whole connector, not the spring piece, so i don't have lights or anything to diagnose a rlod or ylod...

    Remove the bluetooth/wifi board ribbon and place it again. You probably misplaced it a little bit that's why you cant turn it on with the controller.

    That didn't seem to do any good.... would it be cheaper for a power button board or bt/wifi board?

    Don't buy a new bt/wifi board because in order to work you have to power on the ps3. Just buy the power and eject button board.
