I'm a user since 2010, but in the last 2 years I left the electronics repair due to job in programing. Now I decided come back and try to repair my PS3 consoles. Currently I have a small console's collection. In this collection I have 5 PS3 fat models, all of them have problems and I wanna a help to try fix them. Below have the model of PS3 and a small description of your error:
CECHE01: It had YLOD when I bought, I've made a reflow and it worked, but after months the YLOD has reappeared. When the PS3 turns on, the fan spins, the Digital out (Optical) blinks and the PS3 emits 3 bips. Both Cell and RSX are cold;
CECHH12: It overheated and now it's dead;
CECHA01: When I bought, it turns on and after 20 seconds turns off due overheating. I decided remove the IHS and after this the PS3 got a YLOD(or BSJF). When I turn it on the Digital out ( optical) lights and the green led of network connection lights, fan spins, shortly thereafter the PS3 have 3 bips. The cell gets hot and the RSX is slightly heated;
CECHC03: The unique that works partly. When I bought it has artefacts on the image and shortly thereafter it has a black screen and the controller doesnt work. Everytime that I make a reflow the PS3 works normally, but hours after the black screen come back;
CECHB00: It has a YLOD. When I turn on the PS3 the Digital out blinks weakly, the fan spins and the PS3 have 3 bips. Both Cell and RSX are cold.
I found a brazilian project that consist in make a reballing machine with infrared lamps. Do you know another similar project?
