I have tried this multiple times, even took up a few hints about removing the HDD and putting it back in, and then trying.... it still did not work.... does any one have any idea of how to REALLY fix this?!

Yo need to change the Hard Drive, the problem from the Green Light its almost the 90% a HDD that is corrupted or broken. Put the HDD in your PC and format the HDD, then put it back on your PS3 and plug a USB with the latest update for the PS3 it will ask you for the update before format the HDD. Just do what it says on the screen.

PS: Also a easy way to know that its a HDD failure its just removing the HDD and turn on the console, you will get a warning image saying that there is no Hard Drive on the console.

There is a solution that I tried on my ps3 slim when it had the GLOD. I tried using a quarter by placing it on top of the RSX and screwing the cooler back on. Once I booted the PS3 up again it worked! This is a fairly common issue with the PS3 and the Xbox 360 due to heat of the chips causing the solder joints to crack.

I have also been searching endlessly for a solution to this problem for my CECH-2001A model PS3 Slim. The majority of the time my system turns on with the GLOD. The rest of the time it works perfectly. I've tried safe mode and went through all the steps numerous times. I've also tried three different hard drives, two different HDMI cables and two different tv's. None of which alleviate the problem. I've also replaced the thermal paste and am religious with keeping it dust free. The only other solution I've found is that the RSX may be the culprit. Other than that, I'm at a loss.
