Use this guide to completely replace your motherboard. Before reattaching the heat sink, be sure to apply a new layer of thermal paste.

    • Turn the PS3 over and lay it on its backside.

    • Carefully peel the warranty sticker up off the lower case to reveal a hidden screw cover.

    • To avoid activating the VOID that may come up, heat the sticker carefully to remove and replace it cleanly.

    Don’t even need to bother with the sticker anymore since SONY does not care what you do with them anymore.

    Can we edit this to say 4 screws?

    revanantwraith - Antwoord

    I made the change from three to four screws, but you're able to edit the guides as well. If you want to edit something, you can click the Edit link on the right side of any guide step, or the Edit link at the top right of the page (sandwiched in-between View and History).

    Do you guys have a guide for the PS3 Slim Model 3001A. The fan is different than this model.

    emknight04 - Antwoord

    3001a is basically same motherboard but cheaper plastic bd drive other than that its exactly the same until you get to the new slim line

    Anyone know an online retailer with a competitive price for the replacement fan?

    My PS3 had only three Torx screws. Having four in the diagram was initially confusing. Obviously they made a mid-stream change at some point (mine is several years old now).

    Take the top off the drive, connect the ribbon to the motherboard then replace the drive sliding the ribbon through the slot on the bottom of the drive and reconnect to the laser.

    If the screw has a pin in the center, that means it is a security Torx meant to prevent tampering. To remove this screw, follow the guide I have linked below...

    Question: if a screw doesn't come out, what do you recommend, without potentially damaging the system, inside and out?

    kramiz2488 - Antwoord

    It seems these can be quite tight, but they did come loose with someextra force in my case. They did that thing where it makes cracking sounds, but nothing really breaks. They're just really tight in there. - I just wouldn't recommend taking these out too often.

    These screws work as a ground pass through between the motherboard shields and the power supply. My cousin took his PS3 to a repair shop to replace the power supply, they didn’t put the screws back in after that and the PS was shutting down suddenly (no light green or red), put a couple of new screws and it’s being working fine since

    • Continue to lift the left edge of the power supply until it lifts off the two metal posts shown in the second picture.

    • Remove the power supply from the PS3, minding any cables that may get caught.

    It seems it kind of ends for me here. I can only lift the left side about an inch and then the right side stays down like it’s stuck to something underneath. It feels like I’m bending something. Could something have melted underneath?… It's really stuck, I can't get it to come loose. And I can't see much shining a light into it either. - Any tips?…

    Michael Hendriks - Antwoord

    Did you undo the screws?

    Phoenix Jameson -

    I had the same issue but was able to get it off. The right side (as per the above picture) has two long column like sections that actually goes into the machine. Took me a bit of wiggling and some brute force.

    Ivan Amaro - Antwoord

    You just lift the whole power supply up. There’s no need to start from the left? Is it possible to bend the two metal posts if lifting from the left?

    Ken - Antwoord

    Needs medium flat screw driver as wedge to help to lift the power supply in the right side or exert more force in your right arm provided the front of PS3 is at your front.

    I popped a friends apart to see if I could put in mine, which won't stay online for more than 1minute 10 seconds. Plays DVDs fine. Anyway, his had 3 cables and mine only has 1. How do I know which DVD player to order?

    ntdoc - Antwoord

    Completely different drive in my slim. 3 ribbon cables on the back that pull straight up out of their connectors. And one wide ribbon hidden underneath and almost impossible to get to. After disconnecting the 3 visible cables lift the back of the drive about 3/4" and use a plastic spudger to release the clip on the cable before lifting off the drive. Reinstalling is a nightmare. The cable has a black line to indicate how far to insert into the connector. Get it in there somehow then use the spudger to push the clip down. If it's not level release it and try again and again and again until you get it right. Sony must use some awfully small fingers when they build these ;-)

    My disk drive needs to be replaced. Your step by step is straight forward and are very helpful. At the end you mentioned “If replacing the Blu-ray drive with a new drive, swap the circuit board from your old drive into the new drive”.

    Which circuit board? Can your please add a picture of the circuit board you are referring to?

    @hh168 There’s now a link in the text of that step, which will take you to a video with detailed instructions for swapping the board.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    First I replaced the drive and it would load a disc and see that it was either a game and which game or a BluRay or DVD and which, but I got error codes when trying to play them.

    The codes seemed to be tamper coding, and swapping the board seemed to be a good idea.

    It went smoothly, but now discs will not feed into the drive.

    Please help.

    Visegradi Istvan - Antwoord

    ONLY FOR EXPERIENCED ELECTRICIANS!

    It is not impossible to clean the removed connector from the panel parts and then glue the connector back on the panel. It depends how much connection is left on the board (you might able to clean a bit of green carefully to increase connection size) with a bit of experience you can solder it back/together again. The power and ground needs better connection since it needs to able to carry the current. The RPM signal has the least connection size on this side of the board but it needs only a bit of connection.

    Other possibility to bring from the board other side the 3 fan connection points with some tiny cables but that is more labour intensive and you might need to cut a bit from the metal panel to make space of the cables.

    Anyway it is a doable job for an experienced repair person.

The most hardest thing of taking consoles apart is putting them back together. I strongly suggest you guys to explain with details on putting it back together. It might be easy to you all but there are people that rather read a few pages than completely $!$@ up the system console.

Fantastic guide overall! Doesn't cover screw head sizes as well as I'd like, but that for the most part isn't a problem here, as it's mostly just variations of Philips heads. The other concern is the lack of clarification that other people may have models that look quite distinctly different inside, but the guide was still easy enough for me to follow overall.
