Was in the middle of downloading then game system cut off and blinked red light.i tried to turn it on again then green light,blue,yellow then red and cut off blinking nothing but red.i love my ps3 never had a problem with it its actually one of the first one to come out.i couldnt let it go.i heard the fan come on all of a sudden also before it stopped working.
After taking it apart I noticed some of the square things were not covered ...I never took it apart before so you know what that means...,then I noticed the paste was very dry but thick on the ends.i repaired it and I dont even hear the fan Yahoooooooooo.
Heres my advice.i ordered the arctic paste ..it was grey.when I got the whole ylod kit the paste was white.well I mixed it.i also put a line of paste over the copper ..not on the copper please .once you use the plastic card to smooth the paste on the mother boad thats fine but on the other part I put a line of paste where I thought the copper was.(you cant see it since its covered but use you imagination) let it get stiff before putting it together.i also heated up my motherboard,then I heated the chips like 50 seconds each..all four..... the 25 seconds didnt seem enough.someone mentioned 25...anyway I dont even hear the fan at all. I think its the copper trick.i was nervous..but was upset my ps3 didnt have all the chips covered as they should of been.wish I had pictures..sorry..im so happy its like a week or a week and a half later and everythings fine.oh and please dont even be to stingy with that paste..good luck.
