PS3 With Red Light And Beeping Sound Repaired







An American friend of mine brought me this PS3 for repair. It belongs to his two kids and recently, the machine was not working the way it should. The moment it was powered on, it is supposed to change from red light into green but instead, it was only getting red light flashing and a beeping sound then shuts off.

This is a self check at start up and seems like something inside this machine

causing the self check to find something wrong there.

It is an old PS3 but taking it apart is very easy and as seen in the photo just take this parts off and I will be able to see the main board.

The parts were off and I am getting closer to the main board which I think it is the main cause of the problem here.

Very dusty board and if you look closely to the bottom left side of the board I could see something spilled on board and I was not happy to see that.

It looks and smells like coffee spilled here.

More spilled stuff here as well and the more I see of this the more I get nervous and the chance of getting this fixed is very slim.

That looks very bad and seems like someone tried to clean it up but instead made it worse since the thermal past is spread all over the board and it is not supposed to be like that.

I started to clean the board and making sure all the thermal paste is off these parts and after all this cleaning was done, I decide to reflow the main two IC’s because I checked online about his fault and everyone recommended to do this process.

To my surprise, after all the cleaning, reflowing the main two IC’s, adding the fresh thermal paste and then putting all back together it actually worked.

Yes, it worked but my question is how long it is going to last? I informed the customer and he was ok with whatever it happens because he is planning to get a new PS4 or PS5 for his children.

Mission Accomplished.

    Good job! Consoles are like e-caps. When they are used a couple of years without any scheduled checkup or cleaning they collapse from overheating, dust or some other reason. .

    Good success Waleed: Some times the internet has some good tips for repair, re-flowing those IC's, and cleaning up the board worked. What cleaner did you use?
