I’ve always looked after it and cleaned it regularly, but once that dust is inside its not coming out unless you take it completely apart. This is a split board – You can return to the Split List for other boards. That said, reflows are only a temporary fix. They weren’t able to save my ps3, possibly because the first place i took it to messed it up beyond repair, but gophermods has got to be the company i’ve dealt with in years.

Giksy my 60gb only lasted a further two weeks so I gave up had backed up all saves by this point and had it replaced under CP. Total class, all the way. It played up a few times last week before i put my new HDD at the weekend by turning off and giving the signs that it was overheating, even tho it always run cool and never revved up I always had the thought of it lasting a little longer tho with it being the 40GB model prone to BD failures so i was half expecting that to be what it would fail.

How to disassembly Power Supply in PS3-40GB

English Back to Top. They fixed it, it cost me more than it would have to switch to 40gh slim, but I got the better deal. Accepted Solution View Original.


4g0b Sony can take the slims and the super slims and shove them up their asses. No point it starting threads saying ”new HDD broke my console” or ”I’m taking Gilkksy to court” XD I’m still a loyal fan and plan on being back up this weekend: Keep me logged in on this device. But as I said I just got on with it and fixed it. That is what I did, they wanted me to trade my system in and pay to switch it out for a slim, and I flat out refused.

I did the reflow on gilksh 60gb with a hot air gun, I didn’t have the thermal pads either The only obvious sign is the thermal compound has absolutely dried up being the clear indicator of the cause of my YLoD so surly that’s all i need to do.

PS3 freezing on system restore, need help. So i have decided to repair it myself following Gilksy’s videos on you tube.

SauceyWombat SauceyWombat 6 years ago 4 Sorry for your loss. Beavis is da man Vote Stu for PM: The fan was bad as well and using a paint brush on the inside of each blade was quite tough to clean off and then caused a cloud of dust in my room i had to vacate lol. Sorry for your troubles though and I hope you get a longer fix than I did.

But in this case i was wrong: I second the gophermods recommendation. Anyhow my little chips looked instact and fine as well. I will say one thing tho and I’m not saying this caused it but it certainly wouldn’t help things and that is the sheer amount of dust i found inside: To me i see yilksy as maybe being unnecessary and could cause more damage.


So i will regularly open her up now to give it a proper clean. Two other good companies are endlesselectronics. Sony Electronics Sony Mobile.

But i can gilksh and as far as i know all that needs doing is the thermal paste on the chips. But I did it anyhow and it worked fine. What Hardrive should I buy for PS3? Just do the reflow big boy it should bring her back to life again, i have to say it made me sad when I read your post the otherday.

Supersoldier Supersoldier 6 years ago 6 Get it fixed by Sony, and when they try to offer you switching to a slim refuse. Using a hoover on a vent doesn’t do one gilkst but clean whats off the vent itself! View our house rules for posts. Keep me logged in on this device Forgot your username or password?
