Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
If you have any available PS3 60GB model motherboards available and up for sale, I'm looking for one to replace my current broken motherboard. My email: Jamesbondkillalot007@yahoo.com. Thanks!
You can't just replace the motherboard, the blu-ray is tied to the motherboard number, so if you put in a new motherboard it won't read blu-ray games anymore. Check http://www.edepot.com/playstation3.html to find out how it is tied to the motherboard.

I've put some scratches on the 60 GB PS3 mobo. I've tampered with it, and well as it is. I'm wandering if possible do you know anyone who can solder the scratches to fix them.
I'm thinking of asking SONY to send my back my $$ for repairing my 60 GB PS3, and instead order a PS3 slim, and work to find someone who can fix my 60 GB.

I have seen this a couple of times. Lightning or an overload has burned up the motherboard. Its not a fuse, its a fried Emotion Engine processor. Best advice on dead motherboard is to probably total it unless you can get a low price motherboard replacement. My cost on a new motherboard for slim is about $55. If you want it fixed, replace the motherboard. Really you may be able to get another Slim for $55 or less. If you look on ebay for another motherboard do not take any chances on used motherboards. Go for a broken slim model that will boot up but want read discs. When you get one that boots up, use its motherboard in your Slim. This will be your best deal at getting your slim up and running once more.
