Question about Sony Video Game Consoles & Games
PS3 Slim 3001A turns on for 30 seconds then shuts off- no red standby light- completely off. No yellow lights flash. No video displayed on t.v. Cannot get it into safe mode. When hard drive is removed nothing on the screen shows up such as "hard drive not found". Tried new power cord, power supply unit and new power jack inlet. I don't think reflowing the GPU/CPU would help. I think it is power related, a short or something blown? What else should I try? Any particular components I need to be inspecting? Thanks!
It's gotten so hot it's like the yellow light of death but that's on the older models... It's in the CPU or gpu

Go to you www.youtube.com and you may be able to find helpful videos on this. But if you bought it new it is under warranty and they will fix it. You just pay for shipping.

Hi my name is Juan and unfortunately your ps3 is dead what happen is that for some reason it got so hot and the processor stop working when you turn on the ps3 it does a self test and if something is not working right it turns off immediately with a green yellow red light so don't spend your money in another power supply I can guaranty to you is not the power supply I do sell and fix playstations and this is why I know this this problem is common on the 60Gb and 80Gb also in 40Gb but not like on the 60and 80Gb
