If you just reflowed it you probably didn't connect the wireless / bluetooth board up correctly.

Check out these pictures to see what I'm referring to.

Pic 1, Pic 2 (sorry about the 2nd pic, especially if you're from Texas!)

Also check the cable underneath to make sure it's nice and solid.

Let me know if that solves your issue, otherwise we'll try something else.

Auto System Update gets always the error code 8002F1F9 and still persists... And whenever I close the PS3, it does it again...


Okay from what I have researched on this problem its some sort of YLOD effect (Yellow Light Of Death). Here is what you do I have a link to my step-by-step on how to fix the problem, but instead of reflowing the 4 small sections you need to reflow the whole board. It will be very time consuming but from what I understand it has worked for quite a few people. Let me know if you need more help.

I can confidently say your ps3 is about to go YLOD, nothing really that you can do about it, if you wanna continue to use it you will have to do a reflow with a heat gun which is a very delicate process, I would advice you to sell it after doing the reflow and let the person buying know about the impending problem since it is a recurring one, go on youtube and search for "Gilksy ps3 reflow", Hope this helps

My ps3 reads system is to hot and shuts down within five minutes. I don't think the fan is working at all. No warranty how can I fix this myself? I know how to take ps3 apart and I've cleaned the dust out...


Try upgrading the firmware as well.. Or doing a factory reset..

The error code could simply be stuck, and an upgrade or system restore may fix the issue if you have already cleaned the fans.

PS3 console shutting down by itself


what you got is what is know as yellow lite of death --YLOD

this is the site i got the info from...
http://boardsus.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-General/Unofficial-Yellow-Light-of-Death-YLOD-Informative-Still-Thread-R/m-p/40726489

and you are not the only one to experience this. more and more ps3 owners are getting hit with this problem. your best bet will be to send it off to sony if its under warrenty for they'll fix it for free. but be cautious of this for they may even replace your system and you may not get your original system back. if its not under warrenty you'll get hit with an $150 charge.
background

The YLOD is a major hardware failure for the PlayStation 3. The specific cause is somewhat known, but Sony has not commented about this failure whatsoever. Some theories for the cause include: overheating (accelerated by dust build-up), blu-ray drive failure, bad power supply, and/or a hard drive critical error. **UPDATE** According to an eBay store that repairs YLOD PS3's, the hardware failure is caused by either/or of two things:



1. Hardware malfunction on the motherboard due to heating/cooling (solder physically cracking/breaking) which can be fixed by "reflowing", which is a fancy way of using a machine that has a super controlled (+ or - .5 degrees) hot air nozzle to re-melt the solder on the base of the defective chip to re-attach it.

2. The power supply has the failure in one of its capacitors or diodes. This can also be fixed by "reflowing" but it is harder to diagnose due to the need to chase down which one it is. **According to this eBay store, this scenario is a much more difficult way to repair PS3's with the YLOD. They state they can only repair 8 out of 10 PS3's with the YLOD**

You know you have received the YLOD when the following occurs (Can also be seen here):

* You power on the console.
* The console starts up normally for about 2-3 seconds,
* The console beeps 3 times while flashing a faint yellow light,
* The console continues to flash a red light.

Ps3 error 80010201


this error means that a cable is unplugged or some thing like that: last night, my ps3 got a YLOD and because of that i had to open my ps3 and fix it(using gilksy method(it really works!)), after i reassembled my ps3, I got a 80010201 error and realized that my ps3 doesn't recognize controllers at all(even after i connected them to ps3 using USB cable). anyway, i reopened my ps3 and check all the vires and connections and reasembled my ps3 again, the problem was solved. so if you got the same problem, just open the thing and check all connections and unplug and reinsert all the ribbons. it should fix 80010201 problem.

80010201 Error code and controllers won't connect


In the 60gig ps3 it was the CWI-001 board located under the sd mini sd/ cf / m pro board and above the usbs. I replaced mine and controllers, wired and wireless Internet work fine.
That fixed my problem I hope that this helps. Good luck
