After re-flowing, in some cases it last for a year or two.In some cases it just dies in a week or two.If the soldered point gets melted or loose then the circuit will get short again, in that case again the re-flow has to be done.But in most of the cases it helps and last longer.In some cases it dies and has to be repaired/ re-flowed again.For more help on the re-flow and more troubleshooting.click this link:----- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/03/re-flow-ps3-basics-and-troubleshooting.html -------------------- This should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

No power to PS3


No power at all? Does it have any lights in the front? If so what is it showing? What colors and are they flashing? If no power at all it is the power supply...go to eBay buy one for 40-50 dollars. If it is flashing yellow and red lights your motherboard needs reflowed.

This problem happens with some of the PS3's and it is a motherboard issue. The PS3 motherboard needs to be reflowed using a reflow station. I have one of these stations on it's way to be able to fix this issue if you still have this problem. You can contact me at ced70@hotmail.com for more details.

Thanks,
Ced

Everytime i turn the system on the screen goes black and stays that way and if it does go through to the home screen no icons appear


Wow! That is a new one on me. Does it ever shut itself off or will continue to run? I think you have a faulty motherboard and that it will need to be reflowed. The screen going black is a good indication that the motherboard GPU needs to be reflowed but the title screen loading I have never seen that before.

Please provide more detail on your issue. What do the lights do in the front of the PS3? Most likely it is an issue where the Ps3 needs to be reflowed.
