Ps3 Green Light 2 Seconds Then 3 Beeps
Posted 10 April 2010 - 04:21 AM
Whenever I try to power on the system first I have to hit the power button two times, the first time it just beeps, and the second a green light comes on and then 3 beeps and off, I never see the red light.
It's one of those 40 gig originals.
Any idea what my problem is?
Was thinking it was the PSU because I shook it a little and it sounded like something was loose. But would the PSU cause the red standby light to come on and when I run a fan test the green lights solid and the fan runs at 100%. Any ideas?

p.s. if you get the green light to come on but you dont see or hear anything chances are you need to turn it on and touch both the eject and power buttons until it reboots then it should be fine.

Hoping one day someone will let me know what this means;
PS. No its not HDD or anything related to the norm, I think its a GPU contact failure issue. BUT!!! Reflows do not work, hoping someone with experience comes around these forums one day and lets me know.

my thermal paste wasnt on the chip it had disinagrated and was sitting around edge of chip!
i done the following
1 - Strip ps3
2 - clean cpu and gpu and heatsinks
3 - re apply Artic silver thermal paste to cpu and gpu
4 - heated rear of board with a hairdryer for 3-5 mins until board board was almost to hot to touch around the chips (alot of peiople say use a heatgun... to hot to quick u just melt the board)
5 - powered ps3 on 10 times as it sat (ylod as expected)
6 - place heatsinks bank on cpu and gpu and reconnected fan and powered back up (ran for around 10seconds then fan went flat out and cut out)
7 - secured heatsinks back onto board and powered up (ran for 2 hours no prtoblems)
8 - rebuilt ps3 checking every stage it was still working
9 - Working ps3
Note - If step 6 doesnt power up and u still have ylod please repeat step 4 for a longer period and focus heat around cpu and gpu!
hope this helps!
