Y.L.O.D. Has Claimed a New Victim
I Had bought a repair kit from IFIXIT which had a few complications getting to me, but got to me which wasn't an issue. As I followed a different step by step repair guide due to the guide not being the guide used for my specific model of the PS3; I was able to reach the motherboard in which where the problem truly happens. I had first removed the old thermal paste from both chips and the two heat sinks, cleaned them till they shined and made sure that there was no excess thermal paste. Once then I grabbed the no clean flux which is recommended for a more successful repair, letting it seep under the chips and pass through the other side to ensure that it went all the way through. I did this with both chips. Once then I grabbed the "handy dandy" heat gun and put it on the low setting to begin warming the board for about 1 minute or 2; re-locating to the two main chips and started heating them at a closer ranger for about 1-2 minutes on each individual chip in a clock wise motion. Once finished, i let the board sit for about 30 minutes to cool and began to apply my AS5 once the board was cool enough to be touched to both chips. I then backtracked, putting the PS3 back together(excited as I was), I pressed the power button on the PS3 when all of a sudden *beep beep beep*........I don't know what I specifically did wrong or it might of been the PS3 itself, but I feel as if I wasted $50 on this kit just for it not to be in working condition.
Is this a good question?
