Jared, give this a try. Of course triple check your work first. make sure that all your connections are snug. Hope you got a multimeter as well

1 – Check for loose cables.

2 – Take out all cables and plug them back in.

3 – Try to take out your HDD drive. Once it’s out, put it back in again.

4 – Restart your console.

Here are the Level 3 service manuals for the PS 3.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

They will show the layout of your logic boards as well as a parts list. Trace your power supply and see if it is a component on the power circuit that has failed. Good Luck and let us know if and when you get it narrowed down a bit.

+ Good share OT03, I hope you don't mind if I call you that. I caught this off of an earlier posting and it helped my put together a system that I had my time into, but no money into, with a bent motherboard and damage on several layers of the MB. Very few "manuals" are as detailed as these are.
