PS3 Super Slim will not turn on, no lights

My Red God of War PS3 Super Slim will no longer turn on. I recently moved and finally pulled it out of the box. It turned on briefly and then immediately shut off. I troubleshot the system and determined the power supply was dead. I ordered a new power supply, installed it, and the console turned on briefly and shut off again. I took the entire thing apart and put it back together again thinking maybe there was a short somewhere. It still will not turn on and no lights come on on the front. Is the motherboard dead?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Is it going red light to yellow light then flashing red light when trying to turn it on?

If yes the main processor has overheated. There's no fix for this other than a reflow which will only allow the console to last a few months longer.

Imo better move on to a PS4.

I get no lights at all when I plug it in. I've already got a PS4, but I still use my PS3 for older games and some of the games I purchased off the PSN.

The system board ended up being dead. I bought a new PS3 and just moved the hard drive over.
