I have tried this multiple times, even took up a few hints about removing the HDD and putting it back in, and then trying.... it still did not work.... does any one have any idea of how to REALLY fix this?!

I have also been searching endlessly for a solution to this problem for my CECH-2001A model PS3 Slim. The majority of the time my system turns on with the GLOD. The rest of the time it works perfectly. I've tried safe mode and went through all the steps numerous times. I've also tried three different hard drives, two different HDMI cables and two different tv's. None of which alleviate the problem. I've also replaced the thermal paste and am religious with keeping it dust free. The only other solution I've found is that the RSX may be the culprit. Other than that, I'm at a loss.

This does not work for me. I get one beep (on) then one beep (off) then it goes red. I have a CECHL01 model. Still no video. Will a reflow also help HDMI loss?
