Unless you have other serious problems, this guide works. i had a different model than the one here (CECHG01) but, follow the guide and it will serve you well. Took a gamble buying my PS3 at a Goodwill for $50, had the YLOD but, with help from this site, i brought it back from the dead. It currently cant find the HDD but i think that's mostly due to my ignorance trying to reconnect the blu ray to MB ribbon wire and bent it horribly plus, i mildly injured the infamous clip. Avoid those mistakes, and you'll have a working PS3. Thank you Ifixit.com.
