viperpulse: Dumbest thing I've ever seen done to a ps3....almost.
SaucyBegger25: An anti static bag is only anti static inside. Remove the old thermal paste before applying new. Use more heat than a hair dryer. Try and actually melt something rather than only turning the flux into liquid. At least earth yourself from static. Never touch electricals internals while on a carpet. And basically get someone that understands what a reflow means and how it works.
MrLefthooker: Nice attempt I suppose, but totally wrong approach. Smearing flux around the 2 chips (RSX and Cell Chip) wont do anything. The Cell Chip (the second chip you smear in this video), for example. What you see is the heat sink/spreader, the chip is underneath this. The spreader is stuck onto the chip socket with silicone. Spreading the flux paste around the base of this chip is like putting a headache tablet on top of your head if you have a headache. Right tool, just used wrongly. By heating the flux it "might" creep under the RSX chip, but deffo not under the Cell chip. Watch Ultra NSC videos, they will put you on the right track.
sammo filipo (sammofilipo): thanks dude, i almost did the oven thing, but i saw your video and i try it, and guess what? the frikin´ thing work, jajaja,
William Mitchell: This video takes things to a whole new level of retard.
beankiller4ever: Let this guy fix the overheating is like giving a gun to a retard!
melvin morgensen: awesome work
rc01010101: This video is a great example... of how to do things very carelessly.
Drac Sawyer: first off never ever ever ever move the motherboard after heating it like that least let ti cool off for about 30 minutes to an hour before applying thermal paste to it you cold of slid the entire cpu off the contacts
deth502: guys, y all the hate? all the negative comments about not enough heat to melt the solder, wrong flux, carpet static, not cleaning the old paste, ect.
those are all moot points. its still not going to work for crap because he never plugged the fan back in.
UltraNSC: OMG are u kidding??? this is not the Sensor, you have this Problem because your Thermal Compound INSIDE the IHS is old and bad. Cut the IHS and apply new Thermal paste and have fun !!! More on my Channel !!!
/: GUYS DONT freakING DO THIS :\ and if you do this, use Flux and a Heat Gun >WTF< and apply NEW THERMAL PASTE !!!
Teknogod17: omg is that a hair dryer. just freaking Christ people.
xModzGalore: Hey asshole No wattage hair dryer is safe pay a freakin pro like me to do a reflow/Reball some people like me do them cheap save the 20 dollars on you're crapty heatgun and pay it to me idiots
videogamegeek “vggeek10” RAYGAH: question. what wattage hair dryer is safe?
Xboxflash.ru: Еще одни горе Мастер, нет денег на ремонт выкинь приставку, приставка дорогое удовольствие и нужно платить .
A Wild Otter Appeared!: Sir, my hats off to you for reaching new a whole new level of stupidity for a very very amateurish attempt at fixing electronics. If you had an idea of what you're doing you wouldn't disassemble a goddamned piece of electronic device on a carpet! Because even if you have an anti-static case place under the PS3 the static can be transmitted through your body which can result in frying the motherboard!
I'm wondering how many circuit boards have died because of your stupid decisions?
EDIT: Did you just forgot to wipe off the old paste? What an idiot!
z HAZE: facepalm... reball ur BGA
SubaruXT6: didnt remove the old heat sink compound but you added new. :/ before reassemble you waited for it to cool down right ?
it works though !
ROOKTABULA: You REALLY should clean the heatsink and chip surfaces so they're bare before applying new paste: That's just asking for issues/headaches down the road by applying new paste to old dry paste.
XLPCX: Hey man. My PS3 just started with the blinking red light right after it turns on from green. I was going to ask what type of flux you used and then what the other stuff you put on it after that? Thanks
