PS3 fan not working
I i have repaired sever PS3's over the past month but i have not encountered something like this.
The PS3 (fat) fan is not spinning. The result being that the PS3 boots with graphics and sound for a few seconds or 1 minute max before shutting down automatically, like its overheating.
I have replaced the fan unit, replaced the PSU, re-flowed Motherboard and replaced all thermal material components. Still the problem persists.
It seems like the fan is not getting power from the motherboard even though there seems to be no damage.
Does anyone have a solution apart from replacing the motherboard?
- PS3 suffered YLOD
- Sent in for repair elsewhere previously - probably re-flowed
- When returned from repair fan runs at max from start up.
- PS3 suffers second YLOD and fan stops working.
