    Default I don't know why, but I did

    I just bought a PS3, it'll be here in a few days, and my controller will be here a bit after the console gets here.

    Not sure the version it's on, it's a phatty. I'll pick up a E3 soon enough when it gets here.

    Update: Got the PS3 few days ago, but since I wasn't feeling well I haven't gotten around to messing with it.

    It's a Phat PS3 CECHA01, that's right, the 60GB backwards compatible model with four USB slots and memory card bay.

    Reflowing it right now, and getting a friend to reball it in about two weeks.

    Let me know how it goes. I picked up another console for $40 shortly after I talked to you earlier. Gonna see what good the thermal paste does.

    So I've been told. Going to pick up some tomorrow if the snow isn't an issue. Been whiteout conditions the past couple days.

    Got the console all torn down and the other shit cleaned off of the CPU and GPU. With a one second window between turning on and off, I've heard that it can be the power supply. I'll look into that if this doesn't fix it.

    With no thermal paste on the either of the plates, the metal to metal trigger it to shut down before even initializing. This is to prevent further damage to the board.

    I've only had to fix a power supply once, and it's symptoms was no power at all, or red light that when hit goes black until it's unplugged and sits for about 30minutes.

    Hope weather clears up for you.
