    Model, symptoms, all the information you can give its useful, stating ive just cleaned the Console and gives me 3 beeps isn't enough, not to mention the Thermal Probes has nothing to do with it, they are a integral part of both the CPU and the GPU, to monitor the heat output, they don't interfere with the consoles normal operation procedure.

    uh oh

    PS3 Red Light of Death
    The red light error may also be caused by overheating but equally it may also be because of a major hard drive failure.

    Are you running any custom firmware?
    Try monitoring your console's temperature with the Fan Control Utility.
    If you have Webman or Sman use the shortcut to monitor temps while in game.
    Let us know the results.

    No idea.
    From what I know I had 2 slims with same problem.
    Turn on then turns off right after.
    Binned them.
    Bought another one.
    Problem solved.

    Your Slims have a different issue, than his Phats, i bet 90% its thoes NECs Capacitors that have gone dry, the console doesn't need to stay upwards for 5 Seconds to determine the cause, and the L and H series are more prone to NECs issue than the Early Models, i don't know why but they seemed plagued with issues.

    @daza here is a fun trick you can do, grab a Hair-Dryer and Blow some hot air into the back intakes, keep a distance of 10/15 cm in a horizontal motion for 5/7 minutes, careful not to focus to much heat on the Intake Grill or you are bound to deform it and melt it, if all preformed correctly the console should boot, unless you have corrosion on the BGA Grid due to moisture or water damage which only a reballing will solve it.

    If you can take the Plastic Grill and the Fan, you can focus the heat closer, do not worry, the heat from the hair-dryer won't damage anything BGA related, it doesn't have enough temperature to even make a dent in the BGA Grid, but the heat is more than enough to heat up the NEC/TOKINs to start making them work again, be aware though, this isn't a long time fix, is only temporary and used for diagnostics.

    They had.
    Not anymore.
    Don't worry about them they're probably buried by now.
    As we're talking about a phat model you're probably right about them Nec/Tokin suckers.

    I am not worried, i have more things to worry than over a chunk of plastic lad

    I was just mentioning how he should try checking the console with a Hair-Dryer, if the has the soldering skills he could replace the NECs, but first he needs to make sure that the console powers on while heated from behind.

    Ok will try that .But I know it may be easier to bin them but they still get good coin here so .and yeah I have the gear and skills for replacing components these ps3 weren't with me but I live on a boat for 6 years so yeah know how to fix things . Failing all your good advice I may do a youtube video on how many swings of a hammer it takes to turn a ps3 fat to dust and and small parts :congratulatory:

    You said you have 3 CECHL PS3 models with the same problem ?
    In that case the first thing you should try is to swap the power supplies of them, because maybe one of the PS3's have the power supply faulty

    Next thing you should take a look is this "tokins" components
    https://www.psx-place.com/threads/tutorial-nec-tokin-capacitors-replacement-ylod-fix.25260/unread

    And btw... if you do what naked_snake1995 have mentioned about using a hair dryer to "push" some air into the PS3 be very careful with the plastics (touch it with your finger from time to time) because it melts very easilly
    Is the kind of thing you will not realize until it happens

    But but but... Ive just mentioned that

    But yes, just be careful when heating it from the back, but i would highly advise to remove the Exhaust Grill altogether, the Fan can still take extra heat, as its much durable, now the exhaust grill its a thin plastic, pretty much like the rest of the shell, which melts easily when exposed to heat.

    thanks for your reply there cechk02 .the info i,m now getting from everyone is great . When I started this project it was like trying to herd cats . I,m one of these people that needs to know why things happen . There is so many sites with all the same things (replace the paste /use a heat gun /bake the mother board never made a lot of sense to me . What does make sense to me is that there is components that aren't doing there job and by using a heat gun and so on is just putting a bandaid on not fixing the problem . So to every one that thinks like me a big thanks
