    Hello everyone, I have a problem that happened to me today and I hope to have answers, I turned on my ps3 and started the HEN so that the cooling mode was activated and I started Metal gear solid 4 all normal, suddenly my ps3 command did not recognize the console , I had to plug the cable into the remote control, it took about 4 hours and suddenly the console went off suddenly (until the red light), I had to disconnect the power cable and reconnect, the console did not even pass 15 seconds later since it went off suddenly, this happened 2 times until it did not turn on again, I tried another power cable but it did not work because it was dead, it became a paperweight and it is very strange since I always connect it to a regulator. voltage, my theories would be the HEN, since I did not have 2 months installed (although that tool is very useful but I did not get into its configurations), electricity (here we suffer from power outages but in that I am very careful), I have 5 years with that console until today 2019, some solution already that buying another console of those is impossible, since I am stuck in venezuela and get funds or another currency, whether dollars is a bit complicated, some solution or theory?

    HEN only patches RAM. It's not really possible for HEN to do anything to your console.

    It sounds like your console just gave up. PS3 consoles die everyday, just a coincidence.

    More than likely the power supply. Not the end of the world and a blind mute with one hand can fix this for a few quid. If you can use a screw driver then your good. Instead of saying you have bad news you can test this theory with a multimeter. Or just go get one off eBay or the likes where you live. Unscrew the seven screws on the bottom one being the HDD caddy then two more on the inside. Simply unplug the PSU then pop the new one back in and tighten it all back up. Will take about fifteen minutes.

    Thank you very much for responding :), maybe it's just a bit of accumulated dirt for 5 years and some thermal paste to the CPU, I'll try maintenance but first I have to look for the T7 screwdriver, because it's very difficult here look for that type of screwdriver, and if it does not work, I'll have to sell a kidney to buy the power source, the truth and investigated by forums and this error is very common in this type of consoles

    You can use just a small blade flat head ti get that one screw out. I did then tossed it out as I switch HDD quiet often. Never had an issues with it.

    I'm fully aware but you can use the small flat head screw driver that comes with a glasses repair kits that are cheap. That's how I got mine out it wasn't a torx screwdriver. They wedge in between and work fine. Or any precision flat head with a small tip works fine.

    I'm going to try that, connect the ps3 to the current, turn on the red light but then turn it off, can it be the source of power or a little dust in the power source?

    You can try this, it should work,at least for disgnostics! Get something heavy like a brick or a vase, and put it on top of the PS3 near the power supply (further back), and see if it powers on, ive heard some oddities about that issue on the 4000 Series, although personaly never happend to me.

    Could be or maybe somehow a cable came loose? Never hurts to pull it apart and give it a good cleaning and check everything is as it should be.

    a friend told me that it could be damp, since that day it rained, I will leave the console disconnected and without a hard drive one day to see what happens

    yeah, that's torx. if it has a hole in the middle, it's torx security, which I believe is what a lot of cars use.

    Nah it's not a security one just a standard torx. The security ones have a raised bump in the middle. Any way as I said a fine tipped flat head screw driver will work in a pinch. Then I toss it out as it's not really needed. The plastic plate holds the HDD in place. Makes swapping drives easier and faster.

    That's what the security ones look like. The PS3 just has the standard one without the raised point in the middle. Those can't be removed with just a small screwdriver.
