    Well, sorry bud but I think it's toasted, only thing to do is find every bad component and replace them by tracing the short. Then hope you get lucky!

    u were probs best keeping to the other thread since ur chasing issues not related to this thread as such now but i guess some muppets thinks its better? lol. we need pics of ur work. even show us where u are probing for these shorts?? there are many small caps across the board that appear shorted but they are not, (people have even mentioned it in this thread) so we need more info from u other wise we are all just guessing and hoping to find a fault thats possibly related to ur issue but could be leading u in the wrong direction.

    Hi guys, im new in this forum. Just one quick question to ask. Can we just leave the old NEC TOKIN capacitor on the motherboard but instead made some jumper from the point beside the capacitor to the new tantalum capacitor? It's like we connect the Negative pad to the negative point of the capacitor and so on with the positive point.

    Will this work? Sure the new capacitor needs to be properly insulate after the jumper wire is connected to prevent shorting on other smd parts of the motherboard.

    Sorry for noob question. Because i don't have enough tools to remove the NEC TOKIN. Only have solder set right now.

    Thanks in advance.

    NEC/TOKIN wants to know your location
    It has been a while since, my last visit, so I'll leave some juicy stuff here, yesterday another CECHC04 was brought to life, by our Holy Tantalum "jokes aside", this unit belongs to one of my personal friends, he bought this unit out of curiosity, as he wanted to have a Backwards Compatible unit, unfortunately for him, he didn't bought the best shaped console, the console was in rough cosmetic and internal conditions, it would turn on, but occasionally it would YLOD straight away, so he insisted to me that i took a look at it, and do something about it if possible, although he already knew that the Capacitors were not in the best of shape, at first i refused, as i don't do repairs on units, other than my own, but since he insisted, and saw the regret for being scammed with his purchase, i started to work in the unit, this time the formula was a bit different from my CECHC04 that was used when the guide was written back in July of last year, 3x330uF at 2.5V were used for each NEC/TOKIN, two NECs on the RSX front and one on the CELL, as an update, the console works flawlessly with anything you throw at it, not much else to update, my personal CECHC04 is almost approaching his 1st year since the last years replacement, its running well with no issues, other than a 6 month internal cleaning and thermal paste replacement.

    Unfortunately due to Tapatalk upload limitations, i couldn't upload both pictures for reference, so I'll have to upload them tomorrow on the forums normally.

    Happy repairs and stay safe

    As posted yesterday,ill leave the work done here, the solder job above wasnt the final one,it was merely temporary for testing, if the console would work fine, afterwards i redid the traces and soldered them properly and cleanly

    Happy repairs and stay safe
