    Can we edit this to say 4 screws?

    revanantwraith - Ответить

    I made the change from three to four screws, but you're able to edit the guides as well. If you want to edit something, you can click the Edit link on the right side of any guide step, or the Edit link at the top right of the page (sandwiched in-between View and History).

    Do you guys have a guide for the PS3 Slim Model 3001A. The fan is different than this model.

    emknight04 - Ответить

    3001a is basically same motherboard but cheaper plastic bd drive other than that its exactly the same until you get to the new slim line

    Anyone know an online retailer with a competitive price for the replacement fan?

    Jared - Ответить

    My PS3 had only three Torx screws. Having four in the diagram was initially confusing. Obviously they made a mid-stream change at some point (mine is several years old now).

    I've accidentally removed the ribbon cable from the blu-Ray drive and can not seem to figure out how to reconnect it. Can anyone help?

    OneIfByLand - Ответить

    Take the top off the drive, connect the ribbon to the motherboard then replace the drive sliding the ribbon through the slot on the bottom of the drive and reconnect to the laser.

    If the screw has a pin in the center, that means it is a security Torx meant to prevent tampering. To remove this screw, follow the guide I have linked below...

    Or some hobby stores or places that sell tools will sometimes carry these.

    Question: if a screw doesn't come out, what do you recommend, without potentially damaging the system, inside and out?

    kramiz2488 - Ответить

    It seems these can be quite tight, but they did come loose with someextra force in my case. They did that thing where it makes cracking sounds, but nothing really breaks. They're just really tight in there. - I just wouldn't recommend taking these out too often.

    The screwdrivers on the guide didn't work mine just don't come out any tips model is slim CECH 2001A

    These screws work as a ground pass through between the motherboard shields and the power supply. My cousin took his PS3 to a repair shop to replace the power supply, they didn’t put the screws back in after that and the PS was shutting down suddenly (no light green or red), put a couple of new screws and it’s being working fine since

    It seems it kind of ends for me here. I can only lift the left side about an inch and then the right side stays down like it’s stuck to something underneath. It feels like I’m bending something. Could something have melted underneath?… It's really stuck, I can't get it to come loose. And I can't see much shining a light into it either. - Any tips?…

    Michael Hendriks - Ответить

    Did you undo the screws?

    Phoenix Jameson -

    I had the same issue but was able to get it off. The right side (as per the above picture) has two long column like sections that actually goes into the machine. Took me a bit of wiggling and some brute force.

    Ivan Amaro - Ответить

    You just lift the whole power supply up. There’s no need to start from the left? Is it possible to bend the two metal posts if lifting from the left?

    Ken - Ответить

    Needs medium flat screw driver as wedge to help to lift the power supply in the right side or exert more force in your right arm provided the front of PS3 is at your front.

    Um, I translated the guide from French to English and the name of the guide was “Food” and the description said “This guide shows you how to replace your diet” The translation is incorrect just to let you know!

    electrickid620 - Ответить

    Hi! Thanks for you attention! But no worries, the French word “alimentation” means power, food or diet depending the context.

    My PS3 is dusty on the inside should I clean it with something? What should I use to clean it? So far I’m just removing the dust bunnies with my hands, and wiping the dust off with my fingers.
