ps.
I also tried to "Cook" the chips on the motherboard like the video shows with zero success.
These are BGA chips so you have a slim chance of getting it right.

A quick check tonight reveals that the BD has an on-board controller card. This connects directly to the mother board.
I changed out the entire unit, which includes cables, Controller board, and BD.
That means there is somethin with the Motherboard.
Although, there are no error codes at all.

got into the same problem as yours, and had it with two of my consoles, second time instead of sending it for repair, I was ready to repair it myself, and bought the Sony PS3 self repair guide with video, was a wise desicion, have fixed several  small problems! which are very common! as I read on forums! I would highly recommend to try it at home if you are not affraid of warranty and fix it yourself!

Hope this is helpful!

My 60GBps3 unexepectely turned off last night and when i tried turning it on again the light went green and after a few seconds the light turned oranged and did 3 beeps and the light started blinking red untill i press the on/off button again then it turns to a solid red light. i have tried turning it on several times and the same thig keeps happening. I have not yet opened up my ps3 in fear that the problem will become worse. i got my ps3 in early 2007 so my warenty is long gone.

is their a solution to this problem?

is the ofline data on my ps3 still salvageable?
