I know that when you send it out to have it professionally done they use a BGA rework station to do it.

O F(_)CKING DEAR, I'm really pissed off with my m8.  U see i gave him all the information and let him do, hes taken my ps3 apart before so I didn't care:smileytongue:.  But I found out the next day that he actually used a 600C heat gun, and he still cooked it for longer:smileysurprised:, his excuse was he was waiting for something to happen:smileymad:, F(_)CKING LOL:smileyvery-happy:.  Now when it would normally start, fan would spin then it would beep and the yellow light would appear, now the yellow light just appears and it beeps, no starting up.  I think I have deffinetally cooked my ps3, do you reckon I should put chilly or paprika seasoning on it?:smileyvery-happy:

I used a heat gun about 2 months ago and my PS3 is still running strong.  If done properly, there is nothing wrong with using this method.

That makes no sense at all, why would you take a heat gun to your ps3 motherboard?  i guess if it doesnt work you can just pay 150 to have it repaired if there is anything left to repair after you rip into your system.

It makes perfect sense if you have a little bit of an understanding how this stuff works.

I would never do this to my PS3, I also question the validity of the OP since random download links to this "guide" have been posted on many different threads with different user IDs appearing to belong to the same person.

hello 

i personally have only posted my guide here and on ps3hacks

 

all those other guides have been hosted and posted by people who have repaired their ps3's using my guide!!!!

 

its the only thing i ask in return for the free download and personal email support no catches is ( spread the word!)

 

the reason why there are so many copies of this thing floating around is because IT WORKS!

thankyou to all who do as i ask! lets help people help themselves!
