PS3 FAT CECHL04 Turns off immediately after pressing the power button

I bought this non working PS3 FAT CECHL04, plugged in the cable, the red light turns on to indicate the console is off. I turn it on, the led turns green for an instant and then the console immediately turns off, the led turns off and shows no light and there’s a smell, like something just burned.

I did this a total of 3 times, with the same results. The 3rd time I also saw a tiny bit of smoke.

Should I replace the Power Supply ? what would you suggest to get the console to work?

It is like the YLOD but it not showing the light so replace the thermal paste and clean the whole thing out but be careful.


The YLOD doesn’t cause a burning odor… He probably has a short or a bad PSU.


@ultratech It burns the thermal compound and the mother board


I’ve changed the thermal paste and cleaned the inside though there was little dust.

Once everything was back in place I connected the console to the current. The red led turned on. Then I turned the console on and the led turned green for an instant before turning off completely.

So I guess I either incorrectly put the thermal paste on or The problem does not lie there.

I tested the current flow through the PSU with a multimeter and the value on the multimeter change from 1 to some number above 1.

I also noticed some imperfections (like something (some spots where something may have burnt) [image|2577609][image|2577608] on the board and I was wondering whether they have anything to do with the malfunctioning.


Try to fix it like it was the YLOD, heat gun part?
