see youve lost all credibility in these statements as niether are true. As it is not as simple to fix a blue ray drive on a PS3 by just swapping it for a new one, theres more to it than that, so i think one should keep his opinions to ones self if you have nothing nice to say or i could embarrass you with how little you know about it

dont think just because youve read one post ive made about fixing ps3's and i know it all, i spent 12 months working in a friends pc/console shop fixing sony consoles, and have lost count of how many i have fixed so my knowledge is pretty extensive.

I've only fixed one 360 so I don't have a lot of knowledge, and it was my own but it was successful so I guess I was lucky.

I read around and found a trick involving taking the x-clamp off the gpu and literally screwing it down. Took everything apart, polished up the heatsinks and applied new thermal paste. Had to drill larger holes into the metal tray first so the M5 screws I borrowed from work would fit. To play it safe I did the same to the CPU heatsink as well.
Nylon washers are essential too to avoid anything shorting out or a static shock killing the machine but much to my surprise after a little bit of experimenting it all worked.
That was around 6 months ago and I sold it the other day to a mate. Still going just fine.

Here's a good tutorial for the RROD fix:

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair...-clamp_fix.htm

Most common.

There's tons of guides online for XBOX360 errors. I can't find the sight right now, but there's a very good one that goes over almost every problem the XBOX might have.

Basically, there's a design flaw in the mobo mount design and these fixes are designed to stop the MB from flexing and breaking the GPU solder points. The fixes include A. Xclamp fix and/or fixing the mobo mount and B. heating up the MB and resoldering the GPU contact points.

Some people even get reflow stations that are designed to resolder the whole GPU chip or something. I don't know anything about these but considering you're considering doing this full time, it might be an idea.

Hey all, this is my first post on Overclock. My problem is with the PS3 graphics.

To start off, I was playing COD 4 online, and I wanted better graphics on my brother HD TV, so I finished the match and I quit the game to the main console menu. I changed the HDMI settings to the maximum they could go up to. It didn't work, so I went down a level and it worked for a bit, but the console now does not turn on the graphics at all.

Is there a way to fix this... I was playing on my brother PS3, and he's kinda f&$ked off at the moment.

Thanks in advanced for the help.

To reset your graphics settings turn off the PS3, then hold your finger on the power (button?) thing for 5 seconds or so, and all your graphics will be down at the normal 480p or whatever it goes to and you can work from there.

And try making your own thread next time.

^What he said.

When I count, I have to count a pretty slow 5 seconds, it seems like it's really about 7 seconds. But you get the idea. It will beep a couple times when you do it. Then it should reset and then you can change it to the ideal video settings. The console should sense the settings for you.

You can't just change the settings to the highest unless you have a 1080p TV, by the way. You have to have it at a resolution and all that your TV can support.
