Replaced Thermal Paste, YLOD after second boot.
Hello all, first time question asker here. I looked through some already answered questions just to make sure but it didn't seem like there was anything exactly like my situation.
Yesterday I replaced the thermal paste on the 2 processors on my CECH-A01 PS3 to prevent any overheating issues in the future. Good thing I did it too because the thermal paste that was already there was almost completely dried and like dust. After completely reassembling my PS3 I turned it on to see the main ribbon screen but it being white. I then realized I forgot to re insert my hard drive. So I turned it off, inserted it, and turned it back on to get a yellow light, 3 beeps, and a blinking red light. I get this every time I turn the system on now.
I then disassembled my PS3 just to make sure everything was plugged in correctly and it appears to be so. I may have put a little too much thermal paste on those two processors admittedly since they were leaking off the edge slightly, I used half an arctic silver tube for each.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
