    ya u can do recovery if ur using an HDMI cable instead of RGB cable or whatever its called (RED WHITE YELLOW CABLES) or vise versa hold down the power when its shut off and keep holding until u hear 1 BEEP then let go scroll through your sources in your tv and you got it if its another problem respond back to both of us Loutie:

    Recovery mode will not come up on the screen either and I have tried every cable that is compatible with the ps3.

    I think then your problem is that you need to reflow the cpu and gpu, add new thermal compound, and a new fan will help too. I've had that happen before as well. It is a somewhat easy fix.

    well as youve got a bricked system you could try the downgrade its sed to not work but you might aswell try it look here

    download the files here:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step 1.) Download the files needed above.

    Step 2.) Format a USB device to fat32. Make sure their is nothing on the USB device, or this will not work. Extract the lv2 file from folder 1, and place it on your USB device along with the Firmware you chose.

    Step 3.) Insert your USB device into the Right-Most USB port on your PS3. (Closest to the Disc Reader.) Turn your PS3 on, and your screen will be black. Wait for a little bit, and your PS3 will turn itself off. If it fails to turn off within 25 minutes, turn it off manually.

    Step 4.) Turn your PS3 back on, and you'll see the recovery menu. Once you know you see the recovery menu, go ahead and turn your PS3 off. Now, unplug the USB device from the PS3, and insert it into the USB port onto your PC. Erase everything off of your USB. Extract the lv2 file from folder 2 and place it on your root of your USB device.

    Step 5.) Insert your USB device back into the Right-Most USB port. Now, turn your PS3 on, it will be unbricked with the firmware you chose to put on the USB drive in step 3.



    Good luck.



    let us know wether it works

    This person needs to:

    A. Reflow the CPU and GPU back to the motherboard (there are tons of youtube video tutorials to do this)

    B. Add a new thermal compound to both CPU and GPU (I prefer Artic Silver 5 when I fix YLOD's)

    C. Add a new fan. I highly recommend purchasing a Talismoon Whisper fan for ps3. You can get one off Amazon.

    D. Clean out all the dust from inside the ps3

    This will fix most YLOD's and such. I've done this to a few consoles in the past that haven't YLOD again. One I did nearly a year ago is still working perfectly.
