You should clean the dust from the inside and replace that paste on the chips...
Original 60 launch console still going strong................ kinda. Just finished second reflow, working great once again. First reflow lasted about a year. Wifes stupid dog ate the ribbon cable for my memory card reader while i had it apart though.
I was a little upset at first, well actually alot upset, now it seems pretty funny though. Not a big deal hardly ever used it anyway now that all our cameras use the new xd card or whatever it is.
