Ok, Like alot of other people on here, I have started getting error 80010017 when trying to play Bluray Games on my PS3, another symptom is freezing when playing Bluray Movies.
These are the troubleshooting steps I have taken so far.
1) Changed HD , reformated and reinstalled OS 3.15
2) Restored setttings via recovery menu
3) Deactivated and Activated console on PSN Managment section
4) Replaced Bluray Laser 410ACA and also replaced cradle that holds Bluray Laser just to be safe - tested this laser in another machine and it works great.
5) Replaced Ribbon cable leading Bluray Player to Motherboard
6) Cleaned bluray lens with IPA
7) Reflowed and Refluxed Blurray Controller board part number BMD-003
So far nothing has made a difference, so all I can image is that it is an issue with an IC chip on the controller board that is afffected power or data flow, or a burnt out capacitor on the board.
My next step would be to remove the NAND chip and resolder to a new BMD-003 Blueray controller board, but I dont want to shell out for a Blurray Controller board if someone else has found a fix for this.
So, if anyone has any suggestions or have resolved this issue on thier own, Please please please comment and let me know.
Thanks in Advance.
I removed the BGA NAND chip from my old Blurray controller board, and transfered it to a new Blur ray controller Board, Part number BMD-003 and it worked.
After weeks of attempting everything I finally narrowed the issue to a Compnent on the controller board. I figure its probably a power issue that is caused by fault resistor or capacitor but swapping the NAND chip transfers the Firmware Key that matches the Motherboard, this authenticated the hardware and allows the games access to the cell procecessor.
The solder is quite difficult as it is a 64 point BGA chip, I used flux solder paste and a solder braid to remove old solder. but it was worth it in the end.
Parts $50 NZD + 20 Hours = Working playstation
Thanks but you obviously didn't read my thread correctly. I have already tried that solution and it didn't fix it. Reading is your friend.
You're right. I didn't bother to read exactly what steps they did in the link I provided, but I did read it enough to see that several people found that "fix" to work for them.
There are other "fixes" posted around too (google), but I personally don't feel like doing research for your problem any more than I did when you can easily do the same.
If all else fails, call Sony. That's what their tech support is for. They're paid to know more than we do and if they don't, they're supposed to take your PS3 in and fix, repair, replace it for you.
Got the YLOD? You're not alone, but I can help.
I have researched this on the web for weeks, and have found no solution that works. Hence the reason why I am posting it on here.
If you dont have any constructive information or suggestions besides " Search is your friend " and links to website which suggest a fix that if you had read my post, would realise that I have already attempted and didn't work.
Please dont post just for the sake of posting. Its a waste of both yours and my time.
As for calling sony, I have called them and they dont have a clue and want me to pay $375 for them to repair it. Which obviously I dont want to pay, if I can find a solution myself.
For anyone else, please feel free to make suggestions.
Try and system check:
- turn the PS3 on and hold the button till you here 3 beeps then release
- and press and hold again till it beeps once more (make sure you have your PS3 controller PLUGGED in)
- when the restore options come up, select #3 to check for disk errors; your PS3 might have some errors on the dissk that need to be fixed
*this method fixed my problem!*
