i have a lot of screw drivers but non of them will help, so i was looking on ebay and i found the following description for a kit:
The size of 15 kits:
5 'T' screwdrivers T5, T6, T8, T10 and T15
3 'star' screwdrivers
2 'rectangle' slotted screwdrivers
1 'triangle' screwdriver
1 'J-shape' slotted screwdriver ( 2 ~ 3 mm / 120°)
1 'U-shape' spanner ( 2.5 / 4 mm )
1 round awl ( 0.9 ~ 3 mm )
1 reset pin ( 1.2 mm )
now anybody think it will help me open my 80GB ps3? my model number is CECHK01
well im thinking about buying this one:
will this one work for me? please tell me because this is shipping from hong kong so i want to order soon
depending on what your taking apart.
Just to get the top off you need a small philips nothing fancy. A t-10 security torques bit. for the security screw. Like someone else mentioned though I just used a small flat screw driver for that 1 and never put it back in , just replaced it with a normal screw.
If your trying to get the cover off the blue ray drive your going to need a VERY small phillips I just picked up a little eyeglass repair kit at the dollar store for that.
You can completely disassemble a PS3 with just 3 tools: a regular sized philips head screwdriver, a smaller philips head screwdriver (something you would find in a eye glasses repair kit), a T-10 torx or small flat head screwdriver is a good substitute.
I can't say for sure the sizes of the points on the screwdrivers, but its the pointier head not the flat fat head.
ok i have a problem with the screw to open the ps3. unfortunately my ps3 recently got the YLOD and there is a game stuck in the system. i have tried using a t10 torx screwdriver like everyone recommends however it doesn't work. the screw appears to be deffective and i can't open the system up. i am at the point where i am ready to smash the system to get the game out. any suggestions on how to open my ps3 would be appreciated. thanks
in to get your game out turn the ps3 off by the switch. hold down the eject button while the power is compleately off and then turn it on while still holding eject. The system will send the fan into overdrive and safely eject your disc.
