Hi,
Thanks for replying.
I just had a chat with Sony and he told that the problem is that your PS3 is cracking the BGA solder under the PS3 cell and rsx processors.The solution is that you need to reflow these components .For that you need to have some soldering skills,If you want to do it yourself Please let me know I wil provide you the step by step process of how to fix it.

thanking you!
with regards!
