I'm sorry to say that this guide didn't work for me. First, my PlayStation is different from the one they show. It is not slim, but it is different. I think mine is older. I has to watch different videos on how to dismantle the console. I did all the thermal paste and pads as this guide said. Put it together and....it actually got worse. Now, when I press the button to start it gets green then immediately it turns red with just one beep and turns off... I won't try it again. I wasted $40 and a couple of hours of my time. Next time I'll just get another used console...
