    Hey what's the pin layout of that voltage regulator? Is it Standart with ground in the middle?
    Wiring doesn't make sense for me.

    az-shabrani,

    A friend from here has a complaint about green-blue was not blinking, his name is mdgame360.

    He later found the way of run, you can try him config settings. Please change with yours, maybe it can work for you too:

    I still don't know the pin layout of the voltage regulator. Does it even do anything if it's connected like it is in the video.

    all regulators with 3 legs are connected like this...

    https://www.google.fr/search?q=7586...=0CAcQ_AUoAg#hl=fr&tbm=isch&q=regulator+3+pin

    (+)input (-)ground (+)output

    he use the first and second "leg" for soldering the ground wire...it's right??

    (-)ground input (-)ground output (not connected)

    in this way voltage is lowered

    Is a good alternative, but there are some things to be clarify. I know that khalkedon has a lot of reputation in the scene but...
    I'm curious, why the video show te date 7/1 (July First). and I can't confirm the OFW in the console.
    The solution will work, but I still have my doubts. Why the ground cable is solder into the input and groud pins from the regulator?, If the need is to regulate the voltage, I suppous the Voltage cable 5.5v have to be solder in the input pin (left one), ground cable in the middle and output cable 3.3v to the third pin (right one) and connected to the switch. Another thing, the 7586 regulator is so hard to be found on any electronic store, can you ask to the seller the codes for the alternative regulator? maybe another more generic.
    Thanks.

    Firstly thanks your beautiful words...

    I couldn't understand "7/1 (July First)" please explain me? Generally I don't show the firmware of the console, there is no any special reason. I forget or no need to show it. But you are right people wonder it. I'm going to add an information starting of video now ;)

    You asked: Why the ground cable is solder into the input and groud pins from the regulator?
    Answer: I don't know, I'm not a graduate of the electrical section school. I only follow the offers from my electric tool supplier, I explain my trouble and they give me the what I need.

    You asked: I suppous the Voltage cable 5.5v have to be solder in the input pin (left one), ground cable in the middle and output cable 3.3v to the third pin (right one) and connected to the switch.
    Answer: My English is not enough to understand somethings, sorry I couldn't understand you.

    You asked: the 7586 regulator is so hard to be found on any electronic store, can you ask to the seller the codes for the alternative regulator? maybe another more generic.
    Answer: Ofcourse you can use an another voltage regulator, I explained my trouble and then they gave me 7586. Even no need to use voltage regulator but it may give harm in the future to gears of blu-ray rom.

    EDIT:
    Added info on to youtube video

    In the TV screen, when you turn on the PS3 and load the system, the date is 7/1 1:00.
    By the way, thanks for update the video. I will try to find the Regulator. If I know anything which works, I'll put de code here
    Thanks khalkedon
