PS3 Super Slim will not turn on, no lights

My Red God of War PS3 Super Slim will no longer turn on. I recently moved and finally pulled it out of the box. It turned on briefly and then immediately shut off. I troubleshot the system and determined the power supply was dead. I ordered a new power supply, installed it, and the console turned on briefly and shut off again. I took the entire thing apart and put it back together again thinking maybe there was a short somewhere. It still will not turn on and no lights come on on the front. Is the motherboard dead?

The system board ended up being dead. I bought a new PS3 and just moved the hard drive over.

Hey I know this is more than a year old but I thought I’d ask in hopes you could answer. You mention that your PS3 was dead and you just moved the hard drive over. I thought you couldn’t transfer hard drives on these systems because they’re specifically linked to the system itself. How did you manage to move your hard drive over without losing all your data?
