Nah its not a faulty psu adaptor because i managed to recreate the fault and get it to boot when I hadnt touched the cable. it also does it if I knock it but not if i move it gently
I just reflowed it and its still the same.
Another thing I just found is if i press on the gpu heatsink in a certain place I hear a phhfft noise like capacators being shorted and discharged. I know that noise due to a console that I got with no washers on the rrod fix and the heatsinks were toching capacators. (not touching in this case)
I think im trying to fight two errors here and thats why it just doesnt seem consistant. just cannot understand how its gone from rock solid to this. I think the courier must have had a party with the box
And no, its not the tilt switch
