Well this evening myself and a few friends were enjoying a game of cards and a few social drinks with music coming from the PS3, after about an hour of use the PS3 sounded out a loud beep and turned off. I panic and thought straight away YLOD and i was right, i tried to turn the PS3 on and nothing a beep to green then 2 beeps to yellow.
I am in a bit of a pickle what i should do with the old 60Gb model just wondering what peoples suggestions are on the matter. I am not not sure if i should just sell all the games and call its quites on the PS3 or buy a new one. The only issue is im completely skint so it will be months before i can get my hands on a new one (unless anyone has liverpool station on the mcdonalds monopoly game ).
I have had a pretty good run of the 60Gb model i have had it since release day.
What do you guys recommend i do?
Can try and fix yourself, tons of info out there regarding this, try you tube or try try the search bar here you will find tons of info as this has been covered tons of times.
Not being nippy, just saying
It's just happend to me, original UK launch day 60gig PS3, well ventilated and well looked afrer. Only moved it once whilst I've had it to put a bigger HDD in.
Hours and hours of Skyrim and Demons souls possibily lost. Haven't done a full backup in quite a while, typical!
Will be trying the hair dryer trick later, although I don't have a hair dryer so will be using a small fan heater. Will report back on how it went.
If I can get it to boot I'll just do a full backup and buy a slim and use that instead.
