Re: red light of death

Sony should replace your 60GB with another 60GB even if its out of warranty. Chances are though you'll be waiting a while.

I'm not sure but I read somewhere when the red light flashes constantly that means its too hot. ill advice leaving it off for awhile. Unplug all the wires etc and try later if you've still got problems then ring Sony but you've got a long time to wait for another 60gb.

Re: red light of death

If it flashed red, then yellow then back to red then its broke. You can't turn it on can you?

Re: red light of death

thats the yellow light of death.

 

hard drive is fuxored (i think) and theres nothing you can do about it.

 

phone sony, they will give you a free replacement, but it will take around 6 weeks to get your game back, and there is a shortage of 60gb consoles at the moment so that could take some time too

 

Good news everyone! I've invented a device that makes you hear my voice in your head!
