UH-OH! 

 

probably your bluray laser has died or out of allienment  , 3 options

1 )buy a new bluray laser for your model and fit it yourself(or someone else with some tech savvy) / fiddle about with your current laser and see if its just been put out of place

2 ) pay 130 to sony for a refurb 

3) if in warranty take it back to place of purchase for a replacement

Out of curiosity...What model? How much do you use it? Is it well ventilated? 

 

Just questions so I can build up a mental picture of what problems people have with their ps3's and how to prevent them.

 

Ihave an 80gb which for the most part seem to be OK so far...But I know the YLOD day is looming :-/

Is it a PS3 FAT? If so you should've been aware of this to happen.

 

Trade in for a PS3 Slim would've been ideal but now's impossible because the Blu-ray Player's broken.
