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.

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

thats personal opinion, but I am inclined to agree with you.

 

however if you rarely use the memory card slots or the backward compatability then the 80gb might be a good choice as they run a lot quieter, use (slightly) less electricity and at the moment seem to be more reliable. Although my last point could just be because they are still reletively new.

any usb card reader will work in the ps3, if thats the only reason you want the 60gb then an 80gb might be the way to go.

 

sorry about your console though, im touching the trees hoping mine doesnt go down the pooper!

My 60gb broke the other day.. phoned Sony straight away and they offered me a refurbished 60gb (which i didnt want personally). So i phoned them back up today asking for an 80gb instead and they were helpful.. offered me the 80gb an plus ill get it 5 days earlier than the 60gb. I think its ridiculous that they are all breaking!! But thankfully Sony are helping a lot of people out of warrenty :)

 

Only problem is that LBP is stuck inside :(

Lol yes I turned down another 60gb. This is because I dont use the media bay and i dont need the 4 usb's. Plus id be happy to take another 20gb for freen at a sooner date.. and also I just cant be bothered with the hassel again if i where to get another 60gb and it breaks.. like a few people have said in this post.
