I'm not going to repair it just for it to die again.
I'm just going to take it apart, get the disc out, bin the console and then buy a Slim.
That's why I suggested the hairdryer trick. Cover all the vents, put it in a box and blow a hairdryer into the vents which temporarily heats up, and reseats the chips hopfully making the console work for a matter of minutes/hours while you get the disc out, deactivate the console or even make a quick back up (not always guaranteed though).

Yeah the 6 month limit doesn't really matter anyway unless you activate 5 PS3s after you last deactivated them all. Then if one of those 5 broke and was replaced, you wouldn't be able to activate it for another 6 months... not many people have 5 PS3s though lol...
Re-read T&C your only allowed 2 active PS3s at one time now on your PSN ID. If you whipe the activations Via the Site you can only re-activate 2 PS3s.
No you're mistaken. You're allowed 5 active but only 2 for content released post November 2011 (which is where the new policy was instated) you can still have the content released prior to November 2011 on 5 active Playstation 3s.
I've whiped and since reactivated 5 PS3s no problem. The 2 activation thing only applies to content released after November 2011, and it takes your first two of 5 activations as those 2, then the remaining 3 PS3s can't activate any content except the stuff released before November 2011.
They can't legally retroactively apply terms and conditions to content consumers have already purchased. As in, content prior to Nov 2011 was sold under the premise that it could be activated on 5 Playstation 3 systems, a withdrawal of that would be on shaky legal grounds.

indeed all content got before the T&C's were changed can still be kept working on 5 Ps3's
But any content after can't.
with 3 Ps3's in my house I like to buy content on my account for my kids and now I can't do that as it mean having to constantly deativate a console to use any new downloads between the three console which is stupid I should not have to do this.
I am not putting cash on a childs account for them to spend all things bought are through my acount which makes it very hard to give them the stuff they need if we are all playing the same game togther LBP, LBP2 modnation racers to name a few on different consoles, it mean one of them has to go with out.
It needs to be sorted.
