I'd have to get a new one.  It is not only my gaming console but my wife and I use it for almost all our viewing with netflix, you tube, ps store.  She'd be at almost a loss as I would be. ( I planned that carefully)

well considering thats already happened to me 4 times, i would pick option Z and call Sony and have them fix/replace it. although this time around id probably just buy a new PS3.


**bleep** 4 Times? 

 

I would of been heated! 

 


yup, it was rather frustrating. even more so when the 3rd YLOD happened a week after i got the system back from Sony.

the 4th YLOD happened about a year after the 3rd and the limited warranty had expired, but the Sony person i talked to on the phone felt bad for me for having all these PS3 deaths that they comped the $160 repair fee to get it fixed. :smileyvery-happy:

my current PS3 has been kicking for a while. knock on wood.

all of them including the one i have now are 60gb fat PS3's btw.

Hat off to you for the patience. I dont have that.

 

Is yours B/C?

 

I have a 80gb no B/C and its starting to make funny noises on me I think its about that time for it.

 

I am hoping it will last till a new system drops.

yeah mines in backwards compatible.

 

and what kind of weird noises? it could be the fans, HDD or disc drive. ive noticed that the HDD and disc drive seem to make more noise than the newer systems, and the fans on the old fat PS3s are quite loud.

Not really sure... It sounds like vibration from inside the unit.

 

Not sure if its the fan or the HDD.

 

I do dust it weekly though just to be on the safe side.
