Backing Up my PS3 without video. Help please

4 replies 1 views Edited Sep 30, 2009

Ok, so i got the yellow ring of death in like july and finally got around to trying to fix it on my own. I attempted it today and failed partially. I was able get the system to turn back on but i think i fried w/e transmits video. The audio works find and i can hear the sounds working. Now im trying to back up my data however I cannot see anything and would appreciate a step by step walk thru of how many clicks in one direction or another.

 

The system hasnt updated since mid July so the firmware is different then what my brother's is running on.

Now i know its not the cable or anything else because the same cable works fine for my brothers ps3. If anyone could help me please try. thanks

Lucky me, I memorized the whole XMB, except the Friends list.. 

What I do is make all XMB sections all to the top.

And for you, you should look at XMB pictures (up-to-date).

I don't think a backup will help anyway since you can't restore it on another console - unless sony repairs yours and sends it back ( unlikely since you voided any warranty be taking it apart ) - even if you send yours in you'll probably get a refurbished one back - you'll only lose game saves because anything you bought can be downloaded again free
