I gotta say, this is a sucky reason to have my first actual post on the forum. Though, I'm not too bummed. If I can't get it repaired, or get a new one with backwards compatability, I'll just have to pick up a new PS2 aswell.
This isn't that big of a blow to me, mainly because my PS3 started acting up (Shutting off randomly) a few days ago. The second time this happened the system felt hot but I knew it shutting off at that temperature wasn't normal, so I followed my gut and backed up my data onto my external hard drive. 3 or 4 days later (About an hour ago), it won't turn on. After checking it a few minutes later, it blinks a yellow light and all I can say is, "Well...F--"
Just hope I can sort this all out without data loss mainly.
IT WORKS. I SAT AND WATCHED MY COUSIN FIX HIS PS3. HE DID THE HEATGUN AND COMPUND TRICK AND IT WORKS. JUST TYPE "YLOD FIX" IN YOUTUBE AND ITS THERE TO SHOW YOU HOW TO FIX IT.
Tell 'em cuz! That was a process I never want to do again; it litterally took hours to do everything carefully.
Edit: you really need to take off caps lock. Use the SHIFT key instead.

Sending it back today to former 'Circuit City' because I have a protection plan on it. So I'll be getting a refund instead.
But my copy of MGS4 is stuck inside, hopefully they'll be kind enough to send it back .
The YLOD struck last night! Allready sorted out a replacement with Sony. Cost me £145 because it was outside warrantee but i'll be getting the orginal 60G model so I'm happy with that. Its being delivered this tuesday which is quicker than I expected. I've dealt with other companies that wouldnt offer anything lke this kind of service.

kudos for perfectly formatted entry
It seems like my ps3 is one of the first MGS4 bunbles to die....also im under warrany of best buy. And there is ONLY 4 ways not 3 ways to get you ps3 fixed. 4 is you got the warranty from the store, and 3 would be only if you dont got it.
