Whitey248 = Dec 06 = 60GB = June 09

 

 

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.

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 .

 


 

So here's the update on my problem, forgot to write back .
So I sent it back to CC took it back with no prob, got a refund!! Happy for that, so used that money for the new 80gb. Got it 4/28/09.
That protection plan was great to have, didn't have to dish out a $160 on it. Sadly my MGS4 did not make it through this .
That was an April 1st to remember...

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.

Kamiler - Bought on June 13th 2008 - Metal Gear Solid 4: 80 GIG model - Died on June 20 2009. 

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.
