ok then, i've got a 60gb Ps3, had it now just under 2 years, was bought 7.3.07, last night it gave up the ghost. I turn it on and, the usual green light comes on, it then goes yellow, beeps 3 times and then goes onto a red flashing light.
After messing about with it abit trying to get it to work it wouldnt so i went fishing on the internet to try find abit of research, and it turns out its a common-ish fault on the old 60gb ps1,ps2 compatable playstations where it keeps over heating untill the motherboard cant hope and just gives in.
I rang up playstation uk and told them the situation and they want £140 just to come, take it off me and give me a re-conditioned one!!!! eventhough i paid over £400 for it not 2 years ago. i find this utter discusting, i ranted and raged asmuch as i could but they wouldnt give in.
i feel really pissed off any annoyed at this and let down by sony, eventhough theres loads of people writing in about it everywhere, loads of clips on youtube, loads of threads on ps3 forums they dont care. totally pathetic, bloke i spoke to couldnt wait to get me off the phone!
but just wondering, has anyone else had this problem with their playstation?? turn it on... the fan starts up, a yellow light flashes under the power button, goes beep beep beep and then goes back to a red light that starts flashing and everything shuts down?? i've got a game stuck in it and i cannot find away to get it out and im going to end up smashing it soon i swear
