We've seen countless posts here at Destructoid regarding broken Xbox 360's, mainly due to the infamous RRoD. Well it's time to switch gears here folks. Today, I bring you very sad news. My 60 GB PS3 bit the dust today...
It happened as I was cleaning my apartment this afternoon. I was listening to music being streamed to my PS3 from my computer to help me stay motivated. While scrubbing the bathroom sink, the music suddenly stopped and I heard my PS3 make 3 quick beeps indicating it had reset itself. When I came to my living room to check on it, the red power light was flashing.
I tried powering it back on again. The power light turns green, then briefly yellow, then back to the red flashing light. I've tried several remedies suggested on forums including taking out the hard drive, trying a different power outlet, etc., but to no avail.
Has anything like this happened to you guys? I did recently just upgrade my hard drive, but I made sure to get a 5400 rpm drive in case a 7200 rpm ran too hot. Apparently a red flashing light can indicate overheating, but at the time my PS3 bricked, it wasn't hot at all. Any advice would be appreciated, but I've already filled out the repair form to get this thing fixed.
In the meantime, please pour some of that 40 you're drinking for our fallen comrade. I'll be back online as soon as possible to roll with the DTOID PS3 crew. I'll miss you guys! (except Yojimbo) read
