Before you belt the fuck out of it with a sledgehammer, try turning the thing off, unplugging everything that's plugged into it (including power), and then leaving it for 60 seconds. Then fire it back up again and see if the problem is fixed.

Yea ive turned it off, taken the cords out, put it in its box. Took it back off for revenge pluged it back up.
Turn it on and got the friends but like no one online. pictures nd music still missing but pfft not really worryed about them, just want people to play with

EDIT *** ok so now the light is flashing red. and making the beep noise when you turn it on constantly

It's not as dumb as it sounds. Capacitors and the like can hold a (faulty) charge even after power is disconnected - unplugging for 60 seconds is enough time for their charge to dissipate and that can fix a lot of problems.

Ummm, that's not good.

Sounds fucked mate. I have had my friends not load at all when i have turned it on but haven't had everything delete off my HDD. That's probably because i don't have much on there - only a few demo's.


Normally a quick re-boot will fix my friends but it sounds like yours is well and truly fucked now that it is beeping at you. Sounds like your ringing Sony tomorrow :( And you only just got COD4 too! :(

Just traded mine at eb for a new one, theyu didn't even check if it was working. take it in there when they are busy and they will just want to get you out the door with a new one.
Sony will want $315 to repair eb trade for $320.

Give the broken one to somone else to worry about.

did they ask for drivers licences and phone number?? if so they will probably hunt you down with debt collectors and take off your knee caps. times are tough at the moment lol. But yeah they prolly might give you a ring in the next few days. thats if they give a shit

Damm right its a fuckin peice of shit guys.
SOny say yes this is the most reliable system out, high fuckin tech, next gen all full of shit. Lasts for about a year and a half and it shits its self.
Fuckin ps3s are starting to over take xbox on faults latley, its shit. Pay 800$ for a console that dosnt evan last.

Kobe - Its not under warranty mate. Expired last year.
I dont feel like paying for anew one just to have it fuck up on me again, i do want another one but im in no rush to get it back

Do what Spil did, take it apart, take a huge dump or two in it, and send it back!!!

Yeah I know. What happened to the good old days where your gaming consoles would just work. The graphics and gameplay may be bad, but if you threw it against a wall it would still work. Now these days, they are just way to complicated.

Chiips
05-05-2009, 05:21 PM
A lot of products are purposely not made to last... that way you have to buy another one!!!!!

kobeson

everybody should make sure they get a 5 year warranty on a 2nd PS3 - don't fall into that trap again.

sneaks, mine lasted the exact same length of time, and was out of warranty - I know how u feel mate, fkn shattered...

We've had a couple of AUFer consoles die recently. Maybe if we take the details to Sony together they are more likely to consider doing the repairs as a freebie? With multiple dead consoles it becomes easier to argue that it's not a co-incidence and the problem lies with Sony.
