    Help think I just lost my bestfriend :(

    When my PS3 was on standby, I press the power button for it to turn on, it flashes green for about 0.50 seconds then just cuts off.(No light at all)

    So I unplug it then re-plug it and the same thing happens

    I tried every (Sony)reset trick in the book I get nothing. Anyway to fix this without opening up the console and/ or sending to Sony?



    ... My PS3 is dead and I have to send it to Sony don't I? They say it's $100 to get it fixed, I could've sworn it used to be $80.

    Thanks in advanced everyone.

    Those symptoms sound serious.. If you have tried every method than I can't really recommend anything else other than get it fixed by, Sony.

    really ask if they'll "fix" it or send a refurbished one (meaning a PS3 built from already used components but not your hard drive or any of the original one)

    Depends what model you have. Here in the States, Sony has/had a "program" where if you had a 60GB launch model, you could mail it in and get a 120GB Slim back for only $100 or something. They told me to fix the launch model would cost $200 or something.

    This was early 2012, mind you. No idea if they're doing the same thing.

    Yes, your PS3 is dead. Sounds like YLOD.

    Misleading thread!!

    PS3's are dropping price nearly every month! with sales popping up now & again I think you could pick another 1 up for new at least 150.

    There are not many chucky versions around now that work many have suffered from YOLD but this maybe the reason.
