Gopher mods is defs they site to use.. had my psp fixed in a week… cheaper then sony for sure
HAHHA this is awesome…. my 80 gb(pre ps2 removal) just dided recently….. it was having a crap tons of problems locking up on the internet and needeing to be restarted.
see i got home and had DLed angry video game nerd stuff to watch on my external. and it was like a 10 min video. we got about 5 and it jsut crapped. and wouldn't turn on. tried cleaning it out with a vacum and then we had no power to it for 24 hrs and tried, and then took out HD to see if it wld work. no….
got a new one havent decided if i am gonan send it back or not
I would say there is now a number of electronic repair shops that can fix a broken PS3. I found some local people that do it on craigslist. Now depending on the console, always consider it a temp fix. Sometimes the fix will last a year, sometimes only 3 months, but at least by paying a repair shop $60-70 you can get your original system working. You will get your game back also. I would then get a new slim model then, transfer your save data over to the new system and either sell it on ebay or tradein to Gamestop.
i know it sucks…. i'll probably try and get it repaired some where around here. when i boguth my 360 at walmart in my area the guy told me that is wnything happens it they send it to a guy in town…. i might try and see if i can get a hold of that place and see if they can take care of it. it sucks caz my robot chicken season 4 disk 1 was in it when it died.
sicne i got a new slim almost all the time when i am done with a game, i try to get into the habbit of edjecting it. unline the ps2 whcih you could stcik a fine point in and eject the drawer this you cant. it kinda sucks. but at least i back up all my stuff when the apployclPS3 happned back in jan.so i didn't loose TOOO much thank god. an external was the best thing i got for it.
ive got a great place in san diego if anyone needs the info let me know
Well my 80gig first-gen died on my 2 days ago, I just fixed it myself this morning for a grand total of 7.50$ for good thermal paste and two hours of my time.
For all you skeptics on the heatgun repair, it works pretty darn well. I haven't lost all my data and machine and didn't have to pay sony 150$ :))
I fixed a TV once for $11. Two blown capacitors. THat's it. Just replaced them with new ones and it's as good as new.
I would like to post a note of wisdom, something i have done recently. The 60gb, 40gb, 20gb, and some 80gbs, are worth quite a bit more than the slim models brand new. after having my 60gb since launch i decided, well…it's getting pretty old and it's gonna crap out soon, so why not sell it. I sold it on craigslist for $350 and then met the guy at Hastings (game store) and swapped with him for cash, turned around went in the door and bought a slim model. I did not use mine for backwards compatible so this was genious because there are tons of people who would kill for BC. and i've heard rumor's that BC is coming back to PS3 so, in a word of advice…sell sell sell!!! and then buy buy buy :D you will get a brand new slim system, and another warranty :D
