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 i didn't loose TOOO much thank god. an external was the best thing i got for it.
