this is the most likely scenario for you guys, no room is enough room for the PS3, specially the fat ones, you have to be able to fit another at the top and that still isn't enough. Trust me i tried and tested this to see how much time till the fan got at 100% and your best bet is probably to sit her on the coffee table while you play or just put it vertically on the ground in front of the TV. Mine was in a completely open area with nothing around it. Not even in a cabinet or anything. It lasted me 3+ years... I guess it's time to buy a new one for me.
This just happened to me last night and my Black Ops game is stuck in it and I can't get it out. After doing some research and calling a local game store to fix this, it seems it's overheated. You either need to use your warranty and call Sony or get it repaired or get a new slim one.
[QUOTE="Nonstop-Madness"][QUOTE="DJCUEBALL"][QUOTE="Nonstop-Madness"] same thing happened to my 80GB. I took it apart to get my FIFA 2011 and bought a SLIM. If the eject thing doesn't work ..... you have to service it which they will give you back the game or do what I did. Was it easy to take it apart to get the disc out? Any special tools? Also, can I just use my old HDD to put into a new PS3 system so I don't lose my saves? You will need a torx 10, and a 2-1/2" Phillips. I tried putting in my old hard drive. It asks you to install the latest update with a flash drive before you can use it but it kept on giving me this error so I just used the HDD that came with the SLIM and restored it with a backup I made before my 80GB broke. Although my 80GB PS3 actually had a 500GB HDD I bought so maybe thats what caused the error. I read something about it having to do with switching the jumper on the hard drive but idk. I'll do that as soon as I get home tonight. Thank you.
Yeah. Once you get the top off and separate the bluray drive you just need to take the top off of the driver and slide the disc out. Just be careful if you want to put it back together. There are some small springs that are part of the disc loading arm that is under tension so they might pop out when you take apart the drive.
Perfect. Thank you for the help everyone. I may just toss out the system... not sure if I can sell it for anything... unless someone really wants the backwards compatibility.
[QUOTE="DJCUEBALL"]Mine's a launch 60GB. I tried the eject button while it's off and then on but did not work. I've been YouTube-ing and Googling and no recommendation is working.Nonstop-Madness

[QUOTE="hiryu3"][QUOTE="TheIndianChild"]RED light of death ? =S You mean Yellow light of death , right ? nope it goes yellow and then blinks red It goes yellow and then red and starts blinking. I don't think I have warranty because the machine is over 3 years old. I may just take it apart. Was it easy to take the disc out because I have Black Ops stuck in there and just played one multiplayer level lol
