    PS3 YLOD...what now?

    So here's the gist...I have one of the PS3 Fats, the 60gb. Back when I first bought it it was 600 bucks. Anyhoo many a month went by and it was a loyal piece of entertainment hardware...until a little bit before the summer of this year, I'd say May. One day my PS3 wasn't reading any discs...I tried blu rays dvds from different studios, various video games nothing worked. Prior to this I noticed my PS3 didn't read all blu ray discs, notably Paramount for some reason. Anyway I took it to a local repair guy and I needed a new laser. 100 bucks later he fixed I took it home...nothing happened, still not reading. I took it back and he told me the laser was defective so he put in a new one free of charge. After that things were fine, no complaints, pretty much the whole summer. Then I'd say early September I was playing Darksiders 2, my PS3 was getting heavy use because I was really into the game and from what I can surmise nearing the end. I played maybe an hour and a half then all of a sudden mid playing it just shut off...the only indication of something wrong was a red blinking light on the console. So I went back to the guy who fixed it before...told me he could fix it for 45 dollars. He did and in the process he had to replace the laser a 3rd time which was odd...so he fixed it I took it home...I didn't play a game or video but I did wacth netflix...no problems..didnt shut off or anything things seemed fine. Then I tried playing a game and I discovered it wouldn't take my discs again...I told him this and I think he decided to get out and offered me a refund...in my stupidity though I tried shoving my Darksider 2 game inside so now its stuck in there and little after that it YLOD again. So now it seems my option is to buy a new PS3...is there a way to sell my old one for cash? Also is there a way to get my data off my old PS3? I really don't want to start Darksiders over again

    Most Game Stops will offer you a trade in to buy a new system. I also had one of those old PS3 Fats. Mine stopped reading blu ray and PS3 games. I traded it in for the PS3 slim and they WOULD have given me $120 in trade in (I'd wait for them to advertise this special before going in) however because it was broken they had to ship it to their facility in Texas for fixing/refurbishing. The cost of that was $35 dollars so I only got $85 back towards the new PS3. I also was informed about a video game store in my area that would replace the laser for $100 dollars but figured that for me the best course was to go this route.

    The older PS3's the one mainly with 4 USB drives and SD card media slots are likely to Yellow Light on you. I am not sure about the data, that's why I usually put all my data on my USB but I know that most games restrict you copying it and Plus members are able to save all game data and saves to a cloud. Sorry to hear you got it.

    So an update...I took it back to the guy...he was going to give me a refund, and get the game out. Strangely enough once he did, put back together I decided what the hell hook it up and see what happens...it turns on, no YLOD, accepts discs like normal, and reads them as well. Soooooo Idk what know should i be happy that its working or abandon ship and upgrade to a Slim? For me the only thing the Fat has going for it is the backwards compatibility but i dont play my PS2 games often and I can always find a cheap, used PS2...hell I think I still have my old one

    Well you can take it to Gamestop and they will try it out, if it's working they will accept it. Don't mention to them about it getting Yellow Light and you will get whatever they want for it. Get yourself a slim if you need to play PS2 games get a PS2 slim, I have my PS2 still working its the fat PS2 too still working and functioning. They have a 500GB PS3 for like $299 which is a good deal since I paid like $350 for a 320GB Uncharted bundle.
