    Fucking ps3 didnt last a few months >:C

    Ok, so I got a new 250gb PS3 about a week or so after christmas.

    Its the newer model, and is quite different to the tutorials on the web that fit only the old model:


    anyways, my brother watched lost with his netflix cd last night, then played a bit of COD4, and it worked just fine. This evening, I was tired after a long day, and decided to play some cod. Everything was plugged in just fine, and it was on standby mode, with the red light. I turned it on, and it started out normal, with a green light, then just shut off. I understand this happens with older models, but a red light flashes, but this time it just shuts off.

    I removed the hard drive, but it still didnt work. I dont want to remove the warrenty to open it up though. I would also like to try some methods you guys might know before I send it off for months to wait before lazy fat fucks look at it and go "RAGE SEND FUCKING NEW ONE" and i lose all my data.

    Currently in the system is the netflix cd.

    Suggestions? Help?

    Could it possibly be a problem with the cd? If so, it is impossible for me to get it out manually without breaking the warrenty.

    How long does it work until it shuts off? Maybe you have enough time to quickly copy all of your saved data :P

    Actually, The hard drive is removable without even taking the back off. It only turns on for about a second though.

    E:
    Also, God, I see how it is. im level 54 in cod4, and he didnt want me to get prestige so he zapped my ps3 :C

    Maybe it has something to do with the update that the playstation company did, it erased game save files mostly but I guess it's possible.

    if it's in within the first couple of months, you're ps3 is a d-bag and you need to call support.
    then probably ship it, it's more common with newer slim models than older for this shit to happen, but still very rare.

    Pretty sure you did,
    Your brother just happened to wipe your ps3, that's hardly taking care of it.
