    Yeah. I was in the middle of a Socom game and it just shut off on me. It was shutting off on me yesterday while I was playing Ghostbusters. But I thought it might have just been a glitch with Ghostbusters. Now it won't come back on period. I'm about to call Sony up and see if it's under warranty. If not I might try to sell it back to Gamestop.

    :hug: Sucks, man.

    As far as I know there is no fix other than to send it to Sony who charge about $150 to fix it.

    I read of people using a blow dryer on the GPU to get it going again but that's just as bad as the "RROD fixes" I have read:rofl:

    How is the warranty after wards though? Is it for 1 year after I receive the PS3 back or am I just fucked again if it breaks?

    gay, I'd rather sell this one broke and get a brand new one with a 1 year warranty. even though I'd be giving up my 60 GB. Is there a way to delete the HDD without being able to turn it on haha?

    Don't really want a refurb model back. I just went ahead and got a new 80GB and sold the YLOD one. Didn't get shit for it though, picked a game and a new bluetooth headset. Oddly the 60GB isn't that big of a deal to me anymore I haven't/don't plan on playing anymore PS2/PSone games.
