    Problem

    I was playing an game online, bring the opening kickoff back...screen goes black....PS3 light goes to a blinking red....I touch the pad and it goes solid red, touch it again, it turns green like start up...then yellow, back to blinking red...NCAA 11 is stuck in there, Cimmy...is out of commission.

    Unplug it overnight, try again in morning, see what it does.

    I've read some things on how to fix it, but it seems temporary. Some say to leave it alone for awhile and it cools down, that it was an overheating thing...I had it on for about an hour and a half...I've definitely stretched it longer than that. I can't afford a new one A, but it's probably going to come down to me buying a new one...just would like to get it to work long enough for the disc to eject. Even if it just turns on and I can exchange it at Gamestop...

    you want a new one anyways, the slim one is the shizzz..

    just leave it unplugged over night or for a few hours and hook it up and hit ejection instead of the power...

    I told you your ps3 was ready to go to the upper room. Mine died while playing bioshock 3, out of no where i paused it for 2 mins left the room and it was off permenantly but sony is pretty quick about replacing it but if your warrenty is up sell it to gamestop for $200 and put down the extra 100 for the slim

    I did that last night the slim line is pretty nice. I had seen this enough times to make the move.

    The hundred bucks sucked but the new machine doesnt.
