I had a red ring with my first PS3. I opened it up and putit in hot water like you're supposed to. Then I vacuumed it. But I didn't cover it with magnets first, so the little pieces inside went into the vacuum cleaner. I had to buy a new one. :(

I'm glad you got previous experience with it and I'll be careful but can you help me with this?
I'm trying to open up the 3.5" floppy disc drive to wipe it with baby wipes but I don't have the correct size screwdriver, do you think a claw hammer will be ok instead? --- Buy a PC so you can have tomorrow's technology with yesterday's games, today!

i just wanna mention that i love this board, it has definitely brightened my day. also, instead of using the hot water, you could alternately use an entire bottle of rubbing alcohol, just be sure to have the system on, as the fans help it dry faster. --- PSN - jcris87 Dragon's Dogma Pawn - Ophelia

I had to break it open by driving over the casing. I wish I had a claw hammer or screwdriver to have been able to open the drive. What I did have though was a ball-peen hammer to nail it shut again though. Sticky tape also seems to work.

be sure to use some of Elmer's Glue along with that sticky tape, you wanna make sure it stays closed. --- If you're a female shut-in, people reach out to you and you're thought of as cute and shy, but if you're a guy shut-in you're basically f***ed.
