Um. Is my PS3 dead?

#1YEMbotPosted 2/24/2013 3:23:12 PM
Fired up the system, loaded an episode of Venture Bros. from my external Hard Drive. 3 minutes into the video, my playstation abruptly shuts off. Won't turn back on. I flip the switch on the back and try again, it turns on, flashes green, flashes yellow, shuts off. Keeps doing that.

Never actually SEEN a YLOD, is that what this is?

Yes. That is the dreaded YOLD. I am truly sorry.

Alright, what's the best way to get the disc out. Ni No Kuni is in there.

There is a way to turn the console on briefly. If I remember correctly you hold in the power button on front then click it on in the back? That should turn it on long enough to retrieve the disk. If not, just take top off console.

This video sums it up nicely. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfM-OPyp6yo

Is it me or more PS3 consoles have been busted recently?
Mine goes busted recently while playing Ni no Kuni too.
[My PS3 was still less than a year old.]

Mine was an 80GB BC phat, so I'm not terribly surprised. Still, sad to lose BC and 4 years of save data.
