I downloaded a game demo 2 days ago and in the midst of starting the game the console shuts off and flashes red lights. I tried turn it on, it flashes green for a second then come the flashing red with 3 beeps. Some people say this is not the YLOD, but I really don't know. Couldn't take the hdd out either since the blue screw is rusted and no screwdriver will do the work.

It's a launch ps3 too..

yea i never heard of this one either. if it was the YLOD you will actually see a Yellow light where the red and green lights appear

is it a typo for busted, perhaps?

i would say it may be on the verge of dying, it is pretty old. just unhook everything, clean all the dust off and try to clean the vents the best you can. let it rest a bit and then start it up again

the inside of the blue screw is rusted, so when I use the screwdriver it won't fit inside at all.
