OK, so I'm sitting in my basement playing some Fallout 3 when my PS3 randomly shuts itself off, leaving a blinking red light instead of the normal green and blue. I tried turning it on and off by both the touch sensitive power on the front and the main power supply on the back and no luck. I've searched google and found too many answers to be sure of what to rely on, other than that they all say the PS3 is "dead". Some have said that removing the hard drive might
work, while others recommend sending it to some random people to have them fix the problem.
My system is one of the orignal 60 gb, BC models, so I would hate to have to buy a new system that does not have BC. I am not so much worried about losing my data, as I could honestly care less about the trophies and playing through my games again would save me some money from not having to buy anything new. If anyone has experienced this same problem and gotten it fixed themselves, I would greatly appreciate if they could fill me in.
