I have had this system for about 2 years its 60 GB system and its never given me any problems until last night.it sit on the floor and has a fan attached to the bottom to cool it down when on.
Ok I got home turned on the system and it worked but Call of duty 4 (the game stuck in there )started giving me some problems so i turned it off and turned it back on and then it happend the light went to red green yellow and then a blinking red.I turned it off and on a few times and but it didnt work so i took out the hard drive like sony instructs and cleaned it blew out all the dust.it still didnt work we called sony today they said they would fix it send us a refund for the game thats stuck inside the system and send us a box to send it to them but they said they would’nt be able to transfer or save any data.so if any out there had the same problem and fix it or if you know how to fix it or some place that can fix it then please tell me on any information you know on the questions below or anything they can help?!
1.What exactly causes it what is the problem is it over heating is it a problem with the game is it the hard drive?
2.Would it be possible to place the Hard drive from the nonworking PS3 into a working PS3 to backup the data on a USB drive?would the hard drive mess up the working PS3?
3.Is it possible to have somebody or sony backup the hard drive using the hard drive by itself and transfering the data to another hard drive?is this possible?
PLEASE ANSWER NUMBER 2 IF POSSIBLE AND THE REST!
THANK YOU IF YOU HELP IN ANYWAY!!
