    Fuuuuuuu....

    ....ccccckkk. I think i've just killed my 60gb fatty. I was cleaning it like I have a hundred times before, giving the vents a quick vaccuum (as I have, literally DOZENS of times before), and now I have nothing. No red light, no blip, no nothing. I'm assuming it's dead, but i've seen on that it might be worth leaving it for a while and trying again in a bit - but not hopeful. Anything I can do or is that it? My entire collection wasted and I'll have to start allllll ovr again on my games?

    FUUUUUUCK. :'(

    If it's dead dude I'm sorry. That would be so shitty. Doom shall sacrifice 1000 slaves in memory of your PS3. Btw I have the same model type.
    Doom runs a country, bitch! A nation of slaves! Dig you a grave! I'll make Umbrella look like Welfare, minimum wage! Doom is getting enraged! I come harder! Killed my ex-girlfriend and turned her into a suit of armor! Beat you to death with your legs, leave you in stitches, Marvel 2 is the shit, RE 5 is for bitches!

    What do you mean by vacuum?

    I tend to find the people that end up taking too many precautions and over protective about their stuff are the first to mess it up or something.
    For example, my friend always used to take out the discs off his PS3 since he first got it and put it back in the box right after use.
    Then one day it stopped reading the discs.
    It's just a flesh wound.

    I hoovered it, as I have done many many times before, and never had a problem, But this one has killed it. I do this to stop the dust getting too bad in the fan, as it was getting quite loud and hot recently...

    The good thing is, you won't lose your trophy collection. Just sync when you get a new console.

    P.S.

    Sorry to hear about your console. My old PS3 died after a power surge so I know how it feels.

    I'm by no means an electrician lol, though I suppose if i were to watch a few youtube vids and take it apart, it can't do any more damage...

    if just the system died if you get another cheap one you may be able to take out the hard drive and put it in a different one so atleast you dont lose your saves

    yeah, pretty sure if you slip it to another ps3 it'll tell you to reformat it.

    My fat 60gb shut off a week before Christmas and right when I was playing Assisans Creed and I got the YLOD. I did the same like you suggested and switched the hard drives but it asked me to format so I lost everything. Sorry about your loss I know how you feel.

    May sound stupid, but are you sure the power cable is hooked in properly? I have never seen the red light not be on with everything hooked up. Maybe the cable is out a little bit? Other than that, you can take it to a shop to fix it up for you, if you have a computer shop nearby that fixes things you should ask them.

    I'm not a techy so this idea might be impossible but is there a way to hook your HDD to your computer like it was a portable hard drive? That way you can get the saves off it.

    No such thing as stupid advice mate, cheers. But yeah I am sure it's hooked in properly. I have removed it and put it back in and tried a new one so I am sure. Don't really have any computer shops anywhere near me to be honest, but there do seem to be many places online that I could courier to..

    Sorry about your loss I know how you feel.
    lol it's like i've lost a child!

    I am hoping that I can do this too, I have put in a question on an electrical forum so hopefully one of them will be able to help me on this..

    cheers guys
