    Yea, you could buy a new PS3 for anywhere between $250-350. Or you could spend $30 on a heat gun and some liquid flux and fix the freaking thing.

    What could it hurt? It's dead right? May as well try it. If it doesn't work, you have a new tool and some knowledge.

    If you live in Canada or the States I say check out Future Shop or best Buy and see what games they are giving away with the Uncharted bundle before you make a choice.

    Try unplugging the main power cord and the TV cord and leave totally off for a day or two. Make sure the switch on the back is off before doing this. You should take whatever disc is in the console (if any) out before also cause it could corrupt it.
    I still play Black Ops because me and brother have 2 PS3's and share a copy of Modern Warfare 3. So that is why I play it sometimes. Thats the *ONLY* time I play Black Ops! When brother is not playing MW3, I am!

    you said a yellow light at the bottom? are you meaning the orange HDD light?

    my mate had the same thing happen to him the other day, his PS3 was having hard drive problems, coming up with the message saying the wrong hard drive was in or like you said just coming up with a black screen and a solid HDD light.

    after a few attempts it just started working again, we reckon its the 4.00 firmware update causing the problem, 4.10 is out now but i don't think that had any fixes on it.

    I think you should try not to turn it on for a full day... It might work if you leave it to rest??

    I feel your pain - I got the YLOD myself last July, and had to buy a new slim model. I managed to retrieve all my save data though, so I got off lightly in that regard. Hopefully you'll get away with no losses either.
