    I have the exact same problem right now as well Johnny. Thankfully my brother has been leeching a room off me in my apartment at the moment and i can still play my disc games on his ps3 lol. I've also been looking into getting this one fixed, although I've also thought about just straight out buying a new system as mine in almost 4 years old now.

    With all the information in this thread I have now opened myself up to the possibilty of doing it myself, just gotta do some more reasearch into it. Anyways thanks guys, and I wish you the best of luck Johnny, because believe me I truly know how aggrivating it can be to only play psn games

    Goodbye to the beloved PS3. It had a good heart after its upgrade when its heart grew over 10 sizes from 40 to 500. Some people referred to it as the Grinch for this, however it preferred Frankenstation 3. Frankenstation may not have been as slim as other PS3s and was often referred to as a fatty but it was for the larger size she was remembered as an original. She would often let anyone on her and put anything they felt like it in her. She was a good system, even though she murdered my Street Fighter 4 Fight Stick. While she may not be completely dead, she is as good as. She will always be in our hearts and minds. Farewell Frankenstation 3, you will be missed.

    LMFAO!!!!! that was freaking great dude. although she may not be totally dead she is on her way. sucks she took out your street fighter stick but she knew her time was short and i guess needed a friend in the elephant graveyard. gamestop offered me $115 for her today so i guess i'll take her in and trade towards a 320 slim as soon as i can scrounge up the rest of the money. won't be easy but i'll figure it out someway lol

    and to everyone else thanks for the comments and DIY tips but trust me.....i am not a DIY type of person. i was surprised i was able to upgrade my hdd myself without messing that up and that's freaking simple.

    Then make sure you atleast deactivate your accounts through the Sony site so you can keep your 2-5 Ps3 slots.

    At this point in time, I would most likely just save up for Orbis (PS4) if my PS3 was to break. Even though I still have 2 years left on my warrenty. But after that if it happens, I will save up. But in your case, you can repair it for a cheap price. The closest store that I have that would repair PS3's costs $250. I would rather do it myself. But, your lucky to have a repair so cheap. Good luck
