    Someone said it could be the disk, which could be true.
    For me i have had this happen before, and it was just that my ps3 was hot. Giving it a 30 minute break fixed my problem.

    In my situation, it has happened both when i just turned it on and been playing for a long time, so the amount of time it was on didnt matter, both cases it was just very hot. Letting it cool did fix this both times, so might want to try it. I would still buy a slim and data transfer to it, as if this is a serious thing, you might not have long to get that data. A slim is still a good investment

    Wow heartless. People like you make me worry when i buy a ps3 off of someone on craigslist. So far none were on their deathbed, but i am sure one day i will be swindled into one. Not saying its a bad thing, as your lucky to get the money for it (of course it might not have been almost dead, which then you worried for nothing, since you dont know for a fact it died on the person)

    Sounds like a violent, prolonged, transformative, psychic episode.

    Hope it works out for you though.

    Glad to see you got a new one. Mine's been running the fan high too and the ti ti ti thing and turning it back on only to read that it didn't shut down properly and it has to scan all data. I'm probably going to back all my stuff and get a new one. Going to miss that fatty

    The way I looked at it is they can fix it cheaper than I can before selling it, and if it did die on someone it comes with a warranty...

    You said LBP2?

    I'm getting a little scared now. I have over 270 songs created in that game and I don't want them all to be erased by a potential YLOD, even though I have a PS3 Slim (120GB).

    You can back up your profile in your pod and it will make a file in the save file folder that you can copy to a usb, etc. If anything ever goes wrong you can import the backed up profile from your pod...

    I have a Fatty(160GB) that has been doing the samething for about a year now and its still works fine. It all started last spring and I had no AC to cool my house down and my fans started being really loud and then my system shut itself off. This happened a few time before I looked on the internet and found out that the highest room temp should be is 70 degrees F and of course in a well ventilated area. This is to keep the fans from running at a real high rate, almost sound like a blow dryer. Also I put four cans under my PS3 to raise it up and let the bottom stay cool as well. Since then I have had no problems and I play pretty much everyday for about 3 to 8 hours.

    I have recently bought a Slim(300GB) though and gave my old system to my kids.

    I would highly advise buying a new warranty from the playstation store. its like 50 bucks for two years, and thats way cheaper than buying a new unit. thats just what i would do bc i agree with Davey, your in the beginning stages of YLOD

    Unfortunately he can't do that because the warranty on the PSN store is only a extension of your warranty. If his ran out already its to late, I was thinking the same thing but customer service explained it clearly to me.

    I was going to suggest this as well if warranty hasn't ran out. I think mine has already and meant to get it prolonged, but I forgot and put it off. . Definitely suggest either doing this warranty if your's is close to expiring OR get a new system(if not already done so).

    Good luck though my friend and hope works out. .

    P.S. To anyone sells a nearly dying system, regardless if came with warranty or not.. that's why everything is so hard to do now like trading in stuff and systems and they have to go through extra processes to check if it's working and then puts extra hassle on other gamers and people. It's just fucked up regardless of how easy it is to fix or cheaper for them cause of warranty. That's just hurting business AND putting hassle on people didn't deserve it.

    I only buy new electronics anyways but still that's fucked to do to anyone.

    I am sorry but you are wrong...
    Not all ps3 systems have a warranty. If they do, the customer service isnt very nice or helpful
    If you do have a nice person to talk to, it takes a month or two to send it to them and get it back
    If you do send it out and you didnt get insurance, you could lose it with no compensation
    If you do lose it and get no compensation, your wife will leave you
    If your wife leaves you, you commit suicide
    Dont commit suicide

    Some of the last few was an exaggeration... The last one isnt. Dont do it

    the light flashing red means its overheating, i think its becuz the hardware on the old ps3s wasnt as strong as the new ones u have way less disk space and a lot less ram, and ur graphics card is a lot weaker, so ur ps3 trying to play games that are designed for newer ps3s makes it crash and since it dies midgame it has to go into recovery, im basing this on the fact that i my old laptop used to do the same thing when i played the sims 3 on it but then i got a new high tech laptop and everyhting worked fine, just get a new slim ps3 and do a full data transfer through an ethernet wire, and ur all set but MAKE SURE to export your LBP2 saved game first, you can do that through the game itself coz otherwise ull lose all ur game progress, happened to me =[

    It's a shame stuff like this happens but it's also good that they (kind of) perfected the PS3 Slim.
    at least we have somewhere to go when out trusted sidekicks die on us.

    Hmm this sounds familar. I've had this 2 times, but then when quitting the game. I quit the game and I heard 3 beeps and the PS3 restarted itself.
    Does that means it's overheated?
