    If it only happens during LBP2 maybe its the disc. You have any friends who have a ps3 who can try out the disc on their system?

    I know this isn't helpful, but I'm sorry to hear that about your PS3. I believe we have some similar issues and I have the 80GB fatty as well. One thing that I may suggest is trying to vacuum out all the vents to rid them of dust and particulates...especially depending on if you store it in a place without much breathing. Check your saves and back them up whether it be to the cloud service or other method so you don't lose any save data.

    Good luck Angel!

    Is the system well ventilated? ... I had that problem with the original 60 gb ... so I'd run a fan in the area which worked for a while... then eventually the yellow light appeared after a few more months...

    Sorry should have explained abit more haha. Its like a shut down error i think thats what the 3 ti's are. By any chance is your system overheating lately like do the fans sound loud?

    THAT is the beginning stages of the YLOD my friend...mine started doing that and within a couple weeks MY PS3 was dead....The prominent sign in that is that it isnt just crashing the game and you have to hold down the button to restart it...its shutting itself down with the 3 beeps....you can try some fixes such as blowing out the vents and what not, but its best if you start planning for the worst

    From my experience when the fan starts to sound load its on the road to YLOD like Davey said.

    Glad I got rid of mine then. My friend told me the same thing but he wasnt 100% sure. Just go get another one, transfer everything over, then format and sell it before it dies on you and you cant get any money out of it...
