    3 Beeps is a hard-freeze, usually associated with a severe system or game error. This is commonly seen due to overheating of the unit, and sometimes corrupt OFW installations. Worst case scenario is the YLoD, which has been described above already.

    So, you actually re-balled your entire PS3? Or, you just added Arctic Silver thermal compound and called it a day?

    it's always a sad day when your fat PS3 dies :/ mine died in January while playing Star Ocean: Last Hope International on my old profile. i had 899/900 battle trophies and the save data corrupts itself if you copy it... 600-700 hrs of my life just gone. i have 2 slims now though

    My Fatty has been doing that for a year and a half now and she still works. 4 years and still running strong but I bought a slim just in case when I had some extra cash. Now my kids play the fatty.
