We have an original 60GB Playstation 3. This is the PlayStation 2 compatible version and also has extra USB ports & card readers.
So here is what is wrong with our PS3.... It had the YLOD a while back, we opened it up and repaired it using the heat gun method. When we opened it up to repair though, we slightly messed up power / eject buttons (both still work when pressed directly, just not with cover on - maybe we putting it on wrong?) and the blu ray drive ribbon clip broke but again seems to work ok. So overall, it worked fine....
We used the PS3 after the above heatgun fix for around 2 months with no problems whatsoever but then we had the same YLOD problem again. Did actually list it for sale on here at that point but decided against selling it and redid the heatgun method and it has worked since.
But thinking of finally making the jump to a slimline so thinking of selling it. So as of now, it is still working and can be shown working although think it would be best to say it is being sold for parts & spares.
So we are looking for £80... For this you get the PS3, power lead & Box/ manuals etc. I'm in Nottingham, about 5 mins from J26 of M1 so if anyone wants to pick it up, thats fine. If not, postage is £12.
Listed again due to time-waster...
