Playstation 3 - Looks Brand New - selling for spares/repairs £40.00

I have an 18 month old Playstation 3 that I was given free with a mobile phone contract. I have played games on it about twice, but otherwise just used it for watching DVDs or watching things I have downloaded. Yesterday it decided to stop playing DVDs and the symbol just disappeared. The unit itself is working perfectly, except the dvd/game function. The machine makes a whirring noise like its loading the disc, but the option just doesnt appear to play them. No idea whats happened, rang Sony who said they would buy mine from me (fix it and sell it on) and send me another...for £130. As I dont even use the thing for gaming, I decided it would be cheaper just to buy a DVD player. Thought someone could fix this or strip it for parts. £40, collection in the Wigan area or can post first class recorded for £7.

Alternativley:
If anyone knows anywhere that buys PS3's in this condition please let me know :)
Shipping/Payment:
Collection in Wigan or first class recorded delivery for £7.

Hi mate is it the phat version and what size hard drive is in it?

Hi,

I'll take at asking if you'll post first and upload pics with your username and showing the console up and running.

Cheers

Sorry I will only post after payment. Thats why collection might be better (direct handover).
#6
Does it come with a controller, box etc, or is it just for the console?
#7
What firmware is this running.

Hi mate. Just thought you should let the buyer know that the 60gig ps3 was discontinued in july/august 2007. Most 60gig produced after jan07 didn have the backward compatibility with ps2 discs.
#26
If it falls through, Can i take it please?

I could do a local pick up.

i am being as honest as possible and I got it from dialaphone (as a free gift) in december 2009. i dont know what backward compatable means, but i can take photos or whatever needed if it will show the buyer?

en1gma yes, thank you, that would be fine. buyer paying on wednesday so will let you know if it falls through :)

It's extremely unlikely to be a 60GB model either.

Why don't you look on the bottom of the console and post the model number?

When he say 'backwards compatible' he is reffering to it being able to play PS2 games or not. The original PS3's could play games made for the Playstation 2, this feature was soon taken out as it was costly.

I just googled it and apparently the code on the back tells you what memory? i was wrong, its 80gb. i have included a photo. earlier i was told it was "either a 60 or 80" so i went with 60 so that i wasnt doing anyone out of anything (by saying it was the lesser). apparently the CECHL04 means 80?! i have edited the rest of the serial number off, just as im not sure what you can do with it...although what you want want to do with it i dont know.

Sorry I have only ever played a ps3 game on it, no idea about the ps2 games. but put model number thing up now, so hopefully this will help!
