Hopefully it's still under warranty and does not take long for Sony to fix it for you.

WheresMeNuts I will either send it into sony or use the sale of goods act to return it to the store.

Just go to B&Q and buy a Heat Gun & also a Torx Driver & fix it.Thermal paste costs around £3.

This would be a temporary fix and will work for a few days, if your lucky a couple weeks.

Going to try the hairdryer trick to see if I can deactivate and get saves. I will then decide do I go after Sony for a repair and see if I can get it for free or go after Tesco with sale of goods act. Merry blooming Christmas.

Must be the season for it

Definitely going to pursue under the SOGA mines with currys wife will be chuffed no PS3 over the festive period.

No 40gb did something similar before with hp laptop that had faulty NVIDIA card just have to prove it was going to fail from day 1

Bit of a result just got half my money back for my 3 year old ps3 from currys. Did not even need engineer report just phoned.customer service mentioned soga and was asked to take it to.tech guys. Who tbh just tried to fire up machine and yellow light came on and accepted it quite happy really

so theres no way to get your data off your hard drive?
I would back my stuff up, but thats 200GB on rec TV and music and you can individually back up most saves
