If selling a YLOD PS3

    Would it be best to sell it without the HDD, as I used the web browser quite a bit and am worried about people extracting the passwords.




    did u save them so sites logged in auto?

    best avoid the worry and remove the HDD esp if it had your sign in on auto and credit details saved to psn.

    have you tried the hairdryer trick of blasting the back of the ps3 with a hairdryer for a few minutes, this will sometimes rectify the problem long enough for the ps3 to log on and you to delete everything and also in some cases leave you enough time to copy your save games.

    I tried opening the PS3 up and using a heat gun, to no avail.

    another way if you wanted to is to buy a casing for the ps3 hdd and connect it to your pc and format it on there, wiping everything on it then putting it back into the ps3, cost less than a fiver on ebay
