have you spent your winnings from your bet the other week? if not you will dip into it now if you want to play on ps3

spent it, put it towards the tv :/, and lent some out haha, how much would it cost to fix it?

via sony it would cost 131 out of warranty repair IIRC, or you could use console doctor i think they are called for a bit cheaper, there is a way you can do it yourself with a hairdryer but in most cases that only provides a window long enough for you to save your gamesaves onto a usb etc and isnt a permanent fix
