tried unplugging it and letting it sit for a minute or so?

Also where you get it from? Most stores have a 30 day replacement policy/7 day full refund or something.

If you used a credit card or debit card, you're purchase could still be in BB database or something, idk.

Call Sony and/or search the internet for a solution. I'm out of ideas now, sorry.

u gotta still be under sony warrant. give em a call

Did it eventually work?

actually it did eventually work for a bit but its ONLY a COMPLETE last resort as you got to open it and by opening it you need to break the seal in place which at that time you will not be able to sell/repair/pawn off to anyone. actually i would not suggest this whatsoever theres the outside but still highly possible chance of electrocution lol as funny as that sounds being killed by your ps3 im sure its no picnic. best bet is to dig up that receipt or if you ordered by credit/debit card, anyway of tracing the purchase is as good if not better than a receipt at best buy

Actually, i paid cash for my ps3 so im guessing im shit out of luck. This is really bullshit, i've been saving up all summer for this. My mom trashed the fuckng reciept and trash went out earlier this week. I'm bascially assed out. Any other suggestions?

Get to the store as soon as you can. They probably have your purchase in their system.

Name the date and time and they might be able to help you.

I had the same thing happen to me. I had my PS3 for about two weeks at the time. I was playing NBA 2K8, and the voice on the game went mute. And then soon after the game froze. After that point, my PS3 would not read any games, CD's, etc. A flashing circular object would appear in the right hand corner of the screen, like it was trying to read the discs, but it would never read them. It seemed that a lot of people were having the same problem at the official PS3 site forum that I was posting at.

I still had my receipt, but the Gamestop store I bought it from only had a 7 day refund or replacement policy. I should have purchased the extra insurance from Gamestop when I bought the PS3. So I had to call Sony up, and tell them the problem, and the replacement PS3 was eventually sent to me. I've had the replacement PS3 since January,
and I haven't had problems with it, so far, at least. You might want to go to the PS3 forums and see if any people there can give you suggestions, since you don't have the receipt anymore.
