OG 80GB PS3, 5 years and 3 months old. Thang had a stroke while revisiting Dark Souls last night. Never happened before and thought it must've just overheated (even though it wasn't that hot at all). Switched it back on and did the same thing in after about 2 mins. Now the bitch won't turn back on at all. :(
I'm gonna do surgery tomorrow night when my Stop & Shop ho gets me a heat gun from her job. Gonna open that baby up and do the "reflowing" technique to re-establish the connections to the motherboard as well as cleaning a lot of the dust bunnies out of it. I'm pretty sure that's been hurting it. What I'm most concerned about is getting the disc out and deactivating the account. All my important game saves besides a few hours of L.A. Noire and GTA IV are in online storage. Other than that... I think I'll be able to come to terms with pulling the plug. :'(
WISH A THUG LUCK!
