So what happened to the General forum and the Video Games forum? o.0 I guess this is the only place I can post this:
So my PS3 80GB has been having problems lately with the "system is too hot" error. So I unplugged it, tried a whole bunch of tricks people had, andnothing worked. So I took it apart and cleaned out all the dust and put the screws back in their right location (minus two shell ones, not a big problem. They wouldn't go back in so I didn't force it) and tried playing it again. Little did I know, however, that my brother had put Uncharted 3 back in the system before I took it apart and did a fan test, so it wouldn't eject the disc and it was stuck. It didn't say it was in, either. So I took it apart again and looked for more solutions, and I ended up doing a tutorial on how to take games out of the blu-ray disc reader by taking it apart. Everything went well, I put everything back in it's natural order, and then we started up the ps3 again. Everything came up just fine (other than the restart thing you have to do to "recover memory" or whatever when you unplug it incorrectly) and we went to put UN3 inside. It didn't let us put it in. It seemed like there was something blocking it, and I knew there was nothing left inside. So we tried playing InFamous 2 and a couple other games that we have on our PS3. It showed the splash screens that deal with the motion controller and stuff, then it just wouldn't start up and the fans started going nuts. I've had this system for 2 years now I think, and I do not have a warranty on it anymore as it is now void (hence why I took my ps3 apart) and whenever we watch new blu-ray movies or play newer games, the fans go insane and the "system becomes hot."
So I'm not exactly sure what I'm asking here, but... is there a way to somehow miraclous way to fix this? I have no money and my warranty is gone, so I won't be sending it into Sony. If I could get any help on this whatsoever, I would be very happy
EDIT: Didn't see The Tavern there!! Will someone move this over there please?
