My Playstation 3 bit it recently. It was one of the original 60 GB machines. When I try to turn it on, it flashes a bit, beeps three times, and flashes red. I've searched this out, and it's well-known that this means sending it back to Sony for a minimum charge of $150.
I decided to buy a new one, get the 300 GB drive, and also the Move package. I'm happy with the decision. Life should be great.
My GameFly disk is stuck in the old PS3. I guess I could just take an axe to the damn thing. Short of physical damage, though, is there any way to hold down buttons or put the PS3 in some mode where it ignores everything else and ejects the disk?
