My PS3 decided to give up the ghost on Monday night after a few hours of GT5. It was running fine and then just cut out beeped at me and left me with a flashing red light.
I switched off the PS3 at the mains and left it for 5 mins. I then started it back up again and it ran ok for 2 mins before cutting out again.
I've read on the net that the issue could either be the HDD or the PS3 overheating. I've tested the HDD in a caddy on my PC and it detects it so I think the issue is with the PS3.
Has anyone had this issue before and how did you fix it? I've read about re-soldering the motherboard but I need to be sure of the issue before I make things worse.
