Make that fourth. After hearing the fan sounding like a jet engine, I tried to
clean it. Shut it down via XMB, wait until stanby, flip the switch in the back,
remove the plug. After all that I vacumed the vents, polished the chrome,
and everything with a game inside but I really didn't shake the console or
hard just to wipe it. I plug it back it then 3 beeps and flashing red lights. I was
like WTF happened. There is no yellow or green lights, when you flip the switch
in the back 3 beeps and just pure flashing red lights. It's ironic how right before
cleaning I was thinking that it's sad those people's PS3 is breaking down. LOL.
Any solutions? It's 60GB launch edition BTW.
