well thats the thing, i have done a lot of reading about the YLOD, and everyone says the light will start flashing red. i get no flash at all, the power button goes green for a millisecond then back to solid red. i might have misunderstood the YLOD.
Not sure when it occurred. my little brother comes over and plays it regularly and he usually leaves it on confidently, sometimes all day without me knowing about it as i am at work or school. Couples weeks ago it just wouldn't turn on when i was going to watch a movie.
If it is the YLOD is there any way to salvage my saved game data? IE remove harddrive and transfer files to new ps3? or is there valid way to fix it.
