    Okay, so it was working three/four hours ago. I was playing InFAMOUS 2, and having fun. I turned it off to eat and check up on TFW, and when I go later to play InFAMOUS some more, it's not working.

    Some time in Nov., last year, it stopped working as well. That was fixed easily enough. It was a solder that had melted due to use in the summer.

    I don't think it's that issue. Here's what happens when I turn it on;
    It goes green for a bit, and then shuts off, light blinking yellow, then red/off until I shut it down.

    Any ideas what the problem is?

    It is; this is the second time it's happened. The first was the liquefied solder.

    And since I'm at this, if I log in with my PSN account on a different PS3, it'll transfer all my data, right?

    Just your PSN account and trophies, not your game saves or downloaded games.

    Does sony still have the ridiculous limit on game sharing? I know they cut it back, but it is it still in effect?
    Because if it is still in effect, then we you get a new PS3 then you can re-download the games and DLC from your account. But that will be your last time. You can only have it to like two systems now, and it bites.
