UPDATE Got it fixed!!!! The guy that fixed for me told me the problem was the same as the red rings of death. Atleast thats what I understood. He said it was overheating and the mother board unglued itself and that PS3 has some emergency shutdown to prevent permanent damage. 60 bucks to fix and it's running like new. After 5 years my PS3 croaked on me last week. I just about have enough to buy another but was wondering if there is anyway to retrieve all my pictures, downloads, and trophies? Thanks in advance.
