Wild guess but i assume he had a BC PS3 before and now doesn't, that or it's a HDD size issue and he doesn't know how to swap em.

My launch model died on me 2 days ago aswell. Head is wrecked. Can't afford to shell out for a new one.

I was looking on youtube for a solution and came across THESE THREE VIDEOS







Has anyone ever done this and would ye recommend it(bit sceptical about putting it in the oven) or should I just send it off to get repaired somewhere

Missing tons of features from original , cheaply made and makes more noise. Also heats up more than old one

Thought the 360 s was better in every way, it didn't need a wifi adapter at least.
