During my move into the new house, I discovered my first PS3, tucked quietly away in a closet. I can't remember exactly what was going wrong with it, but I think it was simply the BRD drive not playing discs. This is one of the original models, with a very small 60gb HD, and rather large in size.
I've done some reading, and it looks like Sony would fix it for about $175 including shipping. I can get a new one for about 90 bucks more. Just curious if anyone has had any luck with having their PS3 repaired, or if I'd just be throwing money at a bandaid.
I hate for it to go to waste, but I also don't want to put more money into a rather old console.
