People all over the world have had their ps3’s crash. FYI if you’re out of warranty you’ll have to pay $149 AND with or without a warranty they will not send you back your original ps3, they will give you a refurb.

    I would just void the warranty and install like a 250GB hard drive in the PS3. The ps3 uses an ordinary sized laptop HDD which is 2.5 inches. You can back up the files if you place the ps3 HDD into a laptop and then use yours or your friends external hard drive, plug it into your laptop and remove and replace the 250GB you are going to use for your ps3.

    If you don't care about backing it up then just open up you ps3 and install the larger HDD and install the firmware.

    "250GB" was just a example of a size you can use.

Our wii is about 6 years old. It was working fine yesterday, today it doesnt even act likes it's getting power. No lights come on. Reset doesn't work, switched outlets...nothing happening.

Wii console's are known to over-heat. Try letting it cool down for a day with no power cables plugged in. Try and turn it on the next day, and if it doesn't work, my best guess is that it over-heated to the point of giving up. And when you plug it back in, blow in all the ports and cables just to be safe. If none of this works, it is either broken or needs more expertise than I can give.

Turned off after playing, came back the next day and nothing happened. Wouldn't turn on, no lights etc. tried pulling plugs and reconnecting and still nothing. Tried the reset button, still nothing....

Possible the outlet its plugged into is bad or a blown breaker.Try plugging in something else like a lamp to make sure.
Another problem could be the power supply to the wii is no good.

Slot Light

The disk slot comes on briefly when:
-You turn the power on
-You put a disk in or take one out

And it pulses when you have a new message on your Wii message board. It does not stay lit while the Wii is on.
