Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hey..i was playing grid on my ps3..then i turned it off,then like after 3 hours..i tried to play another game,it gave me a black screen with no reason..i dont know why..but maybe there is somthing with hard disk??!!..please if anyone know the solution just let me know..ASAP
I think i've found two solutions with one being the easiest, hassle-free and no-cost solution and the other simply alternative DIY solution.
1) I phoned Sony Customer Support and the person i spoke to was really polite and organised a 'striaight-swap' console-for-console. They are sending a courier to my house with a new ps3 with the 40gb hard drive, similar to that in my 'damaged' console.
They said dont give them any cables, games or even the hard drive which you can take out and keep- they are quite literally swapping my old machine for a new one, which comes with a pre-fitted hdd.
I phoned them on Monday and they said it would arrive sometime on Thursday.
I strongly suggest anyone with this kind of problem and minimal, otherwise no experince of replacing hard-drive's themselves to do the same - after all, no extra costs are required, only a few days without your console.
2) I'm not entirely sure about people outside of the UK, but if you go to www.play.com, you will find a cheap and affordable-for-what-it's-worth hard drive that you can fit in and as gamerfixer07 has stated, 9 times out of 10, it will work.
The HDD specs are:
-Western Digital (brand)
-2.5" (of course)
-5400 rpm (don't ever get 7200 rpm unless you wanna burn your ps3)
-good seek speed
I've ordered mine because 40GB is not enough for HD films/TV shows, despite Sony giving me one anyway which is nice of them.
I hope this helps.
Please leave some feedback if everything is ok. Thanks!

For ps3 you have to first know that the battery is charged fully and if it doesnt work even if battery is full then you will have to change the battery or even if it doesnt work then you will have to get it repair soon.Hope I have solved your probelm.
Please rate my solution.
