Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Unfortunately not, if the PS3 will not turn on then you have no way to access the date.
The issue is that the PS3 encrypts the data so you can not even pull the drive and put it in another PS3 because the encryption code is unique to each PS3.
So with this in mind I have been recommending to my customers that if they have a PS3 that they should look at getting an external drive instead of upgrading the hard drive. This way they have a place to save there game files to uncase the PS3 dies or the hard drive goes out.
Let me know if you have any more questions
