    Have had ps3 60GB since April 07..... recently, whilst playing Motor-Storm the system switched itself off! The on-off light started flashing and it will not turn back on and the game disc is now stuck inside the machine. Sony have offered a re-conditioned 60GB, but I realy don't want to loose my system. Can anyone help?

The Red light is due to the HDD (hard drive).
There is one of 2 problems:
1. The connection is loose or
2. The HDD is just bad.
This was an issue that has been discussed over in the Playstation forums and it seems that re-seating
(removing & reinstalling) the HDD has solved the problem for many but some people have just
received bad hard drives period.
If you reinstall the HDD & it still beeps 3 times & gives you the red light, then you will have to replace
your HDD.
If I remember correctly, PS3s use Hitachi Laptop Drives. IMO, Hitachi is not well known for good
drives. I replaced mine with a 160GB Western Digital drive I got for free a few months ago. I haven't
had any problems since.
Hitachi makes a good drive, but the ones that fail seem to fail really bad. Western Digital seems to
make the best drives and they offer a very good warranty service as well. BUT I may be wrong as your system..

Clean the disk, make sure there is no scratches than contact the seller of the item if you're sure it's perfectly fine-looking and tell them your story, they should trade it in depending on where you got it.

Problem with Assasins Creed


I think it's the game's compatibility problem on PS3. 360 version has no problems.

Sound


Do you have sound when you first start the ps3 without going into the game?

If not then you should re-configure your audio settings
