SOURCE: buying bigger hard drive?
it is the difference in the consoles not the size of the hard drive.. the size of the hard drive is just an indicator between the different versions of the ps3

well sounds like your PS3 needs to be reflowed or reballed. I would highly recomend you have a professional do the repair. as fas as having a game stuck inside the machine you can get it out in under 10 seconds by doing this.<br /> <br /> 1) turn off power switch in back of ps3<br /> 2) place finger on eject button and hold there while ps3 is off ( no red light) <br /> 3) while holding finger on the eject button turn power switch on the back of ps3 on , hold finger on eject button untill the disk ejects.<br /> 4) turn power switch off and have unit repaired or replaced. <br /> <br /> if unit is covered by warranty and you send it to sony you must get your disk out of the system as you will NOT get it back if you send it to sony. Most reputable repair shops will return your disk with the system or give it to you before they take the system in for repairs. I ALWAYS give the game disks back before a customer leaves my shop as it leaves me with less to keep track of.

This can can be any one of numerous issues. The first step toward setting everything to rights is to discover what the light is trying to communicate, outside of the obvious fact that your system is not working. First, disconnect everything from the unit, power cable, HDMI, component cables, controller-charging cables or anything else you may have connected.
Allow the unit to sit and cool off for a few minutes before re-attaching all the component wires. It is a good idea to begin with just the connection to the television. You can also try a manual reset of the system if the above steps do not work, simply press and hold the power button for ten seconds.
If none of the above works, you are dealing with a serious PS3 flashing red light issue. This could be a faulty power supply, dead hard drive or malfunctioning CPU just to name a few. You will need to check all these components out and determine if they are still functioning correctly. Screwdrivers and a few other common household tools may be required.
