Weird stuff going on I see.
Well my PS3, I've had it for like 3 years now, and it has died on me once, like one and a half year ago that was, caused by electricity fail - and even smelled like burned plastic - and it wouldn't turn on either (when pressing the button while red light, the total system turned off by itself - like when you do when you hit the backside button). Thought it was done.
Then I decided to pull out all cords for 3 days, pull them back in, power on, wait another 2 days, and turned it on by rejecting the stuck CD and it worked...
My PS3 been working perfectly ever since.
Hell, I even think my fat PS3 is going to last several more years.
Let me know about your situation, hope it's gonna be alright for you.
I don't know, I WANT Neptune, and I can get it soon, but I'm really worried about getting all of the trophies and I really cannot find any help.
I'm asking Shikaku but getting slow responses.
Do you have any sources of help my friend?
