We have inspected your PS3 system. There are problems with major components on the motherboard which cannot be repaired. The motherboard needs to be replaced along with the DVD drive. The way that Sony designed the system, they need to be replaced as a set since the DVD drive is ‘keyed’ to the motherboard. The replacement set would need to come from a working system, and to avoid the additional labor required to replace all parts we would just sell you the replacement unit with the damaged trade in. Due to the failure and the system design, there is no option to recover the data from the console. We have replacement slim models in stock which start at $169.95 with the damaged trade in and include free shipping and 90 day warranty coverage as well as waive any inspection and estimate fees required by the order. We can also scrap the system and close the order if you would prefer. If youre looking for hard to find backwards compatible systems, we can also apply this towards the purchase of a replacement refurbished system from our available inventory. Just let us know if youre interested. Lastly, we can simply ship back your unit to you and the inspection and return shipping fee is $29.95.
