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 options available for you, in 80 GB PS3’s without backwards compatibility for $129.95 or a PS3 slim 160 GB for $149.95 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 If you would like the quote adjusted for the slim replacement please respond that you would like that. If you would like the Non backwards PS3 model than please checkout to continue. Alternatively, we can return YOUR unit back to you for the cost of inspection ($29.95).
