PS3 Broken in Gaming Posted May 23, 2009 Chill the [hell] out. [stuff] happens it is a part of life. It sucks that it has happened to you but it has been known to happen on off occasions. Try opening the little bay on the bottom/side for the HDD and giving it a thorough vacuuming out. If you want to know if it is still under warranty, try going down to the store you purchased it from and see if they still have the records of your purchase. Other than that I would suggest calling Sony again and if need be sending it out.
