So my PS3 is currently comatose. I called Sony and they want $129.99 to fix it. Anybody had any luck (good or bad) with getting their PS3 repaired?

My PS3's drive died right after GTA4 came out. I sent it back for like $150 and they just mailed me a new, same version, PS3 to me. I forgot to backup my HD and all my stuff was lost, of course. I got my new PS3 in about 8-9 days or so after I mailed it.

If you can back up your HD, do it or you will lose all your saves too.

My PS3 quit reading discs with about a week to go in the warranty. They sent me a box, I sent them the PS3, I got it back in about a week and it has worked ever since. I was quite impressed and would deal with them again - but, of course, that was free. Make me pay $130 to fix it, and I'd at least consider buying a new one instead if I could find a good sale or bundle or something.

I can't even turn it on...my Gran Turismo 5 disc is stuck in there. I don't see how I can back it up.

Ask around. You can probably find a local techie that will fix one for around $50.

There's people on Ebay who will fix it for as low as $40 and give you a warranty with it.

Just type "PS3 Repair" into the Ebay search engine.

Arent PS3 HDs merely laptop drives? I'm sure you could take it out, put it in an external case and back it up that way.
