My classic fatty 60gig Ps3 yellowed don me after 4 years. I used a 7 video YouTube guide to repair it. Then I got my game out, saved all the data I could and then took it too Gamestop. They flipped out because it was a backwards compatible PS3. I got over $200+ dollars for it, so I bought the LBP/inFAMOUS 250gig. I also traded those in a different GS and got credit and bought another game since I already owned them. I think I got a good deal over all. It was sad, but I was meaning to upgrade anyway and I got a good long time with the original.

Sell it if possible. Sold off a 360 with broken USB ports to Gamestop for a solid $100.

You get mad and start gaming on PC again. Worked for me.

Start saving up for a next-gen console, or if it's early in the the current gen then sell it off as is while you still can!
