Question Feeler, WTT My PS3

with your PS3. I have a 1st Gen PS3 (60gb), backwards complatible with all previous PS versions, and media card slots up front, wifi, and 4 USB ports.

Reason I want to trade is because the optical port is not working. My home theater receiver does not support HDMI Audio. If you use only HDMI or Analog audio with your PS3, it will work for you. I know the newer PS3s are not fully backwards compatible like mine is, and don't have the media card slots.

I don't feel like paying $200 to get it repaired, but I suppose if this idea fails, I may do that.

Edit: All I ask is that your PS3 has wifi.

I might bite on that. My son's PS2 just took a shit and I don't really want to buy him another one. He's on his third one in 12 months.

Mine is the 40gig, and I only use HDMI.

I thought all PS3's had wifi? I also have a 1st gen 60gb and my only complaint is that sometimes in the middle of a game (usually the best part) mine suddenly beeps and goes dead and the fans go on high.

FUCK Canada

Can't you upgrade the fans, like 360's?

Give me a dollar.

The problem with heat is nothing new on the PS3. I noticed the problem first when watching a blu-ray movie and then found that it would occur on games after playing for several hours. A few months ago I bought a 4 fan cooling system that does seem to help but it is noisy...and the problem still occurs every once in a while. I've come to the conclusion that when it happens its a good time to take a beer and smoke break and then have to restart the system. I'm not a serious gamer so its only a minor inconvenience but it would be nice to figure out whats actually causing it for the occasion I'm watching a blu-ray movie and it shuts down in the middle of a good scene. Blu-Ray is honestly the only reason I bought it...playing games was just an added bonus. I even found a cheap bluetooth keyboard and mouse to see just how well it would surf the internet but am not impressed with its browser. Im sure if and when the time is right I can get my money out of it unless it just dies completely.

FUCK Canada

Yes, it has wifi, but I keep it hardwired. Too many issues with wifi for online gaming, it's easier to me to just keep it plugged in. Only 2 USB ports.

I need to dig up my paperwork and see how much I have left on the warranty, and I'll let you know.
