Nah, don't be intimidated at all. There's a 3 part walk through detailing every aspect of taking it apart, fixing it, and putting it back together. You can pause it and go as slow as you want or even stop until you're 100% positive you're keeping pace with the guide. I fixed mine and it's relatively simple as long as you keep every screw that you're taking out. Don't sell it as broken when you can fix it with an hour's work. Watch this video before you make any decision...

It looks easy, but I'd rather not. Only game system I have ever worked on was a PS1 and that is way more simpler than a PS3. Besides it has the warranty seal on it still so it'd make it worth it for someone to buy at a low price and send in to Sony. I was gonna sell it a month ago, but didn't because I wanted to keep playing Gran Turismo 5. I guess it was good I didn't sell it and have it break on someone else. I'll just sell it the way it is now and the 37 games I have gotten for it and buy a bunch of PC games instead. I was getting bored with the console scene anyways. Thanks for the info as well!

It cost $150 for Sony to fix it btw. And they use 2-day-air so you don't have to worry about it being gone for like 6 weeks (cough RRoD xbox).

Instead Of selling just give sony a call about having it fixed , or like suggested try it yourself , I mean ive seen it done almost anyone can do it with some patience and a little bit of time.

All Sony is offering is to sell you a refurbished model for $150. Honestly, use it as a learning experience and challenge yourself. You'll be surprised how easy it is when you have a step by step guide literally walking you through every single screw and step lol.
