So i have a low memory fatboy PS3, it's pretty old but not a launch unit. i also have a Harmony Smart control (the one with the sensor hub that is connected to a LAN). when i start up the "play video games" activity, the PS3 blinks a different color, beeps a few times, and then goes solid red. if i push the power "button"(not the switch), it turns off, then if i hit the power button again, it comes on. no problem.... i tried to start it up from the controller, and it doesn't do anything at all (all the lights blink on the controller, nothing happens on the unit)
My concern is that it's in it's death throes. If so, i want to make sure i have all my data and stuff backed up before it bricks! anybody had this happen? i see people getting the yellow light then blinking red, and not being able to start it up, but nothing like the issue i'm having.
