  1. it means a major hardware failure has occurred

    it’s fixable in most cases if you call sony support – 1-800-345-7669

    unfortunately you can’t recover the data unless you already backed it up to an external drive

    game saves are lost , online stats , trophies and psn purchases can be recovered by signing in after it’s fixed or on a new ps3 using your existing account

    each ps3 encodes the hdd to the system so another ps3 or pc won’t recognise the data – it’s to protect personal information and prevent software piracy
