My PS3 died

So yeah I'm going to go get a new one tomorrow, I guess. Supposedly it's possible to temporarily fix a blinking red light PS3 long enough to save your data so maybe I'll try that. I've never really tinkered with hardware before though so chances are that I'll mess it up, but then again I doubt I could mess it up any worse than it already is.

Edit: Youtube videos are telling me that removing the hard drive is a lot easier than I thought, I might actually be able to do this!

Need to go buy a fucking hairdryer first though.


 Edit: So I got a new PS3. I tried to salvage the contents of my old one's hard drive but nothing worked. Fuck.

Edit: But eh like I said on twitter (in Japanese though)- It's not like losing saves is anything new to me. It happened plenty of times in the 16 and 32 bit eras (I never lost anything on the PS2 though) and then there was the time some motherfucker stole my PSP along with a metric fuckton worth of saves (including my S ranks for everyone in Idolmaster SP, thinking of that still makes me wish for the fucker who took it to die slowly and painfully).

But anyway yeah. No matter how many times it happens... it still hurts.


Edit: Tried starting the old PS3 up again, it worked for about five minutes before dying. I'm going to try the hair dryer thing again. 

Edit: I never did manage to get it working long enough to transfer anything.
