Recovering from surge / Cant connect to internet / transfer data ??? –
So my legit console went capoot on me a few weeks back. I had an electrical surge travel up my ethernet port and it either f'd up the motherboard or my wireless receiver /send unit.
Long story short it was YLOD'ing and I had a repair guy do a reflow, left his house with it still not working, then miraculously a day later it fired back up but no HDMI port and I cannot connect to the internet via wired or wireless connection. It has trouble syncing controllers too but I have been lucky enough to get them to sync with a little extra patience.
So my thing is, it is syncing the controllers still, which from my reading, the wireless sending/receiving unit controls both internet and bluetooth i believe, seems like their is a chance I can get this fixed somehow to connect to the internet. If i can just connect then I can signup for psn plus, and upload my copy protected saves, then be good with it. Any ideas???
Keep in mind ALL I am trying to accomplish here is to retrieve a couple of my pain in the ass copy protected saves off this unit as I have a new slim. Before anybody suggests it too, backup and restore is useless for this task. Ive tried it.
As far as I know, my ps3 has never had an undetected error.
