Im saying this out of experience...the new exbawx is better ive had my ps3 for prob over 2 years 2 months ago the damn thing locked up, i hit the reset button, nothing, so i flipped the switch, now it wont play games...my exbawx hasnt locked/froze up half as many times as my ps3 did the first year...

But, if you want to keep with sony id contact them, see what you have to do, or just go buy a new one

i have to replace the disk drive, you may have to replace the mobo or hdd(do they have a mobo??)

yeahh they got a mobo, if you replace the bluray drive,you have to swap the logic board from your old drive to your new one (there keyed) which is a pain, but not too bad :P

Added 3 minutes later:

also, strip the ps3 apart, clean up the board, get a hairdryer, heat up both main board chips, holding heat on each chip for about 30 seconds DO NOT TOUCH THE BOARD TILL IT HAS COOLED OR DURING HEATING. leae to cool for 20 mins, reassemble, and no more YLOD. :)
when bad weather has passed, birds sing, so why cant us humans learn to be happy and sing a song after a bad encounter?

when im 80+ years old, im gonna be the only one flirting in the nursing home. FuckYeah.

Well, since 2006 (that's almost 6 years!!!), so its a fat one? 20gb model? It really had a busy life, I guess...
See it, feel it, hear it.

I got the same PS3 at my dads gonna trade him, it hasnt locked up oon me at all aside from MCLA but that locks up on everyone i know that plays it, i think it has something to do with playing your own music in game
