The ONLY way to resolve this and NEVER have this situation again is to get it REBALLED. Sony and other electronics manufactures have switched to using 'lead-free' solder. This type of solder is environmentally safe, but does not hold up to high heat like the PS3 generates very long. Only lead solder can since it can withstand high heat, it melts when temps reach beyond 400*, which no PS3 will ever meet unless put into a furnace.
