    First off thanks for any help I can get on this. I have a slim ps3 and it plugs up but I get no video. I hit the button, green light pops on ... no video.

    I tried holding the button for a recovery... no beeps just one beep and light goes back to red. It doesn't matter how many times I do it ... no video / no sound.

    I have a phat ps3 that will boot up but the drive doesn't work. Can I use the slim drive in the phat ps3? or move hardware around? Sorry for sounding like a noob, I'm just an XBOX guy and not much experience with ps3.

    thanks,

    The slim symptome is called a Green Light of Death, it's basically a YLOD (or RROD for you as an Xbox guy), just with different symptomes. You could try a reflow and see if it works again.
    There is no possibility to switch the drives of a slim and a phat PS3, unless you have jailbroken the phat.
