Bizzare PS3 functionality problem.

I have seriously had no luck with any of my consoles lately. My GameCube sometimes doesn't read the disc, and my Wii is lying completely dismembered because my mother's boyfriend took it apart and never got off his ass to fix it, or even put it back together, and now I think my PS3 is starting to break down on me. Whenever I turn it on, A frequent clicking sound repeats inside of it, and none of the icons display on the xmb -except for the settings-, and then it just locks up and freezes. If you try to shut it off, the screen goes black, and the green light just blinks repeatedly until you hit the switch on the back or unplug it. It's becoming a really tiresome ordeal to have all of my consoles break down one after another, so I ask if this has ever happened to any one else before? I need advice, because the Sony website was absolutley no help at all, and from what I've heard, there customer service isn't any better. If anybody knows any solutions,, or even what is wrong with it, I would appreciate it if you could tell me what I could do.

That's an easy fix.

Materials needed:
-The broken PS3
-Some relatively thick rope
-a blunt hitting object, like a baseball bat.

Process:
-Tie the rope around the PS3, so that you have a long strand still hanging off.
-Tie the end of the rope to your ceiling or a tree.
-Beat the Pinata Station 3 with the baseball bat.

Well, PS3 customer service is really crappy and also may cost money.

As for your gamecube, this is a common error, the lasers go bad often. There are online guides to fixing it, or you can just get a new cube for $30-$50 dollars.

I know the Playstation service sucks... that's why I made this thread, to ask If anyone else could help.
It may be time to get a new Gamecube, though... I've had it since 2002. But I think I'll wait to see how much longer It will hold up. It hasn't died on me yet, so hopefully I can get more time out of it before having to get a new one.
That, and I'm broke.

I asked my mother's boyfriend to swap out the hdd to see what would happen, and sure enough, it loaded up perfectly fine. He thinks it may be a corrupted file, so hopefully it will be resolved tomorrow when he does whatever he needs to do with it.

Mine will not read discs at all. well, right now it can't do anything, because the screws aren't even on it, but that was the reason why it needed to be taken apart. It never got fixed, though.
