Anyone have experience with sending in broken ps3s for repair?
    #11183881 - 10/05/09 12:19 AM (8 years, 14 days ago)

So my PS3 hasnt been able to play ps3 games or blu ray for almost a year now. I trouble shooted a long time ago there's simply nothing I can do to fix it.

But im curious as to what would happen if I sent my shit in for repair. I have the old 60 gig model(I'm pretty sure it's 60, it was the motorstorm package). It can play ps2 and ps1 games(that feature still works!:tongue:).

Assuming they weren't able to fix it and had to send me a new unit, would they replace it with the same model I have now, or would they give me one of those new ps3 slims? I mean, I really doubt they have some old 60 gig models laying around. I do want to keep ps2 compatibility. Then again.. I read that these slims have more CPU power than the older models. It's too late to call for support, I just wanted the shroomerys opinion

I have no personal experience with the PS3, but I had a friend who had an issue with one a couple years ago. From the sound of it, he had the same issue you do. Turns out that the laser which reads the blu-ray discs was not working for whatever reason, and after about a week of not being able to fix it they just sent him a refurbished model. He's been using the one they sent for a while now and as far as I know no problems. So, worst case they will make you wait a little while without a PS3 while they try to fix yours. I don't think they would send you one of the new slim ones because they should have a stock of the older refurbished ones ready to send out.

There was a king that always felt too high and then he fell too low
And so he called all the wise men to the hall
And begged them for a gift to end the rises and the falls
But here’s the thing, they came back with a ring
It was simple and was plainly unbefitting of a king
Engraved in black, it had no front or back
But there were words around the band that said
Just know: This Too Shall Pass

Is it still under warranty?

I must not Fear. Fear is the mindkiller . Fear is the little-death that
brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over and
through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. ONLY I WILL REMAIN.
