I reecently came into a problem with my PS3 which is around 2 years old. No games work, they sometimes come up on the XMB but never start, but when i start it, the game doesnt load) i called up Sony and they said it'll cost £140 to give me a new console, my warrenty has gone so thought i might aswell try and fix it myself.
I opened up the case and took out the blu ray drive. i cleaned the lens, put it back in, only really disconnecting two cables which were connected to the Blu Ray Drive. put the case back on and put the power cord back in.
No light comes on at the front and it wont turn on through the ps3 controller either.
I have no idea how this could have happened as i only touched cables which connected to the blu ray drive.
As the void sticker is now damaged. will Sony stil take it and replace it for £140?
You'd know if you signed up to it as it costs £5 a month, but it's not available now, they're not taking on any new customers.
How do i know if im part of CP? i baught the ps3 in 07.
Try ringing and asking;
As others have said Sony will give you plenty of options, dependent on the fault.
YLOD - That'll be £145
Blu-ray Drive - That'll be £145
HDMI socket - That'll be £145
Wifi not working - That'll be £145
PS logo Fallen off - That'll be £145
Really, it's a fantastic service that can't be bettered. You can tell from the price that it's a quality service.
Ive checked the pins etc. Ive attached some images, if anyone notices anything different, let me know.
Plus, ive noticed that the two pins for the on/off and eject buttonare not identical. one of them seems to be bent backwards while the other is similar to an upside down L. is this normal?
Yeah sorry about that, i accidently posted two of the same links.
Heres the power button area,
Looks like one of the buttons might be bent. Here is a picture of the 80gb buttons.
You know when your connecting the data ribbon to the lid are you making sure that its in straight and you are pushing the black clip down.
If your BR drive is bust its still going 2 cost the same amount even with the power problem with sony.
