Playstation 3 warranty replacement

Posted August 2nd, 2008 at 1:01 PM by Sniper

Yep, that’s right my PlayStation 3 has failed twice, with the second replacement on its the way already. First time round I got the flashing red light of death, second time the screen started to crazy with all kinds of different colors and lines (over heating issue) and before you ask! yes its well ventilated consider its sitting on its own away from other hardware.

The first one did last for around 11 months, it was left folding when idle but once GTA4 was played, it died. Second one started to crash a lot when GTA4 was played on it, eventually died again. So don’t know who to blame the recent heat wave in the UK or GTA4?

Anyway both times Sony have been kind enough to replace it for free (considering its under warranty) but they did manage to lose my copy of Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (frequently played game), ahhhh! but they’ve been kind enough to send me a bran new copy.

PS3 arrived on Monday 4th August and PES 2008 arrived very next morning, hurray! Excellent service! If you have any questions, similar/bad experience please leave a comment.

    I bought a ps3 from Amazon in July this year, it no longer loads games. I have proof of purchase through my amazon account but the warrenty has been misplaced. The box is less than 6 months old. I have tried online to get a contact number for sony but have been unsuccessful. How can I fix the problem? please help

    Hi Janice

    Trying calling 08705 99 88 77(National Rate), they will ask for the PS3 serial number (located on the back), they know when the PS3 was purchased so no worries about misplacing your warranty!

    I didn’t have the warranty docs myself when I got a replacement.
