    anyone used www.consoledoctor.co.uk for ps3 repairs

    Hi
    I have the dreaded YLOD. Whilst scanning forums someone has recommended the above service.
    For 69.99 the will mend your console return any games that were in the console and give you a 6 month warranty. If it gets the same fault in the 6 months they will do it free of charge.
    Has anybody used them. The testimonies on the site look good but i never trust that. They are based in Newcastle.
    Thanks in advance.
    The reason i am thinking of this is also due to the fact that we had nothing backed up so my son would have to start his games all over again. The site also suggests you would get the console back in 7 - 10 days which seems pretty good to me.
    My alternatives would be send it to Sony which takes quite a while. I have had very good advice about the Sales of goods Act from HUKDers but looking at all my options at the moment. If these are good it seems a reasonable deal and will save me alot of hassle.

    you know if you ring the official line and moan and whine (ask the regular whiners on here to do it for you if youre no good)

    youll get it fixed for free - aslong as you havnt made amendments to it (custom HD etc)

    kapows is right.

    No i havent made any amendments...not clever enough for that..will give it a go on Monday its worth a go. Thanks

    I sent one off to them, it was returned in the same state because they couldn't fix it.

    The only cost to you is the postage to them, which if you use a courier will only cost a fiver or so.

    where did you purchase from?

    i was tempted to try and go through Sony and get a free replacement but it would mean losing all my saves. I complained to GAME under Sales of Goods Act, and they sent it to Total Console Repair. Had it back and got all my save games off it. Then waited for it to break again (YLOD always does, mine did within a day) and sent it back again. When it breaks two times GAME give you enough money to purchase a new one :thumbsup: now just waiting for it to come back second time!
