    I tried switching on my PS3 just now and although the ps3 switches on nothing is coming on the tv. I thought it might be the HD cable so i switched the cable to the other one (red, yellow and white) but again nothing! Tried it on another tv and again nothing!

    Now what do i do???????????? HELP ME HUKD

    My PS3 is the 60gig one, and i have had it for about 14 months now. So warranty has expired as well.....WHAT SHOULD I DO?????

    tried it and nothing

    My xbox 360 died today, but it went into my theatre and was resucatated and brought back to life.

    phone sony up and lie about when you purchased it.

    just to let you know....my Mrs in so happy with the news that my ps3 died. I could almost kill her

    Do you want to book your PS3 in to my Theatre. Also tell your missus, you got a replacement on its way, that will wipe the smirk of her face. LOL. Get an xbox 360.

    the question is though who is that punishment for????:-D

    how old is ur ps3? if its less than a year call them and get it done. if its more than a year go on ebay and pay someone 10 pounds to do it for you. i donr that and got my almost 2 year old 60gb replaced for a nice new (refurbished) one.

    Why pay someone £10 to make a phone call you can easily do yourself?

    Sony are normally quite good just give them a ring and tell them whats happened and worst they can say is no then you get your evil devil horns out and stamp your feet till they admit defeat!

    i guess 2 weeks is a small price to pay for free ps3 (considering mine was out of warranty)

    The "warranty" is irrelevant. I hate to see people go on about the 12 month "Warranty".

    Your PS3 should last longer than a year, so you are entitled to get it fixed if it fails a few months out of "Warranty".

    The problem with the 60GB PS3 is that the retailers can't swap it for you because they have none left.

    This is the only time I ever advise going to the manufacturer, as Sony are excellent in repairs.
    The one you will receive won't be new, but reconditioned, which will be as good as new.

    lol, sorry just did quicl reply from the first page

    Glad to hear you've got another PS3 on the way as it's reassuring in case there are any problems with the ones here.

    would someone really make the mistake of buying hitachi twice? :w00t: ;-)

    how do you go about with this procedure, do you have to send in your faulty ps3 first or does a sony rep come and collect your faulty system and give you a replacement there and then, just curious

    this is an official warranty extension site, your warranty can have expired and i beleive if yours breaks you can just call up say you want to join then get them to repair it... although i dont think thats what the idea is
