    Is there a way to exchange an out of warranty ps3??

    Banned
    Sometime back (last year) i sucessfully exchanged my faulty psp with sony and am wondering if this is still possible to do with the ps3? It's actually my cousins and he says it's a fault called the "yellow ring of death" (what?!?) . Apparantly it's a common fault and he can't afford to buy a new one and his warranty ran out 3 months back. Is there anyway Sony would exchange it or has that stopped now? I know last year i heard it was a matter of ringing the helpline and then they would exchange the faulty one with a refurbished one. Any help would be appreciated as he's very worried, thanks!

    Thank you everyone for your help, i've told him about your advice and now he is going to try ringing first for an exchange, (though i just read sony have stopped exchanging for free since february this year) and if that doesn't work then he'll try continuous play.:thumbsup:

    Take it back to the shop under the "Sale Of Goods Act".

    "Warranty" means this>>>

    He needs to read up on "The Sale Of Goods Act", and/or go to the C.A.B and go to the retailer armed with information to combat their misinformation.

    More than likely, but as I said before
