If you have another way of proving where you bought it then go to the retailer, or phone Sony and the will replace it.

thats what happened to mine. sony need to extend the warranty on the ps3. i got YLOD (yellow light of death) after 18 months.

Sony replace without a receipt?.

Same kinda malarky as the 360?, check with the serial?

Mine just beeps rapid to, when playing something, the noise you get when you turn it on, beep beep beep , rapid, then it cuts out.

oh and you dont need the receipt. just call them and make something up. if your not comfortable doing that go on ebay, type in faulty ps3 and theres a guy who will do it for £35.99.

Kinda return time you have?, not as long as with a 360 repair i hope!

They will send someone out with a PS3 and replace it on your doorstep. Within 48 hours usually.

yh u dont need to send it to them just a straight swap at the door. if the ps3 still turns on, back up your HDD then format it so when you get the new one just import all the data.

What do i do with the broken console?, do i give it to the courier in the original box when they drop the replacement off?.

Yh a courier comes, they've got a box containing the new PS3, they give that to you, they put the broken one into the box and go, that's it! You don't need the original PS3 box.

No, you only send the console, nothing else. Sony will explain it all when you call them.

you have to call sony 1st to arrange it and explain whats the matter with the console they arrange a collection and possibly an exchange call them 1st
