    Man I need to know who you talked with when they fixed it free of cost. I opened mine as well and I still got my warranty and they still wont take it to fix it.I payed 600 dollars for the 80gig and I'm not paying another 150 to fix a problem I did not cause, because its obvious the blue ray breaks by it self and not by us the people who play it.
    I have had ps1,2 and now 3 and I'm very disappointed in how SONY is handling this thing.
    They should swallow their pride and just fix the dam problem.

    my playstation will play video that i have downloaded but it wont read the disk and i have no more warranty on it and i need it fixed help...

  • Anonymous Dec 09, 2008

    i have the same problem. No disc will load at all, it won't even spin. Called

    Sony and they stated it would cost me $149.00 to fix. They even stated that they would pay for the postage, then they asked me for my debit/credit

    card number before they would mail the shipping box. As if they wanted

    me to think they were doing me a favor for saying they would pay for

    postage

I have called sony they said they will service it for 150 dollars here in the USA. Anyone help me out , i am think about opening it up and seeing if i can clean the laser drive?

    please let me know who you go in touch with.

    1 month out of warranty and the BR player reads for about 10 minutes and was told by Sony TS to do the online service request. They made it sound on the phone like I was getting some special expedite. But they won't process the request without a credit card number, so I am obviously going to get charged. Quite frankly I can get a BluRay player for less than the repair charge at this point and I am tired of $60 for each game anyway. I'll stick to gaming on the computer and move on. And no, XBOX is not an option either.

My ps3 stopped reading only the ps3 games and I NEVER OPENED it but my warranty is up and SONY YES SONY DOES NOT WANT TO FIX IT FOR FREE.

Posted on Feb 10, 2009

As i said above sony are fixing my ps3 FOR NOTHING and my warranty is well out of date plus i voided it when i opened it to clean the lens so you will be making a law suit for no reason because if you ask they will fix regardless of warranty.I think your a 360 fanboy because if you posted what you did you where obviously in a rush and you didnt read my post 360 fanboys stop trying to make out the ps3 is more trouble than its worth yes this is a big problem but not half as big as the 360's probs and even out of warranty sony are man enough to admit and fix the it.
