Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I m exchanging in my PS3 for another one do i ONLY send the ps3?

I'm exchanging my 80 gb ps3 to Sony for another one, I read in the email i recieved from them, ''only send the console''. Does this mean I keep the hookups and controllers? or do I send everything that it came with? (i.e original box, ps3, controllers, hookups)

My ps3 wont read disks

this is what i posted on a simalar question ...

My ps3 stopped reading ps2 and ps3 games, dvd's and bluray disks altogether.

This happened to me with my 600.00 PS32.gif when they came out. Since I did not have my reciept I had to pay 90.00 and ship it to Sony. This actually happened to me right after I did an update.

Goto and goto support. There will be a series of questions to answer to see if you need to send it in. My PS3 took about 10 days to come back to me.

If you need further help, reach me via phone at

Ps3 wont read disks

well the best way i know is to do the PS3 exchange program with Sony its only $150 to send yours in and get a refurbished one back, if you think about it the average blue ray drive will run you around $150 so you are better off in the long run to send the thing in for the exchange program...
hope this helps you a bit, oh and better stay away from FFA 08 thats what killed a friends PS3...

Looking for a PS3 60GB model motherboard for replacement

You can't just replace the motherboard, the blu-ray is tied to the motherboard number, so if you put in a new motherboard it won't read blu-ray games anymore. Check to find out how it is tied to the motherboard.

Disc read error

Hey, i bought a ps3 almost 2 years ago now, its been more reliable for me than my old ps2. i would try and phone them again if you aint recieved the case soon,
it does sometimes take a while for them to repair it and send it back ie if its the same console, they might just swap it for another ie once u get it sent away :-).
sounds like a problem with the laser, im sure you will see the case soon, and touch wood have no problems with the replacement ps3.

Not read

hello, this is not ur fault guest. mine has jsut done the same thing. it is due to the recent 2.17 and 2.30 updates casuing laser to spin too fast and burn out. ring sony and they provide wonderful service and will send out a coupon via email to send the broken console to them, and will post a new one out to u. I was very impressed with how friendly and helpful the guys at sony were, and anew ps3 is currently on its way to me. contact sony asap as they r still covering ps3s which has just ran out of warranty for this issue. good luck!
