Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Help please my hard drive is corrupt everytime i restore it then turns off and restarts then the same message comes up again
After the failed attempt to take the hard drive out and let it rest for 30 minutes we called Sony back. "SCEA will be sending a pre-paid shipping box to the address listed above. This address will also be used for the return shipping of your unit."
So, I guess Sony has changed their tune about taking care of the shipping expenses. Thanks to comments on the internet like Guest above.
We did ask if would be replaced with a refurb or new. They said new, but how do you know for sure.
My only other problem is the time. We reported this Friday a week ago and now it is Sat. and we still haven't received the box to send it to Sony, plus who knows how long it will take for them to process and send something back.
Didn't try to reformat the hard drive via the my PC. I was afraid it would invalidate the warranty, but who knows. Maybe if they hadn't agreed to pay for the shipping I would have done that as a last option.
The question about the restore and deleting everything, I guess if it would have worked it would.
