    And they want me to pay $150 to fix it because I can't find a receipt from 6 months ago and gamestop only keeps records for 30 days :ugh:

    I thought they were supposed to be better than a 360 hardware wise. I haven't misused the system at all.

    R.I.P. PS3 :wtc:

    yeah at least 360 repairs are free, and you don't need a receipt

    It overheated I bet. YLOD. Happened to me too. I bitched enough for them to ask me for my receipt but I had trashed it already, after keeping it for close to one year. :mad:

    It wouldn't even read a disc this morning. After speaking with a rep and troubleshooting, I got it to at least read the discs.

    Now there are audio problems and if you quit the game there's a blank screen for like 5min before finally getting back to the home screen.

    Maybe you were accidentally trying to play an Xbox game.

    That would be ridiculous. This PS3 is 6 months old. I've barely used it really and I've never left it on for too long. Christ I've left my 360 on for days.

    How should I know? Nothing from the troubleshooting has worked. If the BluRay drive was dead, I don't think it would be able to even read the disc.

    Is there a way to save my save files or am I going to have to kiss those fuckers goodbye?

    you really only have two options, send it to them or risk fixing it yourself.

    Well, I'm not paying 1/2 the cost of a brand new one with a larger HDD, just to have this one refurbed. Seems a little ridiculous. I'd attempt to fix it myself at this point if I knew what the fuck I was doing.

    if you are too lazy to read up on fixing it your self, than I suggest just selling the broken unit on craigslist and using that money (probably around 70 - 100$) plus the 150$ you would spend repairing it to buy a new one.

    What good is having the receipt? Don't they charge you $150 regardless anyways?

    Really? Did not know. So within a year free fix?
    I put my receipt inside the box the same day I bought it.
