My fat PS3 just had the same issue after 6 or so years, was wondering the same thing (sorry no answer from me). --- www.myspace.com/thecloserofficial - my band, check us out. (I play drums) PSN= Triazic
when you call them or contact them, they'll just get a few things from you and send you a box in the mail with a return sticker. Then you pretty much just place your ps3 and a copy of your receipt in the box and send it back, and they will have it fixed.
Also, is it bad I have copied some TV shows and Movies to the HDD. Sure enough there downloaded (although a bunch of them I do actually own on DVD or blu ray), I don't want that to be the reason they wouldn't fix it if I sent it them :\ and I'm not sure my PS3 will stay on long enough for me to do the deleting before sending, last time I tried (yesterday) it turned off after being on for about 7 seconds. --- _____|\,,.,.\o/.,.,,____Shark!!! http://www.kusohappens.com // Blogs
If you haven't seen it yet, it's just below the Canadian one, there's a link for people outside of canada/states.
I don't think you'd get in trouble, I highly doubt they'd even look through your hard drive.
Have you tried leaving it off for awhile, putting it in an open space and seeing if that keeps it on for any longer? Searching google all I can find is that it might be overheating, or did overheat and messed something up.
Wow you're right. I expected it to be a 2 year Warranty on the slim's (figured they'd have some belief in them lasting).
Hmm, is it a set price they offer for a repair/ refurb? or is it a case-by-case thing? If so maybe I'm best just considering it a write-off and saving up for another PS3 over the next couple of months?
Oh and thanks for all the replies so far, mucho appreciated. --- _____|\,,.,.\o/.,.,,____Shark!!! http://www.kusohappens.com // Blogs
