Help needed

Post by SBennett316 on Fri Jan 29, 2010 11:49 am

scratch

My PS3 Is broke. Im really gutted I think I wore it out playing Fifa 10. I got home from work and an error message came up on screen. I first thought it was Fifa so tried Call of Duty but no good. I then wiped the hardrive but still no good. I rang Sony and they said it was laser but my DVD's work so Im not so sure. I got it 2007 and it's the bulky one. Anyway Sony want £130 for a refurb model they say it will be brand new but an older model. They say it cannot be fixed. So any help would be great as you know Im not in PK's league when it comes to IT. Really Really gutted no Fifa 10 great start to weekend.

mate i got my sister a slimline for her kid for christmas for £225...was thinking of upgrading my own for a slimline too

i wouldnt pay £130 for a refurbed older one...no way

your in walsall right?...take it to the shop in the quasar centre, game shop, i think they do a repair service there

better to pay to have it repaired if you cant afford to buy a new one...no way would i pay £130 to buy the older type, and only a refurb...feck me you can buy a brand new 360 for that

On the way back from Blues VS Spurs I picked up a PS3 from Comet its the slim 250gb £280 had to be done can't go weekend without PS3 [lol]. Got back and just about to take Fifa out of broken console it starts working I can't believe it but error message pops up. So using new one cheers for that Scoobs yeah I live in Walsall I will take it down and see what they say. I did think about the Sony offer but I think you are right they said it would be like a brand new but I have my doubts. It's weird though I looked at the usual retailers and PS3 are the same price everywhere. X Box and Wii are different prices.

My PS3 started overheating and turning itself off after two minutes. Took it in to Game the fisrt day the slimlines were out and did a part exchange. New slimline PS3 and a game cost me the same as the refirb model would have. Result!

Ill take a look Ill probally throw it away though. Everyone is buying slim so I doubt anyone would want it. Im pretty sure it's the laser I tried taking out the hardrive but still no good. Plays DVD's fine but not games. By the way the Carling Cup Final Programme is going to be a 50th anniversary collectors edition. Im probally the only one who collects football programmes so Im sad [lol].

Do you know where Cannock is mate? I took to a mobile phone stall there? When I get it back Ill get you his details if you want mate. Pissed about Spurs and Villa we need to get a run going. I think Im the only Spurs fan who thinks Defoes penalty appeal was a joke.

Treasure them Bates one day you can pass them on to your future kids etc etc. If you look around some programmes are like gold. My oldest one is from 1960-61 when we did the double. That is my fave because we won't win the league in my lifetime. this is where I get my programmes from when I can't get to matches http://www.programmemaster.com/

it was a penalty technically...but i agree with you...it would have been soft

weve got united tomorrow night...then thats it for us...out of the last games only man city and chelsea to play and the rest are bottom half

this is it for villa...how much do we want it?...are we good enough when the pressures on?


I do know cannock very well yes mate
