I would have thought that the place of purchase would be your best bet but they'll try and fob you off I reckon.

Call Sony though if not, as you were an early adopter to the console and all you wanna do is get it fixed so your son can play the new fifa they'll sort you out.

A new console not lasting two years is pony.

I'll see what the repair guys come up with, he said he has a 50/50 success rate with blue light of death
I don't mind paying to get it fixed but if it's knackered I don't really want to have to replace it less than 2 years old
Bear in mind I may have bought it launch day but he wasn't given it til Xmas day so it's even younger that 2 years

But I would mind paying for it to get it fixed, if it could be fixed or even replaced for nothing. It's not an exorbitant amount the repair guy is asking for but free is better tbf tbh

Point of purchase saying they can't do anything
I was on the phone to Sony for 20 minutes only to be answered by Borat so I hung up and emailed them

Just been on to the repair guy and he says he's had it apart and there's a few problems with the board which he fixed and it's still not working
He says he has one last roll of the dice and he'll ring me back

Yeah they'll try and fob you off, I'd Google the blue light issue.and print off stuff. The product is not fit for purpose

Looks like they ( xtra vision) are replacing it tomorrow
One courier collects as soon as he has it another courier will dispatch or so they say.

Only thing I'm worried about is the repair guy had to break the warranty stickers, if it gets back to Sony before the new one is dispatched I could be in trouble

Hmm I though that, if it comes to it, just get it writing that the repair guy opened it up and you were just desperate to get it fixed etc for your son

Not in a day I wouldn't think. They used to pick up and collect at the same time though, so something has changed.

The guy, xtra vision wasn't entirely sure if it would be collected and dropped at the same time so maybe Sony will do it that way and he was just covering his Arse

I've just boxed it up in its original bix and wrapping and the repair managed to save one of the two warranty stickers

Ahhh good, I'd had something similar happen to me when my Macbook went kaput, I found out a bit about warranties etc etc, I didn't get the outcome I wanted so I had something of a vested interest in this. Glad it worked out :AC9:

The only leap you will get will be the graphics, and they are excellent on the PS4.
