The PlayStation 3, even with the latest price cut, is still a pretty expensive piece of machinery. If you really want to get the most out of your game system, then you will probably end up playing it long past the 1 year initial warranty. But problems still arise past then, like the infamous yellow light of death- perhaps a sister to the Xbox 360′s red ring of death- or the intermittent freezing during games. Is there any way you can repair your PS3 from these problems?
Well yes, you could do one of two things:
1. Send your machine to Sony for repair or
2. Check out online manuals that specialize in PS3 repair
Let’s go over both options for a minute. While it appears as though option 1 would be the best approach, it’s not actually so. Why? Because PS3 repair isn’t on the top of Sony’s list of worries. Not to mention that, unless you got the extended warranty, your gaming console is not going to be cheap to repair. After mailing off your console you’ll get an estimate that can go as high as $150! Let’s not forget that there’s a 3-6 week waiting period before you get your console back. Imagine waiting a month and a half to play PS3 games or enjoy a movie. That’s far too long of a wait in my opinion.
But what makes PS3 repair manuals so much better? Well, for starters, a lot of the online manuals and guides will give you step by step ways to fix your PS3 on your own. You won’t have to pay anyone anything and you definitely won’t have to ship your gaming console off to another city just to wait 3 weeks (at least) to get results. No, there are plenty of repair manuals for the yellow light of death, overheating, and freezing glitches amongst other problems the PS3 faces. There’s actually very little wait if you use the guides effectively immediately. Most manuals also come with better customer support, simply because they aren’t as overloaded as Sony, so if you don’t understand the guide the first time, you can ask questions and have a turn around time that’s a day or two at the max.
If you really want to get your PlayStation 3 repaired without huge costs or a long wait time, then give online PlayStation 3 repair manuals a shot.
