I have a broken 40gb ps3 with a faulty bluray drive but i have a serial for a ps3 slim which is in warranty.
If i call sony and give them the slim serial do you reckon that they will swap it at the door.

I saw a serial floating about a while ago but cant seem to find it.
Anyone had any experiance with this guys?
Thanks

when the courier took mine he checked the serial, not sure if thats the norm or not.
 
ive done it a couple of times in the past, always worked for me, i exchanged an old 60gb for the new 250gb slim, courier just exchanged at the door, sony tell u that the courier will check the serial but they never have with me, just give it a try u have got nothing to lose and could end up with a new slim model, let us know how u get on

dont tell them that its a faulty blu ray though, cos they will just take it away and repair, u need to tell them it has ylod

Didnt work for me courier checked the number at the end it was the wrong one so i suppose if i swap stickers of the serial it should work :)
 
what did they say when they checked the serial
 
so if i got a new serial of my sisters ps3 and stook that on mine would that work ?

also would they be able to block her console using that serial if they found out
 
which department or number do i ring for this and does the courier check the warrenty seal at all or just the serial
