I bought a ps3 with no HDD but bought a HDD for it to install myself since its pretty easy. Now my problem is that the seller said it has no power video. If I send it in and pay $100 service fee, will Sony fix it even though the original HDD isn't there? Or can I do that whole reset process myself to fix it?
I haven't heard anything good about Sony's repair services, just a heads up. And yeah, I'm also wondering how much this ps3 was, because between the HDD, and repair services you're already fast approaching the cost of a new PS3. You could get the latest redesign for $230.
