@defaulttag: Yea, the warranty's still active, and sending it in to Sony is probably what I'm gonna end up doing. @shadows_kill: I don't think I could part with my PS3 phat though /: Not to mention I really do not have an extra $300 lying around .___.
@TotalEklypse: O_O thanks for the info, now I'm rethinking everything, lol. I'll probably just end up giving it to Sony now /: And lose my accounts?! Okay, yea I'll definitely be deactivating all those. Who knew having your disc reader malfunction was such a pain in the ass? (>_<)
@TotalEklypse: Thanks for the info :) I found a place near where I live that repairs consoles, I'm going take into them this week and see what they say. I really don't feel like paying $150 for Sony to do something that someone else can do for half the cost. Last night I was really upset and so close to just cracking it open because I thought my warranty was up, but turns out I still have a few months to go. So until then, I'd rather have someone who knows what they're doing look at it...
@TotalEklypse: No, I don't hear anything at all. It's like the disc is just sitting in there doing nothing. I'm looking into taking it to a console repair place, because I don't know what I'm doing and I don't want to eff it up even more.
" @chubisaur: Yeah, reformating it won't work . I tired myself but to no avail. The best thing to do at the moment is to either try cleaning the lens yourself or if you can take to like a console repair expert, you will probably be able to get it fixed and it most likely wouldn't of had to of cost you much either. You would still have to wait for your console to get fixed though. I will say this though, check and make sure your warranty isn't up yet. "
A console repair expert? That sounds promising. Will definitely be checking that out, thanks :) O, and I found out that I still have a few months left on that warranty, so I will also be giving Sony a call.
