Warranty Sticker on my PS3 Slim

7 replies 1049 views Edited Jul 14, 2010

Okay, so I'm kind of nervous seeing as to how I bought a PS3 Slim around 2 months ago and i did a nice whole cleaning to get finger prints off or any dust in the back and i looked at the warranty sticker and it's scratched up from the bottom because of the metal rack the i keep it on (great for allowing air in and out, it's about 2 or more feet above the ground and around a foot and a half away from the walls in all directions).

 

I'm afraid that because of the minor damage done to the bottom of the sticker my warranty is voided. I can provide a picture if need, my current solution is a thin piece of cereal cardboard placed under the system where the sticker is to prevent further scratching.

 

Should i be worried???

Personally I think so long as it looks as though it hasn't been removed, which it probably still does then I think you'll be ok.

The friction from the rack on the sticker caused the back to stretch to the right. I'm just worried if anything goes wrong they might try to yank my leg and say, "Well, because it's damaged your warranty was voided.", which i doubt but the only reason i have doubt is because i owned 3 Xbox360's so... I'm just trying to make sure.

I'm not sure but maybe they would know if the screws had been taken out & also once they looked inside they would be able to see that nothing had been touched too?

Personally I wouldn't worry about it, because (a) Sony would probably repair it anyway within the first year, and after the first year it doesn't matter whether the sticker is intact or not, and (b) there isn't anything you can do about it now.

The actual size of the "damage" is this wide ========. I'm just kind of paranoid, I have too much faith in this PS3, don't want it to bust down on top of me.

 

EDIT: When i say that wide, i mean more of like the height of the damage(from top to bottom).

They might actually think that you modified the device. If it was moved at all or has any peeling I don't think they will repair it.
