So I just sent my Vita in for repairs...

10 replies 284 views Edited Jan 3, 2013

Now, the main question I have is, due to the silicion casing thingo stretching, I had superglued the portion near the camera down to it wouldn't interfere with it due to the streching. Well now I obviously removed and some of the super glue, but back to the question I had pushed off for some reason:

 

Can that superglue void the warranty?

Part of me assumes not but I'm not sure. Though I really don't mind too much if I do have to pay for it to be serviced. And I'm pretty sure the glue isn't the cause of the reason I sent it in for repairs due to the fact it was on it's surface for most of the time I had owned it. So what do you guys think? Can the superglue on the Vita void the warranty?

Not sure what will happen... What I do know is, generally they don't repair your unit and send it back to you. They just send you a refurbished unit and the one you send them eventually becomes a refurb once it is fixed up.

I think you voided the warranty because everything needed to be in its natural state-meaning anything that Sony considers damage by you INSTEAD of them they will make you liable. If something was wrong with it you should've sent it directly to Sony so they would fix it at no cost.

Wrong. 
The warranty is still in place as long as he did not open up the system or do anything to the system that would have caused the issue it was sent in for repairs for. 
If he sent it in because the system simply stopped working, unless Sony can prove that it was the super glues fault that the system stopped working then they will still have to service it according to what the agreement says the user is entitled to. 

Super glue on the outer body is not something that can cause an issue with the software unless the glue leaked in(Which it probably didnt unless he put glue in the connection port then well, if he did he probably ate the glue too.)

Tl;dr
No, should be fine, don't put glue on your **bleep** vita though. Goddamn.
