If you got the warranty at an EB Games store for instance, we take care of it. Otherwise, warranty issues go to Sony. They'll send you a refurb.

Im not sending the controller only the unit and power cable cable.

When someone on the phone says " We will send you a brand new unit" The better of Brother Corey will get upset and call the president of Sony BY GOD!!!

Well, with the old PS2s it was either...

A.) Controller cheat codes messing up the software.
B.) DVDs wearing the drive out early.

I haven't had a chance to really look at the slims at work. What message is it giving Corey?

the no fans is whats going to do it... it will drastically shorten the life span.. which they probably intended to do. i also heard the "multitap" or whatever doesnt work on the slim version.

the reason it wasn't working.. the disc spinner wasn't contacting my game discs.. it'd spin, but it wouldn't spin the disk.. an extra CD went in
and its been fine since

my slim PSone never had an issue.. and being a role playing gamer it'd gotten plenty of use

I still use it now and again when I travel to hotels and such..
it doesn't have a fan.. it gets really hot if I set it on carpet, but it stays decently cool if I keep it on a box or something..

then again it has like a tenth the processing power of a PS2 and only reads music and PS discs
