Sounds bad :eek: I'd phone Sony immediately and get a replacement sent out....oh and make sure that they are aware COD 4 is in the machine and you want it back.

On second thought if the machine turns on for a couple of seconds can you not get the disk ejected in this time i.e. press the eject button when powering up??

No one on here can do anything for you beyond saying either go and get it swapped out at the shop you bought it from or call Sony who will swap it out for you.

All you can do is ring Sony and when you do tell them that the disc is still in there, will take about 6 weeks to get the game back but you should get a replacement console in a couple of days.

It can take 6 to 8 weeks for Sony to return games :thumbsdow Think you best ring them, how well ventilated do you keep your ps3?

Do you not have Google ?

If you've still got the box with the manuals it has the number in there.
You would be far better taking it to the shop though, it would be swapped out there and then for a new one and probably an 80Gb version too.

That's good news mate. Any chance they can do you a new keyboard as well as yours seem duff, it keeps replacing 'aight' and 'eat' with the number 8 and the caps lock key seem to be stuck on.


:D tru :rotfl:
