Gamestop mod? - Page 3

post #21 of 36
Gamestop will not give you a new system. As an ex-employee, that simply will not happen. They will refund your money (within 30 days) or exchange it.

This is most likely what will happen.

It's also not shocking at all as many Gamestop simply turn the console on to check for RROD, sometimes not even checking to see if the warranty seal is intact.

Only applies if there were seals on it to begin with.

Gamestop doesn't care if you open them? How can you prove you didn't just do the mod yourself?

If the seals were already broken when you bought it how can they know any better? If they didn't put new seals on it they can't prove you split open the system.

The person who modded it before the OP broke the original seals. So unless Gamestop put new seals on it it's their fault for selling a open system.

Because I did not crack it open until I tried the HDMI and it did not work.

The seal was broken when I bought the system. I would not open a console unless there is some thing broken on it and I opened it to find out whats wrong.(provided it was not under any warranty)

Return it and demand a new system, You'll come off as a jerk but (and this is coming from someone who has worked in electronics retail for years) you are well within reason to demand so.

Also if they give you problems fill out their little survey they tend to hi-lite on your receipt. Retail stores live and die by those surveys (Which are basically like report cards)

Fill it out and explain WHY and you might be surprised what happens.
I bought my PSP-1001 used and I have never had a problem with it. I don't think I will get a new system for having bought a used system from them.

Why haven't you taken it back yet? The longer you wait the more suspicious you look.
