Warranty Claims

All the products listed on our site has a 3-month replacement warranty unless specified otherwise.

With PlayStation 3 YLOD and XBox360 RROD there is only a 1 month warranty as there is a manufacturing and design fault. When the Console is running for a long period of time it generates alot of heat stress between the CPU, GPU and Motherboard. The fan unit, the heatsink and heatsink compound responsible for the heat extraction is not sufficient for a console running for a long period of time. This causes the solder on the motherboard to dry and oxidise causing cracking which in turns causes poor connection between all the connectors. There is a chance that this will come back even when using an external fan to help cool the PlayStation 3.   

If your product becomes faulty in the first 3-months of your purchase, just send an email to us with your receipt/order number describing in detail the issue, we will then contact you with regards to the return process. You MUST send us back the suspected faulty product within 3 days of us advising you to do so. We can then examine it and if it’s found to be faulty we will replace with a brand new one and post back to you using the same method that was used to send the item to you in the first place.

IMPORTANT: Our products all carry a warranty of 3 or 12 months. However this warranty applies only if the product has not been opened, soldered, modified etc. by the end user. Lenses require installation and calibration which can easily damage the product. Therefore, they are not falling under our warranty rules, and can NOT be exchanged / returned.

If your console is being re-repaired we will inform you if it is covered under warranty as there could be issues with other components of the system. We will test and confirm the issue and advise accordingly. We DO NOT cover warranty on the parts that were not tested/repaired by us in the first place.
