    I used to repair / downgrade PSP consoles. Each broken part I got I would make a new PSP with full of broken parts. At the time their was a trick to getting brand new / refurb'd consoles from Sony so I was exchanging with the ones full of broken parts, getting a brand new PSP, raped it for parts and done the same again. The parts were pretty expensive, $50-$80 per LCD, $10-$15/case, $10 joystick, $30-$60 original battery (I was swapping with fakes) lol.

    It worked well for me as I was position number 1 in Google for around 5 months for PSP Repair and PSP repairs and repair broken PSP for searches in the UK and position 1-5 on .com.

    The trick was that you phone them, tell them it wont turn on, no light when charging, no sound when it's on, it's within its one year warranty and then give them a serial number of a PSP that was in warranty. They never used to check for duplicate serials but they logged addresses so that only 2 PSP's could be done per address. This is when I started using friends addresses lol.

    I was repairing 10+ PSP's per week and also unbricking 50+ per week at $50 per go, worked very well for a while but then it all died down when I got knocked off topspot :(

    thats not scamming. they sell a pruduct for a lot of money for an item that should work for at least 10 years.. but they only give waranty for 1 year.

    if you had to buy a new 300 dollar mower every year, that would be insane. they have a responsibilaty to provide a decent and money worth product.

    they scam people that way every day, so rape them every chance you get.

    here in the netherlands we actualy have a law for this.
    if you buy a new item, and the average expected life of that product is 7 years, but the waranty you get is only 1 year, and it breaks after 5 years, the seller is still obligated to repair or replace the item free of charge or for a small fee. wich actualy makes the warrenty timeline you get from the seller kind of useless.
    all about consumer protection.
