I sent my PS3 in for repairs a couple of days ago. The repair center received it today, and when I looked at the status of the repair, this is what it said: The unit you are inquiring about was opened and assigned on 11/22/2008. Please allow 7-15 business days from the time we received your unit to complete your order not including shipping and handling time.

What does unit was opened and assigned mean? And in how long should I realistically get my PS3 back?

What type of mail and speed do they use to ship replacement PS3's back to customers in the USA?

It means it's been assigned for someone to look at...now add the amount of time it took for sony to receive to the maximum amount of time sony says it'll take to fix it (so 15 days max) and that's the longest you'll be waiting

you do realise you could usually have just unplugged it and then plugged it back in right? that's worked for me. also, one time I turned it upside down and it got a circuit to reconnect.

Mine to about a week. 3 days for the box to come. It took 3 days for them to get it and they sent me one back immediately as a 1-day shipment.
