    More then likely something is broken or bend out of whack. How many times a week to you unplug your power cord? Which end are you having problems with?

If you cant get ANY power it may be a ps3 power supply you need to replace.
IF NOT get a new cord.

If you mean power cord you can use a standard cord for a Computer power supply. If it is the video you can use a PS3 standard video or hdmi cable.

Playstation not receiving power


This could be a problem with your AC power cord, try these fixes. If they do not work you ca contact sony at:

www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3
or
www.uk.playstation.com/help-support/ps3


  • The console might not be turned on. Turn on the console using the main power switch on the back of the console.
  • Make sure the AC power cord is securely connected.
  • Visually inspect the AC power cord for damage. Do not use if frayed, cut, or damaged in any way.
  • Confirm the wall power outlet is active (receiving power). Try a different power outlet.
  • If possible, test the power cord by connecting it to a different PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If possible, try another AC power cord on your PLAYSTATION 3.
  • If you experienced a power surge, shortage, or a lightning storm in your geographical area recently, this may have affected the PLAYSTATION 3 power supply and the PLAYSTATION 3 may need service.
  • Make sure the vents are not obstructed in anyway.
  • Make sure there is adequate ventilation for the PLAYSTATION 3. There should be at least four (4) inches of clearance between the air vents on the system and any walls, televisions, entertainment centers, etc. Otherwise the unit may not function properly due to what are actually environmental issues.

    Can't watch dvds on playstation 3


    No, but you do have to select HDMI output in the settings in the PS3 menu and make sure the TV is switched to the correct HDMI input ( Whatever one you plugged your PS3 into)

    DNS Error 80710102


    This is a really annoying bug that’s present even in the current version (2.10 as of this post) of the Playstation 3 system software. When I got my PS3 earlier this month, it was using the oldest version, 1.10, but I couldn’t update it because the DNS error was preventing me from getting online.
    After searching online for that error number, I came across a few sites that said the PS3’s DNS server needs to match that of your router. I made the appropriate changes to the PS3 and off I went. There was still a problem, though: it wouldn’t login to the Playstation Network, even though it passed the DNS test. Augh.
    Some of the more silly answers I found included resetting your modem, calling your provider, telling the PS3 to automatically find all settings, and turning off your firewall. None of these make any difference.
    The only option I had left was to download the update to a USB flash drive. This is a poor solution because not everyone HAS a flash drive. (You could probably do this using the 80 gig model’s card reader, though I wouldn’t know about that.) Anyway, here is a simplified version of the directions I followed:
    1. Make a new directory in the flash drive named PS3, then one named UPDATE (both must be in all caps).
    2. Save PS3UPDAT.PUP to /PS3/UPDATE
    3. Plug the flash drive into the console, then from the XMB: Settings -> System Update -> Update via Storage Media
    After this is done, you can delete the stuff you created on the flash drive.
    Now, you’re using the most recent software and it still keeps giving you DNS errors? The only solution I’ve found so far is to keep trying to login until it works. That may sound like a shitty answer, but it’s the only one I’ve found that works with any certainty. After searching for a good amount of time and trying every suggestion, brute force is the most dependable answer I found.
    Update: I’ve been using OpenDNS (208.67.222.222 & 208.67.220.220) for a couple of weeks now with little luck, but some people say it helps.
    Update 2: I solved the mystery: spanning tree. Spanning Tree Protocol is a protocol for preventing loops in a network of switches. I had to turn on spanning-tree portfast on the port my PS3 is plugged into. Chances are this solution is completely unhelpful for most people, but I’m putting it up here anyway, just in case.

    Sony PS3 will not power up -


    1. First check the power cable by removing it and then plugging it in again. You may find it is not pushed in far enough.
    If that is good then follow these steps
    • The console might not be turned on. Turn on the console using the main power switch on the back of the console.
    • Make sure the AC power cord is securely connected.
    • Visually inspect the AC power cord for damage. Do not use if frayed, cut, or damaged in any way.
    • Confirm the wall power outlet is active (receiving power). Try a different power outlet.
    • If possible, test the power cord by connecting it to a different PLAYSTATION 3.
    • If possible, try another AC power cord on your PLAYSTATION 3.
    • If you experienced a power surge, shortage, or a lightning storm in your geographical area recently, this may have affected the PLAYSTATION 3 power supply and the PLAYSTATION 3 may need service.
    • Make sure the vents are not obstructed in anyway.
    • Make sure there is adequate ventilation for the PLAYSTATION 3. There should be at least four (4) inches of clearance between the air vents on the system and any walls, televisions, entertainment centers, etc. Otherwise the unit may not function properly due to what are actually environmental issues.
    I hope this helped
    cheers
