Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

What can I do?

I was in the middle of a game and suddenly the lights went out on my house and when it came back my tv wasn't working (I think because of a short circuit) and the same for my PS3 it doesn't even start. Does the PS3 have a circuit breaker, how can I fix this?

There is a ceramic fuse (10A 250V) that blew on your power supply. You have three options 1) send it in to a repair shop 2) buy a power supply and fix it yourself (why not, it's already broken whats the worst you could do) make sure you get the right model. the model is on the bottom of the power supply itself or 3) Fix the power supply. You need to know a little about soldering but its the only white fuse on the board you cant miss it. Good luck
In the future you can go to EllisonsMP3repair.com and talk to a tech that knows what there talking about.

Sorry, the PS3 does not have a circuit breaker. Most likely when the power came back on the surge blew the power supply. You can get it serviced by Sony or replace the power supply your self.

My Nintendo 64 when I was in the middle of a game it froze and the screen went all black and then it went to the tv screen saying no signal then.


Well one time I had this problem with my Nintendo 64 console when I was in the middle of playing perfect dark the screen had froze went black and then it went to saying no signal on the tv screen. The console did not over heat to cause this problem. I thought that it had died on me but I had tried a new expansion pack and it was fine after that. SOmetimes the expansion packs can blank out in the middle of a game play they can die without a warning then. Or it can say expansion pack needed or it will give the white flash that it is turning on but nothing happens after that then.

You must go back to the origional place you used the HDMI last, and do all the setting up & hook up again, to get a picture, THEN set it to component, or AV, and THEN turn off shut down, Now it will work at the other place OK.
