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.

I would take it into Apple honestly. They've got all kinds of trick in the backroom to make things work again. And there is a chance it could be the game. Some apps are being known to stealing peoples info and wiping their phones...

there is a small round button (i think near the usb ports or under the disk drive) press that and hold the xbox button in in the middle of the controller. the lights on the xbox will spin and then the light on the controller and xbox should flash and it should be synced back to your xbox.

Screen suddenly blank on FujitsuSiemens AmiloProFB21


I am thinking that the Video Resolution went off, so you have to try entering Safe Mode by pressing F8 until you get a menu in black and white...

Then, select Safe Mode. That would reset your video resolution.

Then, reboot the system and let it boot normal. See if it is fixed.
