Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 Nothing..No Power Light.. Nothing

Hello,
I've recently found my PS3 Dead in the living roon.. No indication that its getting power, although I know its being fed power from the cord. I've never cracked open a PS3 before, but willing at this point since its out of warranty & Sony is willing to fix it for $150 (including S&H) regardless of its condition. So, I don't need to worry about voiding any warranty by breaking the seal. I would appreciate anyones input on this.. Maybe its just a replaceable fuse?

    I decided to send the unit out as I found myself so inept that I couldn't find the way to open it up to look for a fuse (if one existed). Thanks for trying!

Hi there, by the sounds of it you could have faulty fuses, Whether its inside the console itself or inside the Power adaptor its Uncertain. Before opening up Your PS3 i would suggest Checking the fuse in the power adaptor to make sure that is not fried. if it isnt. then it must be something to do with the power input to your PS3 Device. it could be either the Fuse or The transistors on the Power input Circuit. When you Pop open your PS3, Go straight to the back-end where the power input is located, and see if any of the fuses or transistors look fried, if they are. then that is where your fault lies !

Its dead, no power indicators, doesnt beep, its dead ?


unless your wall socket or the fuse in your lead has blown, the only other thing I would suggest would be the PSU.

If you search PS3 PSU replacement you should find a video guide how to do so

of course when it comes down to weather it would be worth it that is entirely up to you the average cost is about 20 to 50 depending where you get it from.

You could always try a system reset:

Starting with the PS3 off... Hold Power button on PS3 for 10 seconds. When you hear the second beep, it has been reset...

Heard a pop while running ps3 then went dead. Have no red light or anything when turning it on. I've tried everything.


Unfortunately that sounds like your PSU (power supply) shorted, contact Sony to see about warranty replacement if it's still available...

Playstation 3 wont work it gets to the wavy screen a message says the PS3 was not turner off properly' then i try to restart but nothing happens just a blank screen? Help


Hello

Hello,

Put your PS3 in Standby Mode. The first thing your going to want to know is your model number. It can be found on the back panel of the PS3 on the serial number label, and it will begin with CECH. Example - Serial: XXXXXXXXXXXX-CECHXXX -

For models: CECHA01, BO1, E01, E01MG, G01, H01, H01MG, K01, LO1, AND P01, it will have a power switch on the back. Flip it off then back on and you will have a solid red indicator light on the front.

For models: CECH-2001A and 2001B, press the power button on the front until the indicator light turns red. If all else fails unplug the power cord and plug it back

Time to enter Safe Mode. Press and hold your finger over the power button on the front until you hear three beeps and the indicator light goes back to red. Then release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds the third and final beep will sound then the indicator light will return to red.)

Press and hold your finger over the power button again until you hear a quick double beep. The release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds you will hear the double beep.)

You will then see this screen. "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button".

Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the front of your PS3 and the top of your game controller, (between the left and right bumpers). Then Press the PS button in the center of the controller.

You will then see this screen. -REMINDER: -BY DOING THE FOLLOWING ALL OF YOUR DATA ON YOUR PS3 WILL BE LOST, YOUR ONLINE STATS ARE ON THE NETWORK SO YOU WILL GET THAT STUFF BACK, INCLUDING GAMES AND ADDONS YOU BOUGHT FROM THE PSN.-

Select option number 5. (Restore PS3 System). Then select yes to perform step. You will then see this screen. "The hard disk's file system is corrupt and will be restored.

The PS3 will then restart. You will see many different languages, all that is is saying is, "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button". Press the PS button and set your settings when it finishes it will start up and its fixed!

I wish you good luck.

PS3 40G completely unresponsive.


I just had this problem happen to me. I'm looking into it as well. Exactly what happened to mine, except I was playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 online.

Wont turn on at all. no red, yellow or green light. nothing. Is it dead?


This is pretty indicative of a "Blown" Power Supply. First though check all connections IN. This is a common problem. Usually simply fixed by PSU replacement.

Wont turn on has blinking red light wont stayed powered


Hello, I'm sorry to say this but the blinking red light is = the light of Doom. Your PS3 is dead. This is somewhat like the XBOX Red ring of death.Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony and they will send you a new or refurbshed one. Your ps3 is one in a billion (according to Sony). North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721

My ps3 wont power up


try powering the system up by HOLDING the on;off button , it will reset all your audio and video settings . then plug the system using the AV cables (default) .

else, you should take it to an assastance centre for hardware issues checking . can be a problem with your RAM or GPU units that makes the system unable to startup it's firmware .
