Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
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?
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 !
