Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi There, Unfortunately for you, it seems that whilst Attempting to use the Higher voltage power supply on a Korean machine you could have damaged some of the internal electronics within the system itself, The fuses may not have stopped all of the current reaching the Inside of the Ps3, this could mean that you would have to potentially replace your console, Unfortunately Sony won't be able to solve your issues for some reason as you Purchased the PS3 in Korea, ive helped other people purchasing their PS3's from the far east (Korea,Japan etc) and when using their home power supply which can be upto Double the voltage of the PS3s, its frazzled the wiring inside of the console.
you should still try to call sony customer support, see if they have had a change of heart and decide to help people who have purchased imported consoles only to break them due to the voltages going through them, if not then im afraid you may need to replace your console !
Hope this Helps ?!
