Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Help!!!!! I cannot hook my PS3 to my Sony Grand Wega HDTV. First, I turned off the power strip that both my TV, PS3, Onkyo receiver and comcast cable box were plugged into. Then I attached the component cables to my tv then the ps3. Next I plugged the power cord into the back of the ps3. Then I plugged the ps3 into the power strip and it sparked like crazy and burned the heck out of the grounded plug!! so, tried going another way. I started over. The last thing I plugged in was the AV output on the backside of the ps3 and bam, spark again! This time it charred the gold plating on the av connector! I called sony and I'm waiting for a call back from a "Senior" Technicion. What the hell is going on? This is the second PS3 that this has happened? Basically, I cannot have the ps3 plugged into my tv and wall at the same time?
U have a grounding issue with either ur cable or dish box,.and if u plug anything up to it it will spark adn shock and if u do it over and over it will fry the system,. hope this helps
