Is it difficult to replace the power supply in a PS3?

I used to pull my original xbox apart and swap out parts. Do you suggest I replace the power supply for my PS3 on my own or outsource it for repair?Where can I buy PS3 parts/power supply?

I Definitely Suggest you just buy a new power supply,,,, If your power supply fails, you can have multiple issues with your ps3... Being as expensive as they are... i would just say your best bet is to buy a new power supply... As for where to buy... Definately ebay... way cheaper!... make sure you check people's ratings before buying.... If you dont have access to ebay, then i suggest hitting up a electronics store that sells ps3's... if anything it can be ordered in... :D Good luck... Please rate! :)

I have a ps3 2 days ago we had a power outage and I tried to use it today and it only turns on for about 1 second then shuts off again I cannot get the disk out anymore can you help pleeeeze


If you had a power outage then more than likely the power supply was damaged. You'll need to take the PS3 apart and swap out the old one with a new one.

Do i have to flash a new dvd rom drive if i replace it with an old brioken 1 on the xbox 360?


Not if you have the same model. Meaning if it's a Samsung, you replace it with a Samsung. Or a Liteon with a LiteOn.

All you have to do is take apart the drives and swap the circuit boards. They are on the bottom of the drive and it's not difficult.

If you need to buy a drive, I recommend http://parts.consolerepairguy.com They are about $30 there.

I repair them, so I'm sure about this.

Lightening struck my Xbox original


Replacing the power supply inside the xbox has always worked for me. If you want a cheap power supply buy one of ebay. Make sure you buy the right model. There are three different types. 1.0-1.1, 1.2 - 1.5 & 1.6 power supply. To tell which one you have look at the wire where it plugs into the motherboard. If it's a single row of pins, then you need the 1.0-1.1 power supply. If it's a double row and has an orange wire anywhere on it then you need the 1.2 - 1.5 board. No orange and you need the 1.6 board. You can also find a picture here: http://www.llamma.com/xbox/Mods/xbox_power_supply_conversion.htm
on how to distinquish the three apart. You can also fork out the extra $10 bucks or so by buying a universal power supply board. Replace the board and I'll guarantee you that you will get some more play time out of the system.

Japanese ps3 power supply


US and Japanese power supplies are the same. The 60GB PS3's run hotter than any other models. I've never seen a power supply get hot, but if it is then it's probably a good idea to swap it since heat is the number one 60GB killer.

I just created a blog that has a ton of usefull PS3 info and tips. Please check it out here:

No power to PS3, no lights on front panel


You both have bad power supplies inside your PS3 units. If they are still under warranty you can get the units exchanged by Sony. If not you can sell for parts or repair yourself. If replacing the power supply yourself, you can find a great PS3 disassembly tutorial at www.llama.com You will only need to go as far as opening the unit and swapping the power supply with a new or used one that works. I hope this helps you both. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Power buttone notworking for Emachine T3624


Power problems are not always the power supply. A small amount of power is sent to the mobo to perform self test, and if the computer is ready, it signals the supply to turn on the rest of the power. That's to prevent a small problem from cascading into a large one. But it is difficult to troubleshoot. The problem could be with the mobo or the CPU. That's why you need to find a reliable repair shop with people who know what they are doing...not someone who only knows how to swap parts and calls that "troubleshooting."
