Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The power supply failed ( stepping down from 240v - 100v) while i was in a game. So the PS3 powered off instantly, and it will not turn on properly again. After i replaced the step down transformer and plugs everything back in. The red light will still on when i plug it into a new step down(indicationg the power supply in the PS3 is not fried yet?). But when i try to start it up and i could hear the fans firing up, it will put itself into standby in abt 1 secs. And obviosuly failing to eject my disc inside.
Okay, try to turn it on with the sixaxis, but hold the ps button for 5-8 seconds: I think that can reset the PS config settings. or something like that. Also call the support number (800-488-7669) If it's under warranty (which it should be since the system hasn't even been out for a year), I'd suggest trading it in for another one, but keep the hard drive or have them transfer the info, and get them to give you another game. If it stepped-down it may have browned-out, which means it may have fried the chips. It sounded like the PS3 tried to save it by turning off automatically, but if you're having troubles starting the OS, it sounds like it may have spiked before stepping down. Yeah, I'd get another one since it's under warranty. No use ice skating uphill.
