No it does not. It connects to the mains socket with an AC power cord.

I have a sony tv and a ps3 and it will not pick up my ps3 how do i fix it


You can try to reset the video settings on the ps3. If you have had it hooked up to a hd tv it may be defaulted to the HD signal and need to reset the video output to be the right format for your tv. To do this simply hold the power button down when you turn the power on to the ps3. You will press to turn the power on and then keep the button pressed until you hear the unit make a beep (about 3 - 5 seconds) then let go. This resets the video settings to match what the unit is plugged into currently.
You can also try a factory reset, I have that listed below if the video reset fails to fix the issue.


This will wipe all the saved games and data from the machine but I have found it to correct most issues with the ps3.

You will need to push the power button to turn on the unit, but keep the power button held down for about 30 seconds. You will hear a beep (resetting the video settings), then 2 more beeps. After the 3rd beep you can let go of the power button and it should take you to the set up screens like you just got it out of the box.

You will lose everything you have saved doing this but it seems to make the system run just like out of the box again. If this does not fix the problem then it most likely is a hardware issue and may need serviced or replaced.

50' philips plasma tv has sound but picture is distorted


I sugest you to change the video resolution settings on the PS-3 to see if TV sets to any one resolution...if you have any other video out (analog from PS3)...connect the out to TV and check video at different resolutions. If PS3 has Deep Color settings turn it OFF.

Ps3 shut down and red light just blinks and will not start again


if it pops when you flip the on switch then your power supply box is blown. You will need to get a new power supply box or send it in to sony or send it in for repair.

No power to my PS3


You need to go onto ebay and purchase a ps3 power supply... any one will work. Then you need to void the warrenty seal and pull the rubber piece out. you need a special screw driver or a smaller flat head to unscrew the screw and slide the lid off.. it goes left to right and might need a bit of force the first time you pop it off. once the cover/lid is off you will see another cover that has 6 screws in it.. take them out... look at the back of the ps3 push up on the lid and push forward. This way it will unlatch and the sides and the front of it will unhook.. like opening up a book
you will see the disc drive on the left and a chrome box on the right of the ps3. The chrome box needs to be unscrewed. There is the card reader that will need to be unscrewed but you wont need to take it off just move it and make sure not to pull the cable out!

Ok now if you are looking at the ps3 with the chrome box on the right I want you to look all around the chrome box on all sides.. there may be wires attatched to the side with white tape... take the tape off... I almost ripped it out once. (its only taped to the box and does not actually go into the power supply) Ok now unhook the wires from the back and the front.. one goes into the mother board and the other goes into the back of the ps3... then put a new power supply in.. I have to go and this was a quick how to hope it helps!
