    That's a good first guess in the troubleshooting process, but I've got a 60gig PS3 that I bought on ebay "As Is" I found that the problem is somewhere in the power supply. When the unit is plugged in and switched on, there isn't even a red light on the front.

    I opened the PS3 and found a fuse blown in the power supply, I replaced the fuse, but it blew again after powering on. I could only really troubleshoot up to the bridge rectifier, which is working fine, but after that things get a bit too complex for me. Anyone with more experience gotten any further than this?

    Thanks,
    -Chris

Make sure your cord is in all of the way. Happened to me once (well, twice).

    Oh, and I mean not only near the socket, but the end nearest the PS3 as well.

What is error code 8071053D


It could be that the console is not correctly syncing up to the network properly. This can happen in a number of ways, such as electric power issues that caused the console to turn off-and-on suddenly.

To solve it, you might have to do a hard reboot of the console. This is what to do:

  1. turn off your PS3 by using the power toggle switch at the back of the console and then unplugging the power cord.
  2. Once you do that, power off your modem (also the router if you have one as well) by unplugging the power supply.
  3. What about a minute or so then plug back your modem. Wait for it to sync for internet access.
  4. If you have a router, plug that in next and wait for it to sync as well. Otherwise skip to the next step.
  5. Once your modem and router devices are back on and you have Internet, go ahead and plug your PS3 back and turn it on.
  6. Access the Network Settings menu and see if you can create a new connection.

My son plugged the wrong power cord into Sony Playstation. now when he plugs the right cord in nothing happens. Is there a fuse or something that can be replaced?


is it the power cord i assume ? make sure the little flip power switch above the power cord is in on position. and u should have steady red light on front of ps3 when unit has power on. using a different power cord should not affect it but its not recommended . most ps3 uses a standard power cable.

My dad cant hook mine up for some reason


Ok

First, Turn your T.V. on and go to the input mode on the t.v.

Second, there should be two cords in the back of your playstation3.
The power cord and the input cord. These are the two basic cords to turn your playstation on.

Once you have them plugged in, on the back of your playstation 3 there should be a power switch right above the power cord. Click it on so that the I is down and the O is up. In the front of your Playstation, a red light will appear indicating that the Playstation is ready to be turned on. Tap the red light until it turns green ( this should only be tapped once) When it is green the system will go to the start-up menu and enjoy your Playstation 3

Wii console went dead... is there a fuse to reset the thing?


Try unplugging all the cords from the wii unit, wait about a minute or so, then reconnect the cords and power up. This should "reset" the system. A similar situation occurred with our system, and this was the solution we were told to try, and it worked. Good luck! :)
