Japanese ps3 power supply

Hi, i was wondering if the power supply for the ps3 60gb jp is suppose to be hot. I was testing out the ps3 for 30-40 min and touch the power supply, and it was hot, not warm just hot. So would it be wise to replace it? If so would a US power supply will work with my jp ps3

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:

60GB PS3 Making High Pitch Noise


sounds like a leaking capacitor to me you will need to have it looked at. and do it before the cap fails all together as it will be harder to find the downed cap afterwards.

PS3 wont stay on


Your PS3 may be overheating. Check the exhaust of the ps3 where the hot air comes out for any excessive dust. If you have a 60GB PS3, you can blow them out by turning off the PS3 by the back switch and then turning it on using the back switch with you finger on the eject button. The PS3 should beep 3 times and your fans should go at full tilt for about 30sec to 1 min.

Ps3 wont boot red flashing light all since download latest update


Hi,

Your console is going into protection mode to protect the from being damaged.

First thing do is check the ventilation, make sure the fans are running, make sure you have min of 1 foot around the PS3.

If all is ok, with the PS3 in stand by mode Press and hold the power button for 5 secs.. until you hear the second beep this cause the PS3 to reset.

If you have the 60GB version then you might have a faulty power supply which was a known issue on these 60GB versions, if you have contact Sony and plead for a console repair free of charge, other than that they might do a repair but it will cost approx £145 in the UK.

Thanks

Ps3 power supply


Sony will not sell any parts for the PS3 because they want you to send it in for repairs and charge you for it.
I never heard of "tired power supply".
It's either working or not.
I sell parts sometimes on ebay.
Contact me at bubulica2000@yahoo.com. I can let you know when i have one available if interested.

Playstation 3 power supply


if it does not turn on then its the power supply.. make sure you get a power supply matching your ps3.. the 60gb models have chrome like housing the 40gb have a dull grey color .. different wattage used means different supply is needed.. if you need more help let me know

PS2 games and DVD movies are still region encoded. Your Japanese PS3 will not play them.

It will play Blu-ray games from any region or and Region 1 blu-ray movie.
