If you don't even get the red led light then it's likely the main power supply took a dive.

If it's still under warranty by all means get it repaired by Sony.

Otherwise, you'll have to open the PS3 to determine which power supply you have.

Then just match it up with one on ebay and swap it, should bring your machine back to life.

Let me know if you have any other questions or problems.

Hi, this is a power board failure. the power supply will need to be replaced. there are many sites that have repair parts that you can purchase for do it yourself but, i recommend authentic Sony parts.

Saturn vue will start but will only stay runnuing about twenty minutes then stalls wont start


Does the car loose power before stalling or does it simply die without warning? If it loses power first, you're likely looking at a fuel pump or fuel system problem. If it just dies, you probably have an ignition problem. Does the check engine light come on before it dies?

Engine die


system too lean at idle suggests that you have a vacuum leak in system. Check vacuum hoses, under dash controls and the vacuum hose to the transmission. check brake booster for leaks.

Bryant plus 90 intermittent start-up


That's an intermittent problem. Could be: dirty filter, dirty blower wheel, dirty secondary heat exchanger, dirty evap. coil, weak or damaged high temp safety, loose wire connection, fault at control board, poor air flow. Just about 100 guesses! Could be's don't solve anything. Check for cleanliness. Clean flame sensor(flame rod that burner flame comes in contact with). These are the first I would try.

2002 F-150 regular cab. Idling seems like it wanted to die. While driving would rev up and down wanting to die. Finally died at a red light and had to be towed home. In the driveway it acts like a dead...


From what you describe, it sounds like your alternator died. The battery's main function is to provide power to start the vehicle. Once started, the alternator takes over and provides the main source of power to the truck, and also recharges the battery.
When the alternator stops working, the car starts to run solely off the battery. It will work for a little while, but as the battery starts to lose power, strange things will happen with the electronics. The computers and other electronics that control the vehicle are very dependent on a constant, steady flow of voltage. When that voltage dips below 11 or 10 volts, the car may start to run badly or strange things may happen with electrical system.
When there was finally not enough power to keep the car running, it shut off. Of course, once this happens, there will not be enough power left to start the truck back up.

Stalling


If it starts up fine and then dies (2 SEC) it is the PASSLOCK security system, those cars are fairly notorious for that problem.

The passlock system will cut power to the fuel injectors after 2 sec. Use a test light and see if the injector power is being shut off.

Jeep won't start


Charge the battery and have it load tested...It may have just given up...check the charging system and also, perhaps did you leave something on in the car? (dome light, glove box light etc)

Running problem


It takes electrical power to run the ignition system on your bike. If your alternator is not providing that power it must come from the battery. When the battery is out of power, the bike dies. You have a problem in your bikes electrical system. MOST likely is a faulty battery, but could also be alternator or other piece in the system.
