I have done that repair before. not a bid deal. if you do repair yourself you will void the warranty. powersupplies run about 40 $ and you will need securty bits.

Can I send my ps3 into the company and have it fixed. Im a female and dont have any idea what to take apart or trust anyone else


You NEED to call Sony first. You'll have to pay, I think 150$ 1-800-345-SONY. They'll send you the box to put your ps3 into. You have to include the peripherals and plugs that were included with the ps3 and ship it to Sony. Your Online ID is stored ONLINE, so you can put your original ID on your new ps3 when you receive it. You will lose all your game saves and data UNLESS you can back it up to an external hdd first.

Hello there, Would you guys know how to fix PS3 red screen of death


1. Restart your console.
2. Take out the hard-drive, and put it back in.
3. Check for loose cables.
4. Unplug all cables except the power cord, and plug them back in.

If these tips didn't fix your PS3 error, then you'll have to send your console over to Sony, pay $150 and wait 2-6 weeks.

Ps3 wont turn on


Yes.

Make sure:

1) Its not sitting on carpet

2) has a 3 inch clearance all around it

3) it's dust free - use canned air or a vaccuum

4) it is plugged into an appropriately rated power strip; or an outlet designated specifically for it.

If these simple solutions don't work, I'm sorry but you'll have to send it in. To avoid high shipping charges, take it to the USPS and get a flat rate box.

90% of the time you can fix this problem by simply swapping the power supply.

What can I do?


Sorry, the PS3 does not have a circuit breaker. Most likely when the power came back on the surge blew the power supply. You can get it serviced by Sony or replace the power supply your self.
