Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
The I/O button works off the touch of your finger. your finger becomes part of the circuit. You may need to clean off the I/O button. This is sort of a long shot for the solution. In your best interest, I suggest you do not attempt to repair this yourself as you will kill any chance of getting it repaired any time soon. I run the Playstation Clinic and we repair Video Gamer consoles. I am currently unable to get internal parts for the PS3. I am sure it want be long before parts are available for purchase. Right now before you go any further, preserve your Warranty sticker which is located on the upper left side of the Console. If you can find your receipt, you will be in great shape with Sony support. You can call them at 1800 345-7669 and arrange an exchange. This will cost you about $30 in shipping costs. Thats all and about 2 weeks of time without your Console. If you do not have a Receipt, Sony may still exchange it, but I hear the cost is about $170.00 which includes the $30 to ship it to them. Your ship it to them and pay them $140 for a refurbished exchange. At this time, it is the best deal going. I may be able to repair your PS3, but without parts, we would be taking a big chance, as all chances of going with the Sony deal is out once the Warranty seal is broken.
