I think your main board is bad so if you still have any warranty call Sony and try and get it coverered.

If your Sony is not covered and then you can always go on Ebay and bid on a broken Sony that has another problem with it besides the main board and then swap bout the main board.

Heard a pop while running ps3 then went dead. Have no red light or anything when turning it on. I've tried everything.


Unfortunately that sounds like your PSU (power supply) shorted, contact Sony to see about warranty replacement if it's still available...

Ps3 fan not running, ps3 not recognizing discs


I suggest calling up Sony and seeing how far you can investigate with their help. If you're warranty is up, opening it up shouldn't matter. However if a sony rep cant solve your problem maybe you can be eligible for a new one or something like that. hope this helped

My monitor doesn't display anything, though it's receiving input from the CPU. I know that input is being received because the monitor status light is green, and times out (turns orange).


Same thing happened to me! Went to bed last night, everything was fine. Woke up today, orange light came on, no display, slight flickering seen, but that's it. Cables and cords are fine, tried unplugging and plugging it back in, NOTHING. Totally dead. I'm guess off to buy a new one today. Typical made-in-China JUNK.

A blank screen


You probably need to reset the video. Here's what you do: Turn the PS3 off from ther back switch and then back on so that the light on the front is red. Then press down on the power button and DO NOT let go. Wait for it to turn green then beep and then go back to a red light. Then press the power button again. After you have tried that, either tell me it didn't work so I can offer more advice or tell me it worked. Thanks. :)
