You can open the PS3 but it will eliminate your warranty, does it not come on at all? I have replace the Blu Ray drive but never the power supply. If they overheat there are youtube videos for re-sodering the processor but chances are it wont work.

Sound problems for ps3

Usually when this happens, it is a connection between the system and the tv. Do a physical check of the whole cord and see if you feel any breaks in either the red or the white wires. If these seem fine, then it could be the connection INTO the system. Just clean it, and the cord input, with some alcohol. Make sure the system is unplugged first. ^^ And give it a couple minutes to dry. Reconnect and you should have sound. If these don't work, try a new cord, as they are really cheap parts for the system.PlayStation x, PS one, PS2, and the PS3 all use the same plug and cords for the A/V. Good luck.

Had to put a new hard drive in a ps3 how do i makeit format it


1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their untill you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command ,the resetting must makeit work default

I opened the ps3 to clean it. Powers up but no video or audio...

it sounds like you may have unplugged one of the ribbon cords in the PS3. take it back apart and check all of your connections and make sure they are all tight.

Do you know where can i get the red n black thin wire that is connected to the drive board

I know the wires you're talking about.
You can look around and see if a friend or whatever has a broken PS3, then you can snag the wires off of those. That might take a while, as the models of the PS3 differ.
If you have no luck, you can take it into a specialist and they can repair the connection.
It would be cheaper than sending it to Sony.
Plus you voided the warranty by opening it up in the first place.
I'd say don't touch anything else. Unhooking more wires could make your Blu-Ray inoperable. Even if you connect everything back real snug.

When i put a disc in my ps3 everything works except for the lense and tray,how do i trouble shoot it to make sure that the motor is out and not just a bad wire or something

you should start by unhooking everything and then hooking it back up and if that doesnt work than you should consider taking it somewhere to get it fixed or just getting a new one
