Moving to UK. Will my US PS3 work there?

It looks like the power cord will be a problem because my adapters aren't 3 prong.

K&K AT-306 RECEIVER THE POWER CORD IS A two prong ,i think its from uk{ can i use this Uk to US USA Power Adapter}or soilder 110 power cord on the motherboard


The UK have 3 prong power plugs. Your power cable may be a figure of 8 type, Readily available in most electronics stores. If it states 240V only, then that is the voltage it needs.

Your question was worded poorly and it's difficult to understand what you are asking. As a guess, if you are looking for a 30-amp adaptor cord set, perhpas this will work:
Conntek 20601 25 Foot 10 4 30 Amp 125 250 Volt 4 Prong L14 30 Transfer...

If it's a 3-prong adaptor:
Camco 55333 30 AMP 3 Prong Generator Adapter

Or a 15 to 20 adaptor:
Coleman Cable 09020 12 3 9 Inch Generator Cord Adapter 5 15P to L5 20R

I have a three prong plug washer/dryer but a 4 prong outlet need an adapter


YOU DONT ADAPT IT, U REPLACE THE RECEPTACLE OR USE THE CORRECT PRONG CORD. THE CORDS ARE NOT THAT EXPENSIVE FROM 20 TO 30 BUCKS AND EVEN CHEAPER ON LINE. IF U HAVE A NEWER HOME IT IS MANDATED BY LAW THAT YOU USE 4 PRONG CORD NOT 3 PRONG UNLESS THE HOME CAME WITH A 3 PRONG OUTLET.

My dryer's power cord has 4 prongs, my wall socket has 3 holes, can I change the power cord, or is there an adapter to change from 4 to 3 pronges.


Un screw the 2 hex screws from the back of the dryer where the cord goes in.

There will be 3 screws that connect the cord to the dryer, loosen or remove them to remove the 4 prong cord.

A hardware store will carry the 3 prong cord you need, tell them it is for a dryer.

Re-connect the 3 prong cord to the dryer.

Plug in and test after you have installed the new cord.

When playing games the screen on tv has white lines and the screen shakes.


Have you tried this PS3 on another TV?
We've had some older TV's that will do that on their own... that's the only reason I ask.

Well there are various opinions on this forum, but the one shows up most definitely as a solution is to prevent the ground prong on the PS3 power cord from getting into the socket, something to do with a ground-loop issue. They suggest getting a 2-prong to 3-prong adapter/extension, or, cut off the ground-prong.
Other things mentioned elsewhere include purchasing non-oem video cables... people suggest that the ones which come with the PS3 ****.

I myself have never experienced these issues, so I cannot verify them first-hand.

About the screen shakes... here's a fixya link which seems to get to a successful resolution.. check it out:

Return it...and get a 3 prong dryer cord.

Place the middle conductor on the middle of the terminal block and the two outside conductors on the two outside terminals of the block. It makes no difference which way just so they are not on the middle terminal. Make sure they are tight but don't over-tighten to break the terminal block. The cord will probably cost less than the "adapter" did.

Good Luck

When you start your PS3, press the power button and hold it for 5 seconds. It will beep and reset the machine to the default settings. What is happening is it is thinking you are still using the other cable. Reset to default and it will recognize the new cable. Hope that helps.
