Good luck on that, sony does not authorize the sale of its ps3 parts. You will have to call sony ( the number is on the ps3 official site) and get them to send you a box and you will have to pay approx $180 to have it repaired.

No display - how to fix


Hi there

The no display problem is very annoying as you check all your cables and everything is fine but still nothing shows up on the screen,

What is the no display error

Again this problem is pretty much what it say's, you know you have this when you have no display on the tv when the PS3 is all set up correctly

The Causes

The basic causes are cables not connected correctly or you have a cable that is not compatible with your Tv/PS3

It can also be PS3 settings that are not correct.

The bigger problem is the Display chip internally or hardware failure.

The Solutions

Solution 1
Ok so you can send the console off to sony they will collect it, repair it and send it back, this will usually cost you $150

Solution 2
My favourite solution is the PS3 repair guide, you can fix the problem within the hour, costs are below $40 and you don't need to be technical at all.

Solution 3
Buy a new PS3 console over $200 this is the last resort.

My playtstation 3 overheated and will not startup. Is it repairable and is there a solution to not have this happen again?


It is repairable, but generally involves you having to open up the PS3 and mess/replace some parts, which I would not recommend doing.

I would instead recommend sending your PS3 into the Sony support team, and having them fix it. If you're still covered by warranty it will be free, and if you're not it will still be cheaper than buying a new one. Also, Sony should fix it in a way so that it will not overheat again.

To start the repair process, go the Sony's website and find their support page, they will guide you from there.

PS3 shuts down during use. Yellow light comes on then red light shows up. What should I try to do?


Hi this is a very common problem and its to do with the ps3 over heating,
try the following.
leave it off and unplugged for an hour
check all air vents are free from fluff and dust and vac if needed.
make sure the ps3 is not being used whilst its on carpet
make sure the ps3 is not sitting on top of another electrical item such as dvd or sky box as this will cause it to over heat a lot quicker.
make sure its not wedged in a confined space it needs to have plenty of room around it to ensure cool air flow.

unplug all the leads from the back of the ps3 and the telly then plug them all back in, doing this removes any static that may have built up, then switch it on.

if after doing the above it still dont work then this indicates that either the gpu or cpu chip has over heated, if you have any warranty left take it back you need to check on the ps3 web site to see how old your ps3 is as this fault is covered by ps3 warranty for a couple of years but you need to check this.

now as for getting it repaired, well its a bit hit and miss i repair them myself and if it was an xbox 360 then i would say the chance of it working again is pretty high but as its a ps3 then these can be a bit hit and miss if the ps3 has over heated a lot and fried the cpu or gpu chip or both then the cost of repair would not be worth doing as it would be cheaper to buy a second hand ps3 or even a reconditioned one.

its not the kind of repair you can do yourself as you need to know how to test the circuit board to find out if the chips have been damaged.
the only other option you have is selling it for spares, i buy the damaged ones for spare parts but you wont get much for it as it is, i mean you could pay for the repair and you may get charged even though it cant be fixed,

i always say to my customers that if i cant repair it i will only charge for the parts i used which is nothing but if i do fix it then i charge them the cost of the repair, usually if its beyond repair they let me buy it off them as i pay more than they would get from ebay as they sell on their for about 30 quid with the problem you have got.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks.....

Yellow light of death - How to fix


Hi there

The yellow light of death is one of the largest PS3 problems, everyday i see people asking how to fix this on the Fixya website.

What is the yellow light of death

The yellow light of death is when the light on the front of your console will briefly flash yellow then flash red and your console will not turn on.

The Causes

A lot of people believe it to be over heating, which is slightly right, being in and out of PS3 console's everyday i can explain what the cause is.

Inside the PS3 there are two Chips, The GPU (display) and the CPU (brain) Now each time you play the ps3 the chips do give off a lot of heat, now if the console is not ventilated very well, you cause heat build up.

What this will do is melt the soldering that keeps the chips connected to the motherboard once connection is lost PS3 realises there is hardware failure and needs to stop use, so the yellow light of death is activated.

The Solutions

Solution 1
Ok so you can send the console off to sony they will collect it, repair it and send it back, this will usually cost you $150

Solution 2
My favourite solution is the PS3 repair guide, you can fix the problem within the hour, costs are below $40 and you don't need to be technical at all.

Is it difficult to replace the power supply in a PS3?


I Definitely Suggest you just buy a new power supply,,,, If your power supply fails, you can have multiple issues with your ps3... Being as expensive as they are... i would just say your best bet is to buy a new power supply... As for where to buy... Definately ebay... way cheaper!... make sure you check people's ratings before buying.... If you dont have access to ebay, then i suggest hitting up a electronics store that sells ps3's... if anything it can be ordered in... :D Good luck... Please rate! :)

Repair


Hi Scooter,

I run a repair shop called the Playstation Clinic. We stopped accepting PS3 consoles as the parts are not available. The returned PS3 consoles are not much good due to scavenge parts from as they have the same Problem with the Graphics Engine Cooling. I am guessing your PS3 has the same fate. It is currently near impossible to contact Sony through the phone. Contact Sony for warranty Claim on the website www.playstation.com
