PS3 Power Surge Help!

I hooked my PS3 yo to my tv and plugged it into my wall. When I put the 3 cords into the TV, there was a loud pop, and smoke started to come out of the yellow cord jack on the tv. I think it was a power surge. I plug my PS3 into another outlet and it turns on and seems to work fine, however, there is no picture. Any ideas?

Hi there try using the ps3 as audio-cd play(blind, without screen)
with any other tv to make sure soun still is coming...
if there was a flash or circuit destroyíng the yellow(video)plug,
either the cable has been destroyed or the short backfired even into the video module of the psx3.
try exchanging the cable, if that doesn't do any good, the video module got smoked...

let a technician repair/replace it or you think about becoming the happy owner of another brand new psx3


good luck!

How do you set up a ps3?


Hello,

I would suggest you follow these procedures, hook up your PlayStation 3 to a television. You must decide whether your TV supports high definitions (HD) resolution or not. For HD resolution, you must use a HDMI cable or a component video cable. These cables also support standard definition (SD) resolution. If you only have an SD television, you can use an S-video cable or an AV cable. These two can't support HD resolution.

Connect the PlayStation 3 to any audio equipment such as a A/V receiver or home entertainment system. Connect using a digital audio cable or, alternatively, run an HDMI cable to your A/V receiver then another HDMI cable to the television set.

Plug in the Ethernet cable, then connect the other end to a 10Base T jack from your home network. This connects you to the Internet and the world of online gaming.

Attach the AC power cord to the PlayStation 3, and then plug it into a surge protected wall outlet. Don't plug in the power cord until all other connections have been made as a chance of shock exists.

Perform the initial set up of the system. Turn on the power of the TV and game console, and follow the on-screen prompts. The pre-installed software guides you through the set up process.
Take care.

TV will not power up, no lights blinking just a continuous beeping sound


Please follow the below troubleshooting steps: 1. If the Television is plugged into a surge protector, remove it from the surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. 2. Try connecting the TV to a different AC wall outlet. 3. Try power resetting the TV. To Reset the TV, disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and power ON the TV. 4. If the issue still persists, TV will require service.

Surge protector shuts off while playing PS3


swap to another surge protector. if it still does it, it is a power surge at the outlet, if it does not, the Surge Proctector has worn out. have someone with the appropriate knowlege have a look at the outlet as well. older outlets especially tend to wear to the point where the plug literally falls out of the wall.

Ps3 blew up a 2nd tv


Make sure that you are not plugging either the game system or the TV into a surge supressor device or any other equipment that may allow you to have reversed the polarity of the AC current coming into the equipment from the wall outlet. Remember, most modern electronics equipment has a "hot" ground power supply. That means there is the possibility that you are sending current thru the ground return path of the items you connect in this way.
