It needs a new power supply. When the power came back on, most likely a surge damaged the power supply.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $35 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

On ps3, when switched on, says hard drive corrupted, will restore. after a while trying to restore, same thing comes up again.


  • Turn off the PS3 console, if it isn't already.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Connect your controller to the console with the USB cable when prompted to do so.Turn on the controller. You will now have access to the PS3 recovery menu.Select option three which states "Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files." This option will identify and correct and corrupt files. Your PS3 should now be fixed. If this option doesn't fix your problems, you'll want to do a complete system restore and follow the next step.Turn off the PS3 console by holding down the power button.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Select option 5 which states "Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch." Be aware that performing a complete system restore will cause all data on the hard drive to be lost. This option restores the PS3 back to its original factory condition.

    I have a ps3 2 days ago we had a power outage and I tried to use it today and it only turns on for about 1 second then shuts off again I cannot get the disk out anymore can you help pleeeeze


    If you had a power outage then more than likely the power supply was damaged. You'll need to take the PS3 apart and swap out the old one with a new one.

    Had the ps3 working fine, plugged it into another tv and nothing, the tv wont pick up the signal.. went to plug it back into the 1st tv and still nothing


    Try resetting the display back to standard definition -

    Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
    Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep

    Wait for the PS3 display to reset

    Hope this helps

    Ps3 power wont stay on


    search yellow light of death on google

    1)Turn off your playstation. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
    2) Check if there's any loose cable.
    3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

    If this did not work send to sony to get fixed

    No picture


    The first thing you have to do is that to make a video reset. The procedure to make a video reset is while the PS3 is off (red solid light) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release the power button..
    Your problem will be fixed.

    Power went out and back on; now printer won't print


    I had the same problem after a resent power outage. Here's what fixed mine.

    Turn the power switch off.
    Wait a 15-20 seconds
    While holding the button on the front panel down turn the power switch on.
    After the drum light comes on release the button wait then press the button again.
    Turn the machine off then back on again and you should be back in business.

    To prevent the problem in the future if you are not using the printer turn it off and if the power goes off while printing get the printer turned off before the power comes back.
