    Same here. I have a model zssr5391a PS3 power supply. All fuses, bridge rectifier diodes, thermal resistors check good, but still I have no power. Any other Ideas?

    yup i had just turned mine on,and in less than 5 minutes the system completely bricked. no flashing red light,nothing. i'm afraid to look at it myself because that would void the warranty,but it's gotta either be the power supply or an issue maybe with the fan. i don't think a fan problem would fry the power supply though. i'm on phone with sony now. lol please help...anybody. thanks.

    5 min into playing a game, the system shut off and wont even turn back on. it appears as though its not getting any power as the lights dont come back on.

    Same problem red light, then power up, then back to red. Now it won't even power up at all. Smells like it burned out. Seen a couple on EBAY for sale. Cheaper when warranty period is over. This site http://www.llamma.com/PS3/repair/PS3_dis... was easy read and follow for getting power supply out.

Hi,I dissembly the ps3 power supply ZSSR5391A and it appear that the Q209 ( surface mount transistor that getting the 5 volt on the first wire on the connector was burn. No voltage att all at this point. Have 60volt before from the rectifier diode bridge but nothing after. Can't find any diagram for that power supply to find a transistor replacement. Shoulb be easier to buy another power supply or if someone can tell where to find a diagram. Hope that can help

    yellow light is a motherboard issue. You should send it to sony if it is under warranty or else, I know for a fact that joegoods.com does a great job

The power supply had gone out. ebay has several working PS3 power supplies for sale. i replaced it with the working one,and it works as good as new. was alot cheaper than the 150 bucks sony wanted to charge me since my console was "out of warranty".

MY controler wont turn on when fully charged and it does responed to the ps3


At the back top of the remote behind the 4 red lights there is a tiny pin-hole. With your PS3 on, press the big PS button on your remote, then push the button inside this little hole; a pencil lead may work. This is the only time you need to do this.

Good luck and please give me a good rating if i've helped you.

Ps3 wont play nba 2k10 all of a sudden why but


Turn on your ps3. In the main menu of the ps3 go to "Game Data Utilities". Delete the Nba 2k10 file. It should start playing again and you saved files should still be there.

Help!


Seems that the battery is low on power, when the controller is connected to the usb port of the ps3, all leds should start flashing, this show that the battery of the controller is recharging, when done the leds go off.
Note that before the leds start flashing that it can thake up an minute before it starts doing that.
Keep your ps3 on to recharge the controller.

Succes.
