Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have the original 60 GB Playstation 3 and a month or two out of warranty the PSU went up. Since I am out of warranty they will replace it for $150.00 with a reconditioned one that comes with a 90 day warranty.
Does anybody know what the problem with the power supplies is? I know I treated my PS3 pretty well and it wasn't doing anything it wasn't designed to do when it went bad (i.e. running in a small cabinet or had a blanket thrown over it or something). The reason I ask is because I am considering replacing the PSU myself but I don't know if there are other problems that I will not know to address and my PS3 will be ultimately doomed to burn out another PSU.
Are the PSUs bad? Does it need additional cooling? I don't want to spend my time and money only to have it break again. Will my problem be fixed if I get a new PSU and put it in my Playstation?
I look all over the net but could't find anything, until i found a site that said they
could show me how to fix any problem with my ps3. At first i was not so
sure about ordering the manual but i did, whats $5 plus i used paypal, but
long story short i fix my ps3, i recomend this site www.gameme.20fr.com
i hope this help you like it help me.
