Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Playstation3 will not turn on
By not power up do you mean no lights and sound when you turn it on or it comes on and flashes different lights and then shuts off???
with the first one its mostly a problem with your power supply. if you know how you can check/replace the power supply. and if you go this route while you have your system open check for damaged wires or wires that are loose. if after you do this you may have more serious problem where you may want to send it off to get it repaired professionally. *NOTE* if you break the warranty sticker while opening it sony may nor repair your ps3.
with the second problem you may need to reflow *********** board. it is very technical but is doable. one caution though from what i read and hear this fix is not permanent. it could last as short as few days to as long as few months. you can check youtube for "how to take apart ps3" and "how to reflow ps3 motherboard" or as is more commonly know "how to replow YLOD board"
if its still warranty its just easier and cheaper to send it off to sony to get it fixed.
