Power cord has a bad connection to the system

I bought a new power cord thinking there was a short in the cord. But it still would not keep power going to the system. I actually had to tape the power cord in a certain position to keep the machine power turned on, but that doesnt always work. Is the connector inside easy to repair and cheap?

My ps3 turns on but no picture

First, how are you connecting? RCA jacks(red yellow white cords) or HDMI? If it's the RCA cords, they were known to develope shorts in the yellow cord that connects to your TV. Just try another cord. They are very cheap, and the cords from all of the other Playstations will work for the PS3. Second, try to do a picture reset on your system. Sometimes, going from HDMI, back to the RCA confuses the system because the RCA connections are NOT detected automatically, HDMI is. To do a picture reset, turn the system on, then push the power button once,(you'll hear a beep) then push and hold the power button until the system shuts off.(you should hear 2 beeps) Then when you turn the system back on, the picture will be reset. ^^ Good luck, and I hope this helps.

My wii won't turn on!

Disconnect all the cords from the system. You will need to unplug the A/C adapter/power cord from your wii system and from the electrical socket/or power surge protecter bar. It should not be connected to any thing! Let it sit unconecteded for about ten minutes. This should reset it. Then replug the adapter/power cord back in to electical outlet and to the wii system. Then press the power button on the wii, it should turn back on. Replug the rest of the cords back in for the system. If this does not work I suggest that you buy a new ac adapter/power cord, there could be a short in the one you have before you send in your system to be fixed You can buy a new A/C adapter/power cord on ebay for about 5 to 10 dollars, usually with free shipping.

One red light flashing bottom right , what is wrong .

A single flashing light can mean a hardware failure. Did you get an error code? EXX where XX is a 74 for instance? Please, let me know, and try this.

Power off the system and unplug everything from it..controllers, memory cards, av connection, power cord, and hard drive. Also unplug power cord from socket and the short cord from the power brick. Then reattach everything making sure the connections are firm and power back on your system. If this did not resolve the problem.

Psp carge light wont come on and psp wont turn on

You either have a bad battery, or a bad power supply that charges the unit (power cord). If you have a friend that also has a PSP, try swapping out the battery to see if that works, and or try another power cord to see if the charging indicator light comes on. I think that possibly your battery is dead and the power cord might be bad. You can find good deals for both the battery and cord on ebay. Good luck!

Power brick colour

Alright, lets fix this!
 Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow.
Usually when the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange it's on standby so there is no problem with your Xbox 360 console but the power supply can't supply it with power !

First you have to try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for a minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cords at all.
If it's still doing the same it will be definitely a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply.
So, in this case please contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill the Xbox 360 power supply.

Xbox 360 power supply light is red.
There is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply connection so try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

If it's still red that would be for sure a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply .
So, then contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill your Xbox 360 power supply .

You can also find replacement power cords many places online. See if you can get your hands on another cord and try that to see if its the current power cord.
Hope this helps you out! Please don't forget to rate :)

PS2 Slim - Power Issue

It could be the power cord, but it could also be the connection where the cable connects to the system. The cheapest fix would be to try a new power cord. If it's the slim PS2 then it's only about a $15 fix. If it's the large older PS2, then it's more like a $5 fix for a cord.
blingbdog, do you have the slim or the old large system? Also, let me know if the warranty is still valid (have you had the console for more than 1 year).
