Ps3 power supply

I was playing call of duty 4 and the same thing happened my power shut off on me. I thought it was the power in my house but i looked around and nothing else had shut off. i tried unplugging the ps3 from the wall and the tv and plugging it back in, but theres no red standby light on or anything. from reading others problems i think its the power supply thing and its still under warranty for me so what should i do? Should i get it fixed at a sony repair place in town and how much would that cost, or should i call sony and send it back there and hopefully they give me a new one??

Why does my xbox 360 shut off by itself within 10 minutes of playing call of duty 2? I also noticed the power supply thing has a red dot on it and it is very hot?


My first thought would be that the power supply brick is bad. Bring xbox to game stop. They may let you test it out on one of their power supplies.

60gb ps3 wont start up.


Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.

Sometimes if you have that HD thing it changes the way it shows on different tvs. When that happened to mine I just held the power button until it beeped three times, it helped me maybe you'd like to try it out

Whats wrong


does this only happen with CoD4? If so you may have a faulty disk. Goto your local blockbuster and rent CoD4 and see if it does the same thing. If it does, you need to RMA your ps3 877-253-SONY and request a RMA.

If it doesn't you got a bad game disk.

New PS3 60G shuts itself all the way down!!!!!!!


Sounds like it's overheating. 1st person shooters take a lot of processing speed and will overtax your unit if you don't have adequate ventilation. Be sure you have the unit standing on it's side, flat down is not good unless you have some standoff room underneath by propping it up, making sure you don't cover the vents. If it continues, you can buy something like this
