Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 dead Hi all, I got my ps3 over ebay it doesn't turn on. I have the power cable. Can some one please help me and tell me how to start fixing it. I don't have the receipt for it so contacting sony for replacement is not an option and also returning to the seller is not an option either. Please help me. Thanks

Hey, i got my ps3 over ebay also. does the console itself come on, just no picture? if that is the case, as what was going on with mine. then it is easy. plug it in as normal, and hold the button for 5 seconds as u turn it on. (make surethe switch onthe back of the console is one too) by holding the button for 5 seconds to turn it on, it is making the ps3 kinda set itself up to ur tv. hope this helps.

    oh forgot to mention, my ps3 has just died with the latest update i put on it ( if this fixes it, dont put either 2.17 or 2.30 updates on it cos it causes laser to spin too fast!!! and burns it out) but i didnt have the receipt or anything either, with it being from ebay, this doesnt matter tho, they just need the serial number on the back of hte console to confirm it is a playstation and confrim what model (40gb, 60gb), they will most prob send u out a replacment ps3, u jsut have to post urs off to them. ring asap tho cos they r still coverint the ps3s that have just ran out of warrenty. also, they send u a coupon for the post office, so it doesnt cost u a cent to send them the playstation. i was very very impressed with the help from sony!

My ps3 wouldn't turn on it goes green to yellow then flashes red any help to resolve this please :)


Hi My name is Juan and your ps3 is dead similar to the same problem with the xbox360 red ring of dead but so far there is a solution and is call reflow what had happen is that your VGA graphics card got way to hot and some of the points or connections under the chip are not making good contact anymore so the only solution is to heat up the motherboard in an equipment that is controlled by computer and what it does is it melts the solder again creating the solder to make contact with the chip and fix any broken joins this will fix your problem and 90% of ps3's are reparables so if you have data you don't want to loose in your hard drive don't intall your hard drive in any other ps3 I do have the system to fix your problem I am a trusted ebay power seller I don't offer this service on ebay but there is others sellers who they do offer the reflow service for 65-75dls plus shipping I charge 70dls and you have to pay for shipping the unit to me I'll pay for return shipping and on ebay you have to pay for shipping both ways so let me know if you will like to see your unit running again
