Playstation 3 power supply

I was just told by one of the experts online, that my playstation 3 power supply was more than likely bad. So i was just wondering what would be a way to test and make sure so i dont buy anything i dont need. I have heard of hooking a pc power supply up to the ps3 but i dont know how to do that, so if you can help i would appreciate it. thanks

If it does not turn on then its the power supply.. make sure you get a power supply matching your ps3.. the 60gb models have chrome like housing the 40gb have a dull grey color .. different wattage used means different supply is needed.. if you need more help let me know

BLINKING red light means bad or loose hard drive, not that serious, you can fix it in minutes, you dont even void the warranty.

Dear Experts I recently played my ps3 online at a friends house, but when i returned home and turned the console on, my ps3 no longer had audio or visual support. The power supply is still working fine...


While the PS3 is OFF (solid red led), Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.

This is how to issue a soft video reset. Should work after that :)

Playstation is turning on for a few seconds and then turning itself of again


Sounds like a bad power supply issue. If you have the warranty and it is still viable, I suggest you turn it into sony. If not you might want to pick up another power supply unit. Keep in mind not only cable itself could be bad but the circuit board could have problems with some of the resistors or transistors not functioning properly.

Playstation shuts off right away


Most likely your power supply is bad.

You can either send it in to Sony if it's under warranty or another repair shop if not. It's not to hard to fix yourself either, you can search online and find lots of places to sell you the part.

My ps3 has a power start isuue


This is more of a power issue. This could be one of two problems either the Power supply in the playstation or the power supply in the power cord area. The best and cheapest way would be to replace the entire power cable. If that does not correct the problem then it is an internal problem with the playstation.
