Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I would like to fix my broken power supply in my PS3. How would I go about doing this? Thanks.
You need to go onto ebay and purchase a ps3 power supply... any one will work. Then you need to void the warrenty seal and pull the rubber piece out. you need a special screw driver or a smaller flat head to unscrew the screw and slide the lid off.. it goes left to right and might need a bit of force the first time you pop it off. once the cover/lid is off you will see another cover that has 6 screws in it.. take them out... look at the back of the ps3 push up on the lid and push forward. This way it will unlatch and the sides and the front of it will unhook.. like opening up a book
you will see the disc drive on the left and a chrome box on the right of the ps3. The chrome box needs to be unscrewed. There is the card reader that will need to be unscrewed but you wont need to take it off just move it and make sure not to pull the cable out!
Ok now if you are looking at the ps3 with the chrome box on the right I want you to look all around the chrome box on all sides.. there may be wires attatched to the side with white tape... take the tape off... I almost ripped it out once. (its only taped to the box and does not actually go into the power supply) Ok now unhook the wires from the back and the front.. one goes into the mother board and the other goes into the back of the ps3... then put a new power supply in.. I have to go and this was a quick how to hope it helps!
