Well i been on ebay and checked it all out,i did alot of research on google and stuff,i know alot about the now,the dull gray one might work if it has the plastic casing,the ones on ebay is silver or chrome,what looks to be a metal casing,and those have the round female in the power supply,mine has the one that looks just like a plug that goes in the wall.i went to ebay in japan and they have them on there but thats gonna just be to much problem,they change these systems on the inside five times.so here in the u.s. its hard right now until the newer ones become more availble.if you could send me pics on the ones you got maybe than i could see if it will work.pic of all sides would be great so i can compare it or i couls send you pic of mine,my email is saigegemani@yahoo.com thanxx for the respond

Are you sure you dont need a dull gray one?
I would try ebay after a bit otherwise you will have to wait as the new systems are the ones with the black case!

My old 40 gig ps3 died, so we bought an 80 gig, but when 40 gig hdd is inserted in place of 80 gig hdd, it wont accept the hdd, and i had 9 months worth of saved games on 40 gig hdd. how do i get game...


Unfortunetly the HDD's can't be swapped like that. The only way to get the old stuff is to some how get the 40gb working so you can back up your system. Tell me what happend to the 40 and I might be able to help you get it up long enough to back it up so you can get all your stuff transfered. Another way is if you can get the 40gb machine to work the PS3 has a mode to hook a CAT5 cable from the new to the old and transfer that way.

A little more on the HDD swap. The HDD's are machine spacific and can only be recognized by the machine they were in and any other PS3 you try to put them in won't recognize the device without a format will saddly enough wipe the drive clean.

Let me know what's wrong with the 40 and I will see if I can help getting it back up so you can get your saved stuff off of it.

THE POWER LED BLINKS RED THEN TURNS YELLOW AND THE SYSTEM WILL NOT POWER UP


This is unfortunately the PS3 equivalent of the red ring of death, though thankfully significantly fewer cases exist.
You'll have to contact the store you purchased at if you're still under their warranty, if not you'll have to contact sony yourself. Either way your ps3 will need to be sent for repairs.

Ps3 no power no lights cord is fine switch is fine HELP!!!!


Its possible that the power supply isn't putting out all the voltages required for the ps3 to turn on. Best way to verify it is if you had another known good working power supply to swap it with. If you can swap the power supply and get the ps3 to turn on then you know your power supply is bad. If it still gives you the same problem after swapping then the main board is bad. I believe the ground should show 5 volts. if the 5 volts isn't present then the power supply is definitely bad.

Japanese ps3 power supply


US and Japanese power supplies are the same. The 60GB PS3's run hotter than any other models. I've never seen a power supply get hot, but if it is then it's probably a good idea to swap it since heat is the number one 60GB killer.

I just created a blog that has a ton of usefull PS3 info and tips. Please check it out here:

Ps3 power supply


I can sell you a power supply if interested but if you get a red light the power supply is most likely still good. You may need a new motherboard.

As far as i know if it is a 20 or 60 gig it is just playstation 20 or 60 gigabites. I have heard that the 40 and 80 gig models have been refered to as 2.0. So it would be playststion 3  80 2.0
