Most of the time no lights = power supply, but I just had a case where no lights = motherboar. But that is the only one of those I have seen in all of the PS3 repairs I have done.

If you buy one on EBay or w/e and it isn't the problem, I could buy the good part from you. I always am looking for spare parts. if it is the motherboard though, I don't deal in the 20gb or 40gb models, only the 60 and 80.

If the red light doesn't come on at all when switched on in the back, then it's MOST likely that the power supply has blown something. Hope this helps.

I have a dell dimension 3000 pc that i haven't used for a few weeks as i was waiting for an external hard drive to put all my music, videos etc on. I have just come to use the pc and it won't even turn on....

if the external hard drive is hook up to the main drive you might have to disconnect the exteranl hard drive and try another way to hook them up together . you did something wrong when you installed the externall drive. try it . and see if the original hard drive boots up. if this works you will have to change the boot sequence to use the external drive.

Ps3 power supply

Check the power suply output voltage and freqwency. Then get the same info from a US power supply. If it matches shouldn't be an issue. Yet I think the best is just to get a transformer from a european store from 220 to 110. It may be cheaper that a power supply. If still interested in a US power supply I have one available.
