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.

Power supply? For a PS3? OK, the cord it's self is the main A/c in. The D/C converter is located inside of the system, unlike the 360, witch has it in line with the cord. Also called the "Brick".

My playstation 3 is not working correctly. i had an hdmi cable hooked up to it, and it came unplugged. i plugged it back in, and there was no picture, but here was sound. i tried to turn it on without the...

Ok follow these steps to cure your problem :

Step 1. Turn your PS3 into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. When you first press it it will beep, then it will beep again 5 seconds later. When you hear this second beep release the power button.

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to restart

This basically resets the video output back to standard definition. You should now be able to set your video up properly with the PS3 menu.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

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.
