Yes Eric. The power supply can be replaced and it's rather easy.The only problem is finding one for sale. They are fairly hard to come by. Try ebay, but BE CAREFUL what you buy and read the description VERY well.

I hope this helps you out. Good luck to you.

Shut down while watching movie


Most likely a YLOD problem.
This problem occurs when that PS3 Unit overheats and the GPU or CPU becomes UN-soldiered from the mother board. the only way to repair this is by a re-flow of the soldier under the chips on the board.
This needs to be done by a professional due to the extreme sensitive nature of the internal electronics. There are a few repair services out there. I have been doing these repairs for a few years now and it usually takes me about 2 hours to repair a unit and then I like to test it for 30 hours to make sure it won't overheat anymore.
you can contact me by email if you would like me to fix your unit for you

Your power supply cables may not be fully secured. Let's unplug and reconnect your power supply

  2. Reconnect the power cord to the console. Then plug the power cord back into the wall outlet and the power supply unit
  3. Make sure that all three connections are firmly secured.
  4. Turn your console back on.
  5. Check the light on the power supply. If this solution worked, your power supply light will be green....

My xbox isnt turning on there is no lights nothing


It sounds like a fried power supply. It could have happened for many reasons; overheating (being on carpet is bad for the Xbox), low or high surge through the power supply, etc. You may have to order a new power supply from Ebay. Should only cost about 20-25 bucks.

You can fix the 3 lights of death by replacing the x-clamps and the crappy thermal paste. Here is a kit to fix it and it comes with the guide too.

Wii will not receive power


This has happened to me, what you need to do is remove the power cord from both the wii and wall outlet, and wait a few minutes while the converter box on the cord resets itself. I know it sounds strange, but it works.
