Ps3 power supply

Hi Thor--
Do you know of anywhere in the U.S. that I can purchase a BRAND NEW power supply for a PS3 60gb version? Aside from purchasing a used, and maybe tired ps from ebay, I'd rather get a new one. Is that possible to your knowledge? You mentioned getting one for $50-$60-- is that brand new or used? Who makes this power supply anyway?

Thanks--Rich

Sony will not sell any parts for the PS3 because they want you to send it in for repairs and charge you for it.
I never heard of "tired power supply".
It's either working or not.
I sell parts sometimes on ebay.
Contact me at bubulica2000@yahoo.com. I can let you know when i have one available if interested.

Ps3 wont boot red flashing light all since download latest update


Hi,

Your console is going into protection mode to protect the from being damaged.

First thing do is check the ventilation, make sure the fans are running, make sure you have min of 1 foot around the PS3.

If all is ok, with the PS3 in stand by mode Press and hold the power button for 5 secs.. until you hear the second beep this cause the PS3 to reset.

If you have the 60GB version then you might have a faulty power supply which was a known issue on these 60GB versions, if you have contact Sony and plead for a console repair free of charge, other than that they might do a repair but it will cost approx £145 in the UK.

Thanks

My ps3 shut off secs after i turn it on red light blinks n beeps


Mother board failure is very common with ps3!!!!!!! If not power supply , then motherboard. You can get a tester and test all the capacitors and resistor and get a service manual to know the correct ratings of the components.

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17


Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

Him my name is Juan and let me try to help you I think you have the 60GB unit or 80Gb older model why I am saying this because on the 60gb unit the power suply inside the unit get way to hot and ones it gets to a point where it get way to hot it turn it self off and sometimes it reset after few minutes some power supplys they just died so if this is your problem you need a new power supply I have some in stock for 45dls and 3 dls shipping

Ps3 3 blinking lights


Hi my name is Juan and unfortunately your ps3 is dead what happen is that for some reason it got so hot and the processor stop working when you turn on the ps3 it does a self test and if something is not working right it turns off immediately with a green yellow red light so don't spend your money in another power supply I can guaranty to you is not the power supply I do sell and fix playstations and this is why I know this this problem is common on the 60Gb and 80Gb also in 40Gb but not like on the 60and 80Gb

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:
