Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
This has happened to a few other people, and the solution was always the same.
Turns out that the power supply inside the PS3's aren't as good of quality as the rest of the machine, and everyone that has had a problem like this has had to have the PS replaced.
If the unit is still under warranty, then return it and get a replacement.
If not, then your best bet is to take the unit to Fry's or BestBuy. These two companies both have techs trained in working on game consoles. They both are skilled at the repairs, and seem to be equally as fast at getting the job done quickly, so that you can get back to gaming.
I hope this helps you out, so that you realize what's the deal, and good luck !!
