I have my 80 GB from USA and i moved to Korea. here i hooked up the A/V cable to a transformer (voltage difference) and when i plugged in the HDMI cable to the PS3 from the TV, my whole house's lights went out. After I turned lights back on, i tried to turn on my PS3 and the red light doesnt even show anymore. my wii and ps2 work fine. how do i solve this? PLEASE HELP!!

Europe has different power supply parameters than the USA, Obviously you discovered the voltage difference, hence the transformer, but the USA sends AC voltage at 60 cycles per second while most of Europe is at 50 cycles. You need a converter, not a transformer, if your monitor is capable, you may be able to set it to operate on the different frequency from display settings, or the monitors internal menu
yes you can use a transformer to convert 120 to 220 volt .it must be rated for 110 watts load or more . the 50 hz vs 60 hz (not Mhz) is ok .. if it works on 50 hz then it will work on 60 as well for most things ...here is an excerpt from the service manual on power:
Mains connection Before connecting the TV to the mains, check that the mains supply voltage corresponds to the voltage printed on the type plate on the rear panel of the TV. If the mains voltage is different, consult your dealer.
there may be a jumper or switch that allows different voltage operation .. if not the transformer will work ..
... the problem is that it will tune only PAL and SECAM ... the tuner wont tune NTSC or our high def channels .... it will siill work however if you use an external hi def or cable tuner that has direct outpuuts like svideo or composit video or DVI .. (cant use RF) ... it will accept ntsc from dvd players and VCRs .. even a computer can be hooked up ....its resolution is 1280 X 768 so not full hi def but pretty good ... so you cant use the antenna input but everythig else will work ...
here you can find a user manual in PDF form if you need one ....yikes its kinda long URL but good info....
The only way how to play PS2 games on PS3 is to have the correct version of the console. Either your Playstation 3
can play PS and PS2 games or it can't, and there's not much to do about
it. Most of the PS3 models simply cannot play older titles as they lack
the necessary hardware and firmware. However, a few models do have
backwards compatibility. The 20 Gb, 60 Gb, and original 80 Gb models
all have backwards compatibility, either through hardware or software
emulation. The other models lack backwards compatibility, so even
knowing how to play PS2 games on PS3 won't help you out much here.
turn the power off in the back and then turn hold the power button in on the front then turn it back on in the back and continue to hold the front power button down for 5 seconds and you should here a beep then let go. Then turn it back off then on
