Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Mine started shutting off when I play a demo, it can't be overheating because I play games and search the net for hours. When I played the new madden 09 for about 20 or 30 min. my system shut off and will not power on again. I used to be able to turn it right back on when it shut down like that. Does it make a difference if you have the original power cord or not, cause the cord I'm using came off a pc monitor
In all actuality, it shouldn't make a difference. But there are select cords out there that may have a short or deliver the wrong voltage. That is why in the Sony warranty it says that the warranty is void if you use a cable thatisn't approved by Sony for use with the PS3.
So does the red standby light come on when you power on the toggle switch in the back?? If not then it is the power supply. You will need a new power supply installed.
If it does the old Green/Yellow/flashing Red when you push the front power button, the you have some motherboard problems and need to call Sony or sell it and get a new one, or find the problem and fix it.
Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
