You both have bad power supplies inside your PS3 units. If they are still under warranty you can get the units exchanged by Sony. If not you can sell for parts or repair yourself. If replacing the power supply yourself, you can find a great PS3 disassembly tutorial at www.llama.com You will only need to go as far as opening the unit and swapping the power supply with a new or used one that works. I hope this helps you both. Good luck and happy gaming!!

You will need an HDMI cable. Please follow the below instructions.

Instructions

  1. Before you begin installation:
    • Turn OFF the PS3TM system using the [MAIN POWER] switch (in the back)
    • Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet
    • Turn OFF and unplug the TV
  2. Connect one end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PS3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor. ps3_8_hdmiconnecttv.gif
  3. Plug in the AC power cord by connecting one end of the AC power cord into the [AC IN] port on the back of the PS3 system and the other end into an electrical outlet. ps3_11_connectacpower.gif
  4. Press the [MAIN POWER] switch on the rear of the system. A red light should appear on the front of the system indicating power is available.
  5. Turn on the PS3 by pressing the touch-sensitive [On/Off button] on the system front. The red light will turn green, indicating the PS3 is now turned on.
    Note: The blue light will also appear on the front of the system if you have a disc inserted.

  8. On the next screen, the PS3 will display the maximum resolution capable on the display (i.e., 1080p). The screen will display, "Do you accept the setting?" You will have 30 seconds to confirm your answer.2 Select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton to save your settings. You have now completed the HDMI installation.

You can try the following:
a. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a surge suppressor, and that the surge suppressor
is plugged into a properly grounded outlet (see page 9). Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor
that meets all of the specifications described on page 9. Important: The treadmill is not compatible
with GFCI-equipped outlets.
b. After the power cord has been plugged in, make sure that the key is fully inserted into the console.
c. Check the circuit breaker located on the treadmill
near the power cord. If the switch protrudes as
shown, the circuit breaker has tripped. To reset the
circuit breaker, wait for five minutes and then press
the switch back in.
d. Check the on/off switch located on the treadmill near
the power cord. The switch must be in the on posi-

No lights - Acts Like It Has No Power At All


see the diagram and pictorial and proceed with common sense:
1) test the fuse for open or band contact with VOM,see the diagram attached how to do it
2)check the switch door hook or door release button,when they are broken they do not touch the switch, and will NOT start. test for open
see the diagram

No power. cannot turn on with remote or from unit


The first question I always ask is - Is it plugged in? next is the outlet "Switched" or operated by a wall switch. Some outlets can be wired so the top outlet is switched and the lower outlet remains on all the time. You might have a bad power cord - not common but can happen. If these don't work try putting tape over the "remote eye" on the front of the set. There may be a strong source of IR in the room. (bad light bulb or sun reflection on the Eye) The set may just be dead.

When i operate the switch on my karcher pressure washer the power wash does not operate.


But water comes out the end right? just under hose pressure only I bet. I have one of these units and every time I think it has gone bad I manage to find the problem. This unit not only has the switch on the front that needs to be on but it also has a safety switch on the plug where it plugs into a wall or extension cord. The last time I thought mine had gone bad it had actually blown the fuse. the unit was plugged into an outside outlet via extension cord. It just so happens that that is an GFCI outlet. I think the wife got water on the extension cord and that caused it to blow. So check:
The power switch on the front The safety switch on the cord, The outlet it is plugged into
Usually, for us, it is the button on the cord when it is plugged into an extension cord it always gets the test button bumped which shuts it down.

My son plugged the wrong power cord into Sony Playstation. now when he plugs the right cord in nothing happens. Is there a fuse or something that can be replaced?


is it the power cord i assume ? make sure the little flip power switch above the power cord is in on position. and u should have steady red light on front of ps3 when unit has power on. using a different power cord should not affect it but its not recommended . most ps3 uses a standard power cable.

Kenmore Elite HE3 Dryer PF on control panel,


HI, there may have been a slight power failure within the home breaker unit or the dryer may have lost power to the control for some sort of reason.

I recommend a thorough inspection of the terminal block on the back side of this unit. make sure the power cord is attached tightly and the wall outlet is secure and holding the power cord correctly. if everything looks great with the terminal block and the power cord is plugged in the outlet correctly, simply unplug this unit for 5 minutes to reset the control. after the 5 minutes are up, plug the unit in once more and the PF alert should reset.

Make sure the breaker box in your home is working properly. (the actual breaker switch for the dryer must be in the on position)

Front panel Ac Switch failing to start computer.


Try these steps.
If Power supply light does not turn on (or no power supply LED)
Perform the following steps, in order, until power is restored or it is determined that there is a hardware failure:
NOTE: If the Power Supply fan spins when the PC is turned on but the light does not come on, it is possible the LED is defective. If this is the case, use the section Power supply light comes on or flashes .
1. Disconnect everything from the PC, including the power cord.
2. With the power cord disconnected, press the power button on the front of the computer. Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.
3. Replace the power cord with another power cord, like the one used by the monitor.
Test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.
4. Ensure that the voltage selector switch is on the correct setting, 115V for North America.
5. With the power cord removed, flip the red voltage selector switch to the opposite position, wait about five seconds, and then switch the red voltage selector switch back to its original location.
This ensures that the voltage switch is engaged and set correctly for your country/region.
6. Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.
7. Plug a lamp into the same outlet to see if the wall outlet has power. Try the computer in a different outlet in order to eliminate the outlet as a possible source of the issue. Test both to see if the wall outlets have power.
8. Remove all extension cords, power strips, surge protectors and any converters that remove ground. Plug the power cable directly to the wall outlet. Test for power. If this fixes the issue, find the device that is causing the issue and do not use it.
9. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove the build-up of dust from the power supply fan vent holes. Make sure that the PC is turned off and that the power cord is plugged into a grounded outlet. Only use the end of the vacuum hose near the outside of the fan entrance.
Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.
10. If all of the above steps have been tried and the power supply light remains off, use the steps in the next section, use the next section Power supply light comes on or flashes , to reseat the cables and check the power switch connector.

HI CHECK THESE....
Step 1: Make sure the washer is receiving power. Check the cord, the plug, and the outlet. If a wall switch controls the outlet, make sure the switch is working. Look for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers at the main entrance panel. If the unit is receiving power and still won't run, press the reset button on the control panel (if the washer has one).

Look for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers at the main entrance panel. If the unit is receiving power and still won't run, press the reset button on the control panel (if the washer has one).
Step 3: Make sure that both water faucets are turned on and that the drain and soap-saver return hoses are properly extended, without kinks. If the washer has a water-saver button, make sure the button is depressed; water may not circulate through the filter nozzle if the basket is not full and the button is not depressed.
Step 4: To make sure the water is the proper temperature, check the temperature selector switches on the control panel to make sure they're properly set. Also check the water heater temperature control. It should be set no lower than 120 degrees F.
