You mean the AV port?
If that is the issue use a HDMI cable.
The ports are part of the motherboard so you need to replace the whole thing.

I cannot play any dvd's , games or blu-ray discs on my PlayStation 3?

Odds are your disc reader is broken. If you have a warranty, you should try contacting either Sony or the retailer where you obtained your PS3 to get it fixed or replaced.

When I opened my playstation 3 it doesn't turn signs of power

Im presuming it didnt turn back on after you had put it ack together? If so open the PS3 back up again and check 3 things :-

1. There is a two wire connector at the back of the power supply, make sure this is plugged in
2. There is also a five wire connector at the front of the power supply that plugs into the motherboard. Also make sure this is connected.
3. The power supply sits on two upright brass pins, make sure it is fully sat down on these pins by applying light pressure to the top left hand side of the power supply.

Hope this helps

When you hit the power button, if nothing happens, check your outlet for power. Then check the plugs on your PS3, then check the plug slots on your PS3 for any broken wires. If not, send it into Sony, and within a week they will fix it and send you a PS3 Back. Hope this helped.
