The power supply failed ( stepping down from 240v - 100v) while i was in a game. So the PS3 powered off instantly, and it will not turn on properly again.
After i replaced the step down transformer and plugs everything back in. The red light will still on when i plug it into a new step down(indicationg the power supply in the PS3 is not fried yet?). But when i try to start it up and i could hear the fans firing up, it will put itself into standby in abt 1 secs. And obviosuly failing to eject my disc inside.
Okay, try to turn it on with the sixaxis, but hold the ps button for 5-8 seconds: I think that can reset the PS config settings. or something like that. Also call the support number (800-488-7669)
If it's under warranty (which it should be since the system hasn't even been out for a year), I'd suggest trading it in for another one, but keep the hard drive or have them transfer the info, and get them to give you another game. If it stepped-down it may have browned-out, which means it may have fried the chips. It sounded like the PS3 tried to save it by turning off automatically, but if you're having troubles starting the OS, it sounds like it may have spiked before stepping down. Yeah, I'd get another one since it's under warranty. No use ice skating uphill.

Australia has a 230v supply, and the US 110v. The power supply for your charger will indicate what input voltage it can handle. PCs, for example, typically have power supplies that can use anything between 100v and 240v, which means you can take your laptop from country to country without worrying. My Ryobi charger on the other hand says 240v input, so it doesn't have this flexibility - usually it wouldn't need to. If yours says 110v then you'll need a converter for it to function properly in Australia.
BEFORE READING THIS PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT HAVE A PS3 AND I DON'T KNOW IF THIS WILL WORK. IT HAS WORKED FOR OTHER THINGS FOR ME BEFORE, BUT I CAN'T SAY FOR SURE THAT IT WILL WORK IN THIS CASE.
No, but you can get a 100v power supply and splice you ps3 power supply to it. if you dont know how to splice something, you simply cut both cords, strip the wires, and solder or twine the correct wires together. if the wires are insulated inside the shrink wrap (outer coating of rubber), that makes it even easier. just match the colors.
