Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi would you be able to possibly assist me in troubleshooting my ps3 i have some questions and thought since you stated you have done tons of research you may be able to help and give suggestion on what i could do, my e mail is ohiomulchboy4 at (msn) dot com
Well, I'm sorry to say that the display models are garbage. You can input a code to "unlock" the unit so that you can play games and movies, but you have to do it every time you power it on.
Also, I am still doing a ton of circuitry research to find out the cause of the immediate shut down. So far I have found one chip that has a 50 on it that is at the front of the motherboard that has no resistance through it but the chips along each side of the chip have resistance. So I'm thinking that it may be some sort of fuse chip that can blow when exposed to a drasstic shock, as in a drop. I have a unit that does the same thing and I am going to try and bypass that circuit tomorrow and see if it works. I'll let you know.
As for your options...
1. Resell it on eBay As-Is
2. Try and repair it yourself.
3.Contact seller you purchased it from and ask what the return policy is. Return to seller for a refund if it was not stated as a demo model in the auction description. (refer to "item not as described" on ebay) You can even file a dispute within 90 days if it was not as described, even though it was listed as-is!
I hope this helps you. I wish you much luck. If you have any more questions, please contact me!!
