OMG, my PS3 died.

Forums - Sony Discussion - OMG, my PS3 died.

Sigh, well, its been a great couple of years. *Cues sad and emotional music* Apparently, I heard a pop inside my PS3 and all of the power just left. Went online, and found out that the power supply or a fuse for it just broke. Great. Looks like I won't be gaming till Christmas! No online for a month, just bought Final Fantasy 13, and my dad is now getting LESS pay from his government job. FML. 

And do you know what's hilarious? My PS2 broke right when I bought Gran Turismo 3 a-spec from the bargin bin. LOL, oh the irony.

Sad to hear this?

Might want try to repair possibly - though not sure whether it would work out.



most power supplies deaths are accompanied with a pop, but its nothing that you need a new ps3 for, you can probably just buy another power supply (looking on ebay they run from about 5-25$) and replace the one in your ps3 (i would make sure that i got a power supply from the same model ps3 that i was repairing)

if you do decide to just replace the psu, do keep in mind that opening the ps3 will void the warranty.

i just went and looked on youtube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKmg7e7ufJM ), and found a video of someone replacing a psu, its about 5 mins long, he unscrews like 5-10 screws, and unplugs 2 things then puts it all back together

better than throwing it away i guess...



must be the auto selfdestruct system isntalled by Sony on all PS3s.

Well that's all right. You get a replacement under warranty, Unless you spilled something flammable on it.

Maybe you'll get lucky like I did.

My 60GB died and then I bought a 160GB. Then low and behold my 60GB went all zombie on me and now it is undead and working!
