Ps3 Wont Start!! PLEASE HELP

8 replies 159 views Edited Sep 8, 2012

My Ps3 is a 80gb july 2008 model and when I flip the switch in the back the red standby light shows and when I turn the ps3 on it beeps once like its going to turn on then turns green for a split second , then turns off like it was never turned on.

So the story is that I bought this ps3 used (in the same condition it is now) on craigslist. The Previous owner told me that he had the Power supply replaced, so I thought nothing of it. I finally got the ps3 and tried to figure out the problem via Google but as usual no luck :/   So, I went home and Checked the power supply ( i have no warranty) . I didint see a problem, but i still bought a new power supply , put it in there and boom. NOTHING . same problem.  I reallly need to find out what wrong with my ps3. ( Btw people tell me that my psp charger could help but my psp charger wont fit in the back of the ps3) 

Thanks in advance Chris

No yellow light at all, not even for a split second?

Regretably as the system does not have all of its original parts, it wont be considered serviceable by Sony. You will have to take it to a 3rd party service for the repairs. I would suggest searching online for reputable locations in your area. Sony does not authorize or license anyone to service the playstation systems, so I wish you the best of luck.

Google.com, Yellow pages. Im sure someone out there knows somthing about solid state electronics. No guarantee that they will be able to service the system however. Have you tried returning it to the person you purchased it from? Again, good luck with that.
