My PS3 died. It’s a PS3 slim, less that 1 1/2 years old. It has no lights on at all. I believe it’s the power supply, but I’d like to be sure before buying a replacement.
I’ve taken it apart, and taken apart the power supply. I’ve tested the fuse and it isn’t blown. Nothing appears obviously bad.
Probing the small connector with four pins, with the power supply plugged in, there is no voltage between any of the pins. I’ve tried this both with the power supply completely removed, and with it in place (so that the two blade connectors are plugged in). The two large capacitors each have 168 volts in both cases.
I assume a working power supply would have some voltage showing on the four pins. Can anyone confirm this? Replacement power supplies are over $50, so I’d like to be sure.
Anyone know a good reliable source they can recommend?
