Power supply or board issue.

Hispeck -

Can you post the model number of the PS3? It should start with CUH-****. or SCPH-****.

I think you mean the PS3 Slim based on the description. I would highly suspect it's a board issue, not the power supply. I've rarely seen bad power supplies in the consoles i've worked on. Most PS3 failures are Red Light of Death, or Green Light of Death issues. Those can be fixed temporarily, but you're better off just getting a used one off of Craigslist.

I'm a hardware engineer focused on networking equipment for my day job. I void warranties and fix consumer electronics for fun.
