PlayStation 3 Repair Solutions
If you have a PlayStation 3, congratulations, as it is one of the most trouble free gaming systems currently on the market. In general, a PS3 runs far more smoothly than similar gaming consoles (such as the Xbox 360) and has far fewer issues that will need repairs. However, no technology is perfect, and if your PlayStation 3 does start malfunctioning, there are several different ways to go about fixing it.
To start, if your PS3 is still under warranty, you should certainly contact Sony about any problems and have it send it out for repairs if the problem appears serious. However, if your PS3 is not under warranty, sending it out for repairs can be a costly as well as a time consuming, solution. You should expect to pay well over $100 for the most basic PS3 repairs, and if a hard drive or other replacement parts are necessary, you will end up paying much, much more.
Fortunately, there are PS3 home repair guides that can teach you how to make all the basic PS3 repairs in the comfort of your own home quickly, and often with little added expense other than the repair manual itself. Some of the most common problems with the PlayStation 3 are issues with flashing yellow or red lights, problems with the blu-ray disc player, freezing of the game console and “no display” issues. If you are playing PS2 games on your PS3, there are additional compatibility problems that may arise and can often be fixed by updating your firmware. Additional problems can also result from internet connectivity issues.
Fortunately PS3 repair guides such as PS3 Repaired can help you fix all these problems quickly at home and get back to your gaming enjoyment quickly.
