So recently I received a burnt out Ps3 Fat edition “60gb” found out that the power supply has gone to the silicon laden heaven we all like to call our work bench. This post and many more to come will be an account of what it takes to bring a dead ps3 back to life using parts you may already have laying around your work area.
what are we doing you ask? Why we are going to rip out the old power supply and swap it with an ATX PC power supply. Yes makes the system a bit bulky but if you have one laying around your work area or can rip one from a dead PC why not. It’s better than spending the 40$ to get one shipped from china. So stay tuned for the how and why.
Here are some pics to get you acquainted with the setup. Mind you this is not my work area, my work area is a bit smaller it was just easier to lay everything out on the bed 😉
