How bad can static electricity harm a PS3 Console? (Specifically the super-slim)

#1VodkaSwivelPosted 1/4/2013 7:11:25 PM
Forgive me if this is a stupid question.

I ended up discharging some static electricity (twice actually, within a span of five minutes or so) right to the metal parts of the disc reader inside my PS3 while I was disc changing. I know that static electricity is generally bad for electronic components, such as motherboards, etc. and just wanted to know if this will effect my PS3's performance or "health" in someway.

As long as you were not touching anything inside the ps3 then you are fine.

No need to concern yourself. Just go about your business.

This refers to the exclusively internal components of the PS3, like the processor and such right? Sorry to sound dense, just making sure.

You should be okay, but it is a Sony product afterall, so you should be a little bit wary.

Idiotic. Would make more sense if we were talking about a MS product.

Well it's a Sony product so at least it's more reliable then anything with a Microsoft logo on it.

Why did you both assume I care about Microsoft in any fashion?

Typical reflexive Sony fanboy behaviour.
