My new PS3 lost power today?

#1Jx1010Posted 3/31/2013 10:30:02 PM
While playing a game online today
my PS3 shut off by itself completely.
Not even the red stand by light was on, I had never seen this happen before... not even with my old phat PS3.

I press the power button even tho it had no night and it came back on,
should I be worried?

Sucks for you. You stated that it's new if you have the receipt then I would go return it.

Sucks for you. You stated that it's new but I wouldn't worry about it unless it happens more times.

Monitor it, if it happens again - return it.

However, it could simply be a case of the power cable not being in correctly. It got moved and the power went off, but had enough of a connection to come back on. Take out the power cable, put it back in and make sure it's firm.

Take no chances. Take it back and take advantage of the its brand new state. Better be safe than sorry...

Wouldn't want this to be a real problem that only manifests itself AFTER the warranty expires.

power cord might be bad, could have come out or your power might have gone on and off.
