Default PS3 Super Slim PSU

Hello, i have dead PS3 with no power. I check fuse and it is ok and i track furder and i find that bridge rectifier have 0V on DC, AC is ok 240V. I remove the (GBU608) rectifier and the value in diode mode are

- to AC = 503
- to AC = 503
- to + = 930

Is this ok reading? this 930?

  • Can you please post a picture of the top and bottom of the PS3 power supply?
  • What's the model number of this console?
  • Is this the one with the plastic top-load? If so, i can take the one i have apart and give you some good comparison data.

Cool. I will get you a reply and some data this evening. Need to finish out the workday (at home) first...

I'll double check the PS3 model that i have, but i know for sure it's the top load version that i have laying around. The original owner never picked it up and went MIA for the last 2 years. It's mine now i guess

According to the PS3 devwiki, there are three main super slim versions:

Super Slim (nor/eMMC)
CECH-40xx
CECH-42xx
CECH-43xx

then with 240vac on the input you should have about 340vdc on the output.

i check the reading on second fuse and i got 0.02V and on the IC all pins are 0.2V exepr pin #5 voltage is jumping from 0.2V to 5V

Whats the model of your power supply? it should be molded on to the bottom plastic piece. The one that i have is a ADP-160AR - it has a white 4 pin connector.

In any case, the common failures for the PS3 and PS4 supplies are the N channel FETs and diodes downstream. If you haven't already, i suggest checking the four 3-pin heatsinked parts for shorts.

In my supply, it's a K15A60U and a BYV29FX-600 diode close to the big 450V cap. You can use the DMM in continuity / beep mode for the N-FET, and in diode mode for the diode.

Next to the 12V output, there are two heatsinked components as well. For me, it's two STPS3045CT diodes wired in parallel.

I've fixed several PS4 and Xbox One supplies with failed FETS/Diodes.

What's the markings on that IC that you show in post #10?

My board is N160A 002L
I check all FET's and diodes and they are ok, at first i thought that B3045G Switch Mode Power Rectifier was shorted becoust pin 1 and 3 was shorted. Then i remo it from board and it was ok. The false reading was becouse the 1 and 3 is connected to the primary of transformator. All other diodes and heatsink element show no short.

@ ngth82 - the IC is FS117

I agree...

BUT... if you look at the US version, my supply has a DNP013 by Fairchild Semi. (http://www.agspecinfo.com/pdfs/D/DNP013.PDF)

Fairchild has a device FSL117 - note the addition of the L. (https://www.mouser.jp/datasheet/2/14...IN-1010027.pdf)

Both are green-mode Fairchild power switches.
I just can't find the package marking for the FSL117 - it's not in their datasheet. Maybe this is a good start... Pin out looks similar except pin 4 between the two devices.

Yes, i think this is the same component. On my measuring i get 0V on all (exactly -0.8V) except on pin5 i get jumping volage from -2 to 6V. The datasheet say that pin 5 is STARTUP and pin 4 is V-IN

I'd look at the cap too as STJ suggested if you haven't already. Got a cap meter?
