Default Broke PS3's on ebay

Has anyone ever got one of these broken units? Most say that they will not power on. Could this be fixed easily? Even if it costs a hundred dollars to send it to sony for a fix it would be cheaper than buying one from the store if you can get it cheap enough.

I've seen them but my gut tells me if they were an easy fix that the store selling them would do it and make a killing.

Yea. But if it is just a power supply or something like a button... I have emailed some of the people that have bought them so maybe someone will email me back with some info.

Let us know what you find out. I've seen a couple that say they power on but disk doesn't read, a few that say they play with no sound, and a few that say they seem to play but no output. I've debated getting one myself just to take it apart and mess around with it but they seem to sell for over a $100 and that seems a bit excessive if I can't get it to work.

One guy emailed and said "It has a blown MB and disc drive. Probly gonna part it out." What is the "MB"?

I know what you mean voos. I was thinking the same thing. I'm pretty handy and stuff but I don't want to drop 3bills on something that I could never get working. Some say that they work but have no a/v. Others don't have a hard drive. If you were able to get two and piece them out that might be an option. I don't know much about the ps3s or how to work on them.

I understand what you are saying but I am not going to shell out $500.00 on another game unit. I was mainly trying to get a cheap Blu ray player.

apply for the sony style card and get one for 350. Otherwise watch ebay. I got a 60 gig with 3 games (resistance, madden, COD3) and extra controller for 450 shipped. I am sure you can find a good system for around 350 - 400 shipped. Just ask the sellers a question.
