Sorry to ask again but, got problems, wont start up.
OK, I apologise up front but I cant find a definitive answer, so a brief history;
My son used one of the usb ports to charge a toy indoor helicopter and after about 2 mins, his ps3 slim 160gb cech2503a 2 years old, shut-down and wouldn't start up.
The stand by light is on and when pressed it goes to start and gets green lights then shuts down. There is no flashing lights and only one start up beep. After it shuts down there are no lights until you repress the start button which then goes to standby again. It will not go into recovery and only does as described above. There has never been any modifications or flashing or firmware downgrades and only official Sony software upgrades. It was working fine upto this point although it was a lot over Christmas due to new games. Avice seems to be psu or power board, so I'm needing advice on how to test or trouble shoot with ammeter or whatever etc.
