Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The other day we had a thunder storm and lightning struck right outside my house. This in turn caused a surge. The surge ruined my cable box, router and PS3. The cable box and router were replaced by my service provider luckily. My PS3 will actually turn on. However, it will not turn off. It will also not connect to the internet either through wireless or a wired connection. All was connected to a surge protector, even though it it close to 8 years old. Not sure if that matters or not. I am also not in warranty. I want to know if it could be repaired by someone. I am not sending it to Sony if there is a $150 charge. I sent a claim to my renters insurance since they do cover surges, I will find out if they will pay for it tomorrow. If not though, I need to know my options.
Get a surge protector for your most loved systems, that way the worst case scenario is you will need a cord replacement. Unplugging it when it's not in use may also cool it down.

swap to another surge protector. if it still does it, it is a power surge at the outlet, if it does not, the Surge Proctector has worn out. have someone with the appropriate knowlege have a look at the outlet as well. older outlets especially tend to wear to the point where the plug literally falls out of the wall.
