Ps3 Super Slim loose AC Port

[ Edited ]
8 Replies 1,959 Views edited 15-01-2013

Anyone has noticed that the power plug port on the PS3 Super Slim is loose? When I connected the power cable I noticed that the power port wobbled a little.

I want to know if this is normal..

 

I found a video showing that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYrRNgwDqS0

 

Anyone with a Super Slim can check this?

 

I appreciate.. :smileyhappy:

Last time I checked that's part of the design, can't remember why though.

 

And yes, it's normal, you don't have to worry.

Re: Ps3 Super Slim loose AC Port

The PS3 Super Slim has a built in transformer and most transformers tend to make this noise for a few minutes. This should go away on its own.
My PC Monitor does the same, and so do all the phone chargers I've ever owned. :smileytongue:

Re: Ps3 Super Slim loose AC Port

My super slim also does this (bought in Jan 2014 from Amazon UK)- I've tried to find out if it's an intentional part of the design or not!
