Are the power supplies cross compatible?
Hi, just recently, I bought a used PS3 with the YLOD to fix, jailbreak, ect. The console is a CECHB01 (All Black, 20GB, Backward Compatible, 4 USB ports, and a card reader) and it did not come with a power supply. I have all the nessisary experience to repair the console, but once I reflow it, I have no way to power it on and test it.
So my Question is this:
I have a normal working CECHK01 (Newer, not backward compatible)PS3 that has a working power supply (I don't remember the PSU's model number, but I do know that it has a black plastic shell), can I take that power supply out of the CECHK01, and put it in the CECHB01 just to test it out, and make sure it works, or do I have to use a power supply designed for the CECHB01 specifically? If so, what model power supply do I need to buy?
PSU APS-226 fit in the following PS3's. 20GB CECHB01 40GB CECHG01 60GB CECHA01 80GB CECHE01 EADP-300AB for the CECHK01 so it will really depend on the connectors to see if you can interchange them, I'd be concerned about any prolonged testing and would probably see if I could get the right part for it. Here are some interesting links regarding your PSU http://community.us.playstation.com/mess...

PlayStation 3 Power Supply (PSU) compatibility:
CECHA01 - APS-231, APS 226, ZSSR539IA
CECHB01 - APS-231, APS 226, ZSSR539IA
CECHE01 - APS-231, APS 226, ZSSR539IA
CECHG01 - APS-231, APS 226, ZSSR539IA
These consoles are all compatible, but are not identical to each other. Unfortunately, no. Your CECHK01 PSU will NOT be compatible with your CECHB01 PSU.
Best of Luck,
