Hi All - I’m new here. Been watching the channel on YouTube for a while and am I big fan.
We just had a big electrical storm where I am, during which, we heard a really loud clicking sound followed by all of the devices on one of our surge protectors restarting. Every device came back on except my PS5 which was in rest mode. I should also note that I have my PS5 plugged in via ethernet to my router. After the storm, my modem’s ethernet port which feeds my router also seems to be fried. I’ve heard of surges traveling through ethernet before and wonder if it somehow effected the PS5, or, despite the PS5 being plugged in to a surge protector, it is still fried.
I tried a bunch of things that I found online, including trying different power cables, different plug sockets, as well as unplugging from the back of the PS5, and holding the power button down for 10 seconds. Nothing works which makes me think the power supply is gone. If the PSU is gone, is that fixable?
